Buttigieg critiques Biden’s ‘judgment’ on Iraq War vote

There's a plethora of really qualified people.

"In my view, Joe Biden should have said that he intends to cooperate fully with the constitutional process of presidential impeachment and trial", Allan Lichtman, an American political historian at American University who wrote the book "The Case for Impeachment" in 2017, told Salon by email.

In April, Biden promised to be "more mindful about respecting personal space in the future" after several women said his behavior was unwanted and had made them uncomfortable.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a New Hampshire crowd Monday that he is open to the idea of choosing a Republican as his 2020 running mate.

Meanwhile, Mr Sanders' doctors said in letters released on Monday that he has fully recovered from the heart attack he suffered three months ago, and is in good health. That viewpoint has been criticized by some liberals who see it as an unacceptable embrace of the status quo and others who think Biden is naïve about trying to work with Republicans.

"There's 100,000 high-tech manufacturing jobs out there that are going unfilled. Why?"

"I can't think of one right now", he told reporters, adding that he is considering a woman for his running mate.

The former Vice President was speaking Sunday in New Hampshire when members of the audience interrupted the event.

Biden has said his vote for the Iraq War resolution was a "bad judgment", and that he "was outspoken as much as anyone at all in the Congress and the administration", in the lead up to the 2003 invasion - though a CNN fact check into Biden's claims found that Biden defending his vote well into 2003.

In 2018, Biden even gave a paid speech praising a House Republican in a competitive race, Rep. Fred Upton of MI, as "one of the finest guys I've ever worked with". This, after the Democratic candidate did not elaborate on how, if elected, his government would provide opportunities to blue-collar energy and mine workers to transition to high-paying jobs as the United States is pushed to move toward a green economy.

The Democrat's 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, made similar comments on the campaign trail, at one point vowing: "We're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business". In both May and November of this year, Biden said that the GOP would have "an epiphany" after Trump is gone and start working with Democrats again.

"Donald Trump is being impeached for abuse of power and that's where our focus should be".
