I have been thinking of running for President. Until a few months ago, I had never been elected to anything, but after winning the contest for Precinct Representative of Building 5 at Carolina Meadows, a race that was hard fought [even though I was the only candidate, since nobody else wanted the job,] I think I am ready. Some might say I am too old, because I will be 87 when taking the oath of office, but now that Joe Biden is about to jump in [or so it is speculated], that argument doesn't carry as much weight. Of course I would be 91 when I was up for re-election, so maybe I should choose Bernie as my running mate so that he can take over for me after one term. If I won, I would have to give up my teaching gig at Columbia, but I could still go on posting to this blog.
Speaking of Biden, his entry poses an existential problem for me. If the polls continue to show, as they do now, that he has far and away the best chance of beating Trump, do I throw my support to him or not?
