WASHINGTON — So which Democrat would President Donald Trump most like to run against in 2020?

He says it's Joe Biden. Trump tells CBS News in an interview broadcast Thursday that "I dream about Biden."

Biden, who was vice president under Barack Obama, sought the Democratic presidential nomination twice but eventually dropped out of each race. Biden considered running in 2016, but decided against it, citing the trauma of his son Beau's death from cancer in 2015.

Now Biden is seen as a possible 2020 Democratic contender. And unlike Obama, he's shown no reluctance to criticize Trump directly.

Trump returned some of the criticism in the interview, saying Obama took Biden "out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I'd love to have it be Biden."

    It won't be Biden. The Democrat Party is firmly in control of the radical left fringe. There is no longer room for moderates within the party. You must applaud when someone calls Ivanka a "c*nt", cheer when they say "Thank God for abortion", and say capitalism sucks or you're no longer welcome in the Democrat Party. By any honest account, it appears they have passed the point on no return.

    Biden has been sucking off of the government tit his entire adult life, when is it enough? I agree with Packman though, the party has jumped the shark and anyone not a rabid socialist will never get the nomination.
