This country's bizarre process of choosing a president rolls on. Mrs. C and I supported Elizabeth Warren and were sad about the way things turned out. We are Democrats and despise the incumbent but now we must choose between imperfect alternatives. Joe Biden was in town yesterday. I wanted to photograph the event but I also wanted to see and hear whether he was, well, in full control of his faculties.
He was. His speech was articulate, engaged and moving. There is a biggish set of state primaries this Tuesday and Missouri is one of them. Biden has many problems but we expect to vote for him. Although many of our friends and a member of our family vigorously disagree, Sanders is unacceptable to us, although we agree with some of his positions; he is so shrill, so uncompromising, so impractical. Bernie visits here Monday morning. We shall see how things turn out.
