Grandpa Biden (D.)
Updated: Oct 2, 2019
Quick Bio: Born before the Slinky was invented Joe Biden became the longest serving Senator Delaware has ever had. He went on to become Vice President of the United States under Barack Obama. With his length of service Biden is arguably the most qualified person to be president since George H. W. Bush.
Pros: For a likability factor Old Joe has it. He's a very down to Earth kind of guy. Joe Biden was consistently one of the poorest senators so he truly knows our struggles. Even though he is a normal person he has a healthy grasp of many different topics. He'd easily be a respected representative of the United States in international affairs.
Cons: Joe Biden chatters too much. His weak filter is equal to Donald Trump. The character of a man can be told by his off the cuff remarks. Joe Biden is more silly and off-putting, rather than rude and disrespectful. Also the dude is old. He'd be both the oldest person elected president and on his 1st day he'd be the oldest ever president, beating Ronald Reagan's last day when he was a few weeks short of his 78th birthday. At least every day of his presidency he'd be a record breaker.
Conclusion: Joe Biden is a candidate the Democratic Party could get behind. I can see him bringing the different factions together and promoting a transition to the next generation. There is no other office for Biden so if he doesn't get the presidency he will fade to patriarch status.
