Dems choosing a presidential contender for veep is a distraction vs necessity for choosing a presidential contender in light of Biden's age: pundits are like warthogs, chasing each other through the brush and suddenly changing directions as pursuers suddenly become the pursued. Perhaps a disclaimer should be required at beginning and end of each podcast: " The experts speaking have no predictive skills, please regard this as entertainment."
