Joe Biden, Donald Trump And Sherry Preston discussed on Noon Report with Rick Van Cise

"With Joe Biden's announcement that he's running for president comes very big questions about how his campaign will run. And how much the end a hill. Testimony will come back to bite him Biden was the Senate Judiciary chairman in nineteen Ninety-one. When Anita hill testified against Justice. Clarence Thomas supreme court nomination. ABC's political director reclined spoke about it with Sherry Preston. Taking a look at that. Now, it is. So disturbing to watch that to watch what happened during that? I mean, it really really was. It is uncomfortable questions that are asked or just completely inappropriate. You know, he might have tried to call an apologized, but one thing she said is until there's real progress and women can see there's real progress. Then we're not going to get anything done to me. It's a it's a lesson to the younger colleagues that this was a signal moment. This this shape degeneration of conversations the concept of sexual harassment really wasn't in the national conversation before the Nita hill hearings. And it is so long ago. Seeing Joe Biden there is the chairman of the judiciary committee next to Strom Thurmond next Ted Kennedy. This was the the reminds you that Joe Biden is old. He'd be the oldest man ever elected president. And he was a senior statesman then back in nineteen Ninety-one and his handling of that had repercussions. And it's real for people. Not just the need. But whole generation of women who came up after that. And and I think for for the vice president part of his calling card is going to be the the fact that he has his record of service, but it is going to be an obstacle as well, and he is going to have to look backward. Even as he tries look forward. And when you talk about that gender aside when you talk about the issue of Joe Biden and his age and younger Americans who say we are ready to move on. And there's others in the Democratic Party say look, our number one issue has to be defeating Donald Trump, and that's what Joe Biden made clear in that opening video that he had he was saying this is a seminal moment in our country. We need to make this decision. So it's like you have these questions. Do you? You know, push forward with things like Medicare for all the green new deal or do you go? We just got a win here. Democrat his focus on Charlottesville reminds a lot of Democrats even some independence and Republicans of what they don't like about President Trump. He didn't mention his rivals. He didn't really mention his own biography in his campaign launch. He's trying to make it about Trump about the general election to reform. Focus where the campaign conversation will be and look he enters is a front runner. He's particularly weak as a front runner may be weaker than anyone we've seen is a front runner in generations. But he's going to be a formidable presence. And I think he's going to start to shape a racist. So far has been

Term limits so pay what you can apply that. If you're talking about age, you know, they'll play at the Donald they'll stop Nancy Pelosi right there. How many people congress are over seventy? Oh, I see where you're going. So you want if we're going to have a a age limit on. On supreme court justices, and they're a co equal branch of government than why don't we have it for the executive and the legislative branches, right? Would that gentleman? Serail arms ninety six. Thurgood? Well, no, no, no. No. No. Yes. Strom Thurmond Strom Thurmond you're thinking about. Yes. Thank you. Thank you. Six I think he finally left. Well, there's been another one recently that decided not to run in eighteen and the reason he decided not to run. Everybody was being very polite about it. But he had no idea where he was or who he was. It was sad. He was. Center and he did not run in two thousand eighteen because of health problems. Well, it was because he didn't know he he had no idea who he was. So he was making voting on laws. Cripple. But your minds all there. That's one thing. But look what the Democrats are tomato wanna bring it up. But they did bring it up, but they dropped out. Ronald Reagan make decisions what he had Alzheimer's or did he have L hammers when he was making decisions. Well, I don't know if there's obviously Alzheimer's comes grows at a stage. But the the Burri the reporting is that he was of sound mind when he was in office, but he wrote that letter to was saying, I, you know, the goodbye letter saying I've been diagnosed with this. I think that was six seven years after he was out of the White House. So was there. Some impairment. I don't know. I don't know. However now. I take I wanted. My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at forty eight. And when I look back. Yeah. When you get an early you an acceleration pathway fifty two, but I look back when they diagnosed her forty eight I look back. I wonder if she was having problems at forty six. But you don't think of it because she was so young and we all make mistakes. Forget all right. Well, you're gonna plan aches. I'm sorry. No. But that's the thing. I mean. Okay. Well, I can't find my keys where did I put my keys? That's not a sign of Alzheimer's. I know I know. But but. Whole thing. She did. And you know, when you look at the crazy thing Nancy Pelosi is now how about that it and we'll see what's in it. Well, no, it's it's it's actually worse than that. There have been reports from the media that that covers the capital that she stumbles and says things that don't make sense. And and so they're they're they're they're a lot of people are watching for a sign of dementia or Alzheimer's. But so far the woman seems to be doing fine.

"The president as well. That's interesting. How centers questions it is? But how old was John McCain? What he was still serving how old was straw, Thurman. Oh, no Strom Thurmond serve in congress for like seventy five years. No argument. I think the question to me is whether it's a age limit or a term limit. So well for the supreme court they're suggesting like a specific limit. In the article. But I like about other idea I like that idea because then you know, how long they're going to be in there. You know, Hoffman vacancies are gonna come up. You're not picking like if it's an age limit. Then you're gonna be trying to pick the youngest person possible that you think you can get through the Senate. All right. So how about an either or either eighteen years or seventy years of age, whichever comes first, I don't think that's necessary. I think just eighteen years how term limits for congress because they're the ones voting on all of this horrible crap that goes to the supreme in favor of turn limits period. It's kind of like when you got a lot of bad choices like, and none of the people getting great, you might as well rotate, the socialists or rotate, the fascist depending on what if you live in a red district or blue district. Okay. Let's get back into the article these same incentives, and they're discussing the incentives for nominating. Some supreme court justices create extraordinary pressure for Justice stay on the bench long after.

But only one bit Strom Thurmond. There's no second example, no one could name a second Dixiecrats who moved to the Republican party. So what kind of cases this that hinges on one guy?
