The candidates are entering a fall campaign season that could prove pivotal for their operations, in both good ways and bad. In terms of polling, the numbers have been quite static. Former Vice President Joe Biden is still the man to beat, having sustained a double-digit lead over his competitors throughout the dog days of summer despite numerous mistakes that would have been fatal to any other candidate. Biden, whose first run for the presidency more than 30 years ago bottomed after he was found borrowing words from the former Labour leader Neil Kinnock during a speech, is a master of the gaffe and … [Read more...] about Can Joe Biden maintain his lead over the fall?
Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have launched a strident defence of the electability of their progressive beliefs, and accused more moderate Democrats of using “Republican talking points”. In the first night of the Democratic Party’s second debate – an event seen as do-or-die for several candidates – the senators lambasted their rivals as being “afraid” of big ideas. “I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for,” Ms Warren said in response to a comment from former congressman John Delaney.

opinion USA TODAY Published 7:31 PM EDT Jul 9, 2019 John Delaney — a lawyer, businessman and former congressman from Maryland — announced his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination two years ago. Since then, he has struggled to gain traction in the crowded field. In a meeting with USA TODAY’s Editorial Board after the first debate in Miami, the 56-year-old candidate criticized progressive ideas such as "Medicare for All" and the "Green New Deal," outlined his own proposals on health care and the environment, and argued that his party should choose a more moderate candidate if it hopes to defeat President Donald Trump. Questions and answers have been edited for length and clarity: Q. Tell us about yourself. A. I had a very long and successful career as an entrepreneur, focused on the needs of small to midsize businesses. About 10 years ago my wife and I decided to dedicate the rest of our lives to public service, which led me to run … [Read more...] about Q&A with 2020 candidate John Delaney
Daniel R. DePetris 27 June 2019 6:13 AM 27 June 2019 6:13 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Notepads out, pencils in-hand, and water at the ready, a pack of Democratic presidential candidates did battle last night in the first nationally televised debate of the primary. There were no mentions of little hands, no personal insults, and not much entertainment (Donald Trump after all wasn’t part of the show), but there were plenty of generalities, talking points, and soliloquies. The two-hour debate was quite frankly a boring affair, with the more low-profile, desperate candidates trying to get the attention of the moderators like an elementary school student tries to impress the teacher. There was Elizabeth Warren at centre stage, the professor with a plan for every single problem America faces. There was Cory Booker, the senator from New Jersey who tried throughout the night to get Americans to remember their better angels.
