    I voted no on this... my reason, Kennedy is not a viable candidate for the Presidency. That is, he has no chance of being elected, and has not put forward national directives or policies - no positions on major issues, foreign or domestic.

    I think we all understand the directions of Trump... isolationism, pro-authoritarianism, pro-corporatism, and anti-union/worker; and I venture to say anti-woman, anti-equality, and anti-social programs. In addition, he has shown himself to completely lack moral virture or patrotic honor! That someone might vote for him gives me pause as to their own sense of decency!

    Joe Biden has none of the "isms" of Trump, and is for working people, and yes equality of races and sexes... very much equal opportunity. Yes, at times his polices move slowly, or not at all... but that is the nature of our system of government... there is a Congress that must concur, and at this time, for the sake of politics alone, and not the right thing, they often oppose. That requires a change... I say in representation in Congress!

    I agree with san.gander — Biden is working for our good and making historical strides at it that need to be continued by reelection of him and by turning the congress into a rational legislative body working for the good of the country by ridding us of those dividing us against one another to benefit only themselves in their sick drives to weild "power" over the rest of us. Putting Kennedy in the mix risks giving thoughtless voters a meaningless choice as alternative votes — against their own welfare. Certainly makes no snese to me when we should be puting country above any other factor.
