To the editor:

After hosting several presidential candidates and with careful consideration, I have decided to vote for Vice President Joe Biden on Primary Day, Tuesday Feb. 11.

I like many things about several other candidates, but Biden tops my list. Joe Biden has vast experience with domestic and foreign policy. Joe is not afraid to say if he was wrong, unlike so many politicians who won’t concede they made a mistake. Joe is empathetic to the needs and suffering of everyday citizens, a characteristic sadly lacking in today’s White House. Americans feel Joe Biden understands and hears them, whether they are discussing illness and loss, health care, discrimination, low pay and benefits, or their worries about educating their kids and their futures in this changing climate. Joe listens, and Joe has a heart.

Joe Biden wants to create a better future for all, and so do I. Joe Biden has my confidence and my vote.

He's just another politician trying to say video games cause violence yet he sent thousands to die in the middle east and allowed the US to bomb hundreds of thousands of civilians. Let him enjoy his life with his Corvettes that he couldn't drive for 8 years when he was a VP.
