My first combination to replace Trump & Pence was Biden and Harris, but after last night I see that an emergence replacement for poor old Joe must be found.

Yes, alas, Biden looked weak and lost. They say that Joe refued to prepare for his debate. Joe has been through a heck of a lot of emotional trauma since entering the Senate many years ago, and it’s starting to show. Indeed, it’s becoming glaringly obvious that his heart isn’t in this run for president. I suspect he’s just going through the motions of running because he thinks his party is counting on him.

This is dangerous for the country. Trump may not be much, but the reptilian predator that he is will instantly pick up on and rip this weakness of Joe to shreds. So my new combination may come as a shock.

I now see a long shot to begin the race, Senator Michael F. Bennet, who has broken through the field as being decisive, confidant and well informed to be my choice to replace Biden for being teamed with Harris. Together they will make a dynamic combination that could easily smoother our current moron-in-chief.

Even through I prefer Bennet at the top of the ticket, Harris, a women of color, is the critical piece. Winning the White House for Democrats goes though Black women, and Harris can be enormously inspiring for women and other minorities, and a deadly foe for Republicans — their worst nightmare.

They might want to use a simple slogan — Screw Trump.
