Happy Sunday BaddaBing BaddaBlog readers! This is Politics, Politalks, the place where we cover any and all relevant political news. As usual, the opinions I express here are solely my own and should not be thought of as a representation of any other group that I have been affiliated with, am currently affiliated with, or may find myself affiliated with in the future. Alright, let’s get down to business.
This week former Governor of Rhode Island, Lincoln Chafee and former Senator of Virginia, Jim Webb each announced that they will no longer be perusing the position of President of the United States of America. This means that the campaign that was already mostly Clinton vs. Sanders, is now even more Clinton vs. Sanders. Martin O’Malley is still in the running, and if you do not know who that is you are not alone. Chances are he will be dropping out of the election soon too, as it is hard to be in third place for an election as close-knit as this one and still receive enough funding to be a viable candidate. I personally am fine with Hillary and Bernie hashing it out for the next few months as I am a fan of both of them and would be happy with either of them moving on to the general election. And if I’m being completely honest, I would love to see Clinton running for President with Sanders as her Vice-President.
In other news pertaining to the Democratic primary, Joe Biden formally announced that he would not run for the position of president. As previously stated on this blog, while this is not necessary surprising, it definitely is news worthy. By not running for president, Biden’s endorsement has become the most valued in the entire Democratic Party. I would say that Obama’s endorsement is more so, but it would be highly unusual for a sitting president to give any kind of support to a candidate. Therefore, Biden’s endorsement will strongly impact the election in a way that few other individuals could.
