Former Vice President Joe Biden can’t stay away from scandal. Now, in the wake of a stunning marriage announcement, many people are saying the same thing: It’s over.
Biden can no longer hide the fact that he is an incompetent candidate. As his political allies have grown thin, his 68-year-old wife, Jill Biden, is all he has left. She is out on the campaign trail defending him from various allegations.
Some are calling her a “secret asset” to her husband’s presidential campaign. He even recently introduced himself at a major fundraiser in the following way: “My name is Joe Biden and I’m Jill Biden’s husband.”
Clearly, the two are playing off each other in an attempt to draw a contrast with other Democratic candidates. So far, the spouses of candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Kamala Harris, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg have been practical no-shows.
Jill Biden, as the former Second Lady, is no stranger to the spotlight and knows how to handle a crowd and soften her husband’s image. But this new strategy by the political power couple won’t be enough to save Biden’s campaign.
Mrs. Biden is so much a “secret asset” as she is the only asset left. The Democratic Party’s has become so radical that even Biden isn’t liberal enough. This is the party of socialists now, not establishment Democrats like Biden.
