"Is your opinion favorable or unfavorable of Joe Biden?"
What should interest us is that Joe Biden is so well perceived in the nation, mostly because he is so unknown to most people except from the past 2 weeks of generally positive press coverage.
We should strive to allow people to do complicated and controversial jobs and not destroy them personally.
It would be refreshing to get through 4 years of an Obama-Biden ticket that promoted good liberal ideas and Biden still have good favorable opinion numbers.
This is a challenge to partisans on both sides to oppose the bad ideas from the other side while respecting the politicians, who they are, and what they stand for.
If we can, it will allow us to come together better in a truly tragic moment, and also give us an opportunity to do the right thing when it is possible.
