Biden, next US President? is anti-Netanyahu and probably anti-Israel

HI, Daniel. You said,

"...while a figure like (the Jewish) Bernie Sanders declares that "to the degree that [Israelis] want us to have a positive relationship, I think they're going to have to improve their relationship with the Palestinians."

That was my "switch" signal to talk about the current status of the US Presidential election. This is impolite of me, I realize. I'll try to be brief. I just came across the following:

"Here's what we do know. Tens of millions of dollars donated to the Clinton Foundation was funneled to the organization through a Canadian shell company which has made tracing the donors nearly impossible. Less than 10% of donations to the Foundation has actually been released to charitable organizations and $2M that has been traced back to long time Bill Clinton friend Julie McMahon (aka The Energizer). When the official investigation into Hillary's email server began, she instructed her IT professional to delete over 30,000 emails and cloud backups of her emails older than 30 days at both Platte River Networks and Datto, Inc. The FBI has subsequently recovered the majority, if not all, of Hillary's deleted emails and are putting together a strong case against her for attempting to cover up her illegal and illicit activities.

"A conviction under RICO comes when the Department of Justice proves that the defendant has engaged in two or more examples of racketeering and that the defendant maintained an interest in, participated in or invested in a criminal enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce. There is ample evidence already in the public record that the Clinton Foundation qualifies as a criminal enterprise and there's no doubt that the FBI is privy to significantly more evidence than has already been made public."

That, combined with recent changes in betting odds, causes me to believe that Donald Trump may be running against Joe Biden this Fall, instead of Hillary Clinton. Having not been a candidate the past year, he has been unsullied by all the dirt the successful candidates have hurled at one another; and he may escape serious scrutiny long enough to be elected as the the most geriatric candidate ever to become US President (four years older than Trump, and seven years older than Reagan at his first election). Sanders, of course, is a year older, turning 75 this September.

Now, getting back to what you said: Bernie is certainly the most anti-Israel candidate in the field, followed by "Crooked" Hillary. If Biden gets the nod from Obama to head the Democrat ticket, nearly all Jews will probably vote for him in November. The first Google hit that I came up with on him is:

"Joe Biden blasts Benjamin Netanyahu, government for moving Israel in 'wrong direction'"

I'm sure many US Jews love him for statements like that; but I dare say he's out of step with Israeli Jews.
