he problems of Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden continue to worsen as the gaffes and senior moments are piling up at an alarming rate.
The former vice president has had a hellish summer on the campaign trail during which he has been battered by his younger adversaries but has more often been his own worst enemy as he struggles against what appears to be senility.
Biden’s once bright fortunes took another big hit last week when a New York Times bombshell revealed that his ex-boss Barack Obama summoned his aides to implore them not to let lunchbucket Joe embarrass himself.
Former second lady Jill Biden made an unusually honest pitch to voters on Monday for her husband to be the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.
“I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that,” she said at a campaign event in Nashua, N.H. “But I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race.”
“Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe is,” she continued. “But you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election. And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”
She added: “So I think if your goal — I know my goal — is to beat Donald Trump, we have to have someone who can beat him.”
If it sounds familiar to Democrat voters, it eerily reminiscent of how the party establishment called for a circling of the wagons around the electable Hillary over Bernie Sanders in 2016 and everybody knows how that story turned out.
Whether or not Dr. Jill will be able to convince the rabid, identity-obsessed, socialist, open borders Resistance of the need to fall in line and put their faith in a guy who can barely remember his own name on any given day remains to be seen.
Mrs. Biden’s appeal comes at a crucial time for the ex-veep who is losing ground to Elizabeth Warren who he eked out a razor-thin 10 vote win over in the vaunted Iowa State Fair poll.

That’s definitely interesting to think about.
Warren will continue to challenge the old geezer and now appears to be a safe choice for an establishment that is horrified that the raw communism being proposed by Sanders.
Not to mention that Senator Warren continues to get a free pass from the media over years of misrepresenting her Native American heritage to promote her academic career while Biden is rapidly becoming a punch line.
Will the rabid base listen to Dr. Jill and “swallow” in order to support a candidate who may be drooling on himself by the time he gets to Milwaukee for the Democratic National Convention next summer?
It’s probably not very likely but you can’t blame her for launching a salvage operation to save her husband.
