So the Dems had a cornucopia of candidates for president, various sexes, sexuality and colors. Now they have two white, male candidates that will be over 80 years old during the next presidential term. What happened?
The same thing that has been happening in the Republican party for decades.
no, Trump is the eldest elected Republican president. Reagan and Bush were in their 60's when elected. Biden and Bernie will be the oldest ever if elected.
I thought the Dems were the woke party and would elect a diverse candidate. Republicans don't claim to be woke.
I seem to recall an African American who served two terms as President. And, several "woke" candidates (openly gay; openly Buddhist), which is more than one can say about that other party. Seems like more diverse to me, but that's just "a hunch"
Yeah, but Lincoln freed the slaves.
