The title of a recent Atlantic article speaks for itself — “Stay Alive, Joe Biden: Democrats need little from the front-runner beyond his corporeal presence.” PJ Media puts it a little more succinctly — ‘The Atlantic’ Begs Joe Biden Not to Die.”
In her article for the Atlantic, Alex Wagner writes, “Biden exists primarily as an idea, rather than an actual candidate.” Her take on Biden’s surge in the late primaries is that it has much more to do with what Democrats think of his past 40 years than what he actually is today.
Wagner points to a Politico piece that paints Biden as a man caught in “campaign limbo.” While many Democrats blame this on the circumstances of the current coronavirus crisis, Wagner says that doesn’t explain the Biden of the past three months.
Wagner writes, “If you were on the campaign trail for the past three months, what struck you was not Biden’s organization (there was little), or his resources (there were few), or even the campaign messaging (Joe Biden has been—and forever will be—Joe Biden). What was striking was the sense of anguish and urgency articulated by everyone, everywhere, all the time. And that was before the pandemic.”
The question is — can the ghost of Biden past hope to beat the Trump of today?
