I do not understand the positive case for Biden's candidacy. Can someone explain it? (Note: "vaguely associated with Obama" is not a positive case.)

A I expected, the vast majority of these answers amount to, "other people seem to like him." Not a single person in the thread cited an actual thing he has said or done. I personally don't think "other people seem to like him" is a strong or durable premise for a candidacy. 🤷‍♂️

When I die and go to hell all I will see for eternity is my own Twitter typos, scrolling by endlessly.
