Unfortunately, politics is often a series of choices. For people who won't vote for Trump and like the establishment status quo, Biden is pretty much it for now. However, he does say some crazy things like the capital gains rate should be 39.6 percent--want to see the biggest stock market crash in history? Just implement that one.
The only other non-crazy Democrats running are Tulsi Gabbard and Steve Bullock. The rest of them are proposing to more or less give away everything possible with absolutely no means to pay for any of it--paying off people's student loans or medical debt.

He's got the politician disease of thinking he's smarter than he is. However, he has a history of off-the-cuff musings that make him seem a little daffy at times. I think what concerns most people right now is that he seems to be at the very early stages of dementia. He's clearly lost a step.

Well, it will be one of the funniest ways for Trump to win. The Democrats are eating their own right now. Why the left is attacking Obama, etc. is kind of bewildering.
Additionally, the DNC is prematurely trying to narrow the field. It's September 2019, not May of 2020. Yes, there are too many people running, but the voters should be making the choice, not the DNC or the media. This is why they lost last time. Hillary Clinton simply wasn't a likable person. Remember, early on the establishment thought the Republican front runner would be Jeb Bush. Yet, he didn't drop out until he placed poorly in South Carolina. The electorate often behaves in ways the establishment doesn't anticipate.
