Biden Says He’s ‘Most Qualified’ to Be President. Will That Be Enough?

Even if one believes the ex-vice president when he says he's "the most qualified person in the country" to sit in the Oval Office, is that enough to get him through a crowded primary and Trump?

Biden Says He’s ‘Most Qualified’ to Be President. Will That Be Enough?

Ex-vice president Joe Biden told a Montana crowd on Monday night that he is “the most qualified person in the country” to be president, according to a report from The Washington Post.

The comments will surely set off a buzz of speculation about Biden’s 2020 plans; many political observers have acknowledged the former U.S. senator and two-term vice president would be an instant frontrunner in a crowded Democratic primary field.

But one has to wonder if Biden’s boast, even if true, is enough to get the Delawarean through dozens of primary competitors and, ultimately, President Donald Trump.

As NTK Network pointed out on Monday, a recent survey found Iowa Democrats want “generational change” in their party. Biden, who will be 77 years old when Iowans go to their caucuses in February 2020 and served for decades in Washington, D.C., may not fit the “generational change” bill.

What’s more, one could argue Hillary Clinton was more qualified than Donald Trump to be president in 2016. She was a former secretary of state, U.S. senator, first lady, and accomplished lawyer, while Trump was a businessman and celebrity. The Republican’s appeal, though, trumped Clinton’s experience. Would the same happen to a candidate Biden in 2020?
