Calls for withdrawal after Biden’s humiliating defeat

The double victory that I had hoped for on Thursday — Biden over Trump in the CNN debate and the US soccer team over Panama in Copa America — never happened, as both Biden and the soccer team went down in humiliating defeats.

In fact, both bombed, and their fall was heard loud and clear across this nation. Biden had no answer to a vigorous Trump, who got away with a long series of his usual lies but who seemed much younger, energetic, well-spoken and disciplined.

Biden should now “withdraw from the race,” according to influential commentator Andrew Sullivan.

Their words are echoed by many, as the Democratic Party and its supporters are reeling from what Steven Schmidt, an anti-Trump former Republican, calls “a disaster of the first magnitude” for Biden.

Klein adds his voice to all those who think change must now happen:

There was panic in the reactions from leading Democrats as well as grass root
