If Biden gets the nod and nominates anti-abortion, anti-birth control,
anti- union and everything else, Kasich, Trumpf will win. Does anyone
really think a ticket made up of two white men, one with a dubious past
history on women and a total garrulous-full-of-himself windbag combined
with everything Kasich is will gin up the base of the Democratic Party. I,
for one, would not vote and only concentrate on local elections.  Trumpf
would win in a landslide.
