Make Nation Whole When Not Mentally Whole Yourself--Tough Job


Jill Biden did at the DNC what any loyal wife would be expected to do

To support her husband and his efforts to be president as a valued member of the election crew

She advanced that he would make the nation whole

In the time of great divisiveness a worthy goal

Ignoring the question of how one can accomplish that act

When a whole mental faculty Biden appears to lack

Joe is most likely an honorable and likeable guy

Even if his hands on women went sometimes awry

But this world is becoming a more dangerous place

Where nice guys finish often nowhere near in first place

Jill to her credit made Joe much more human, recounting his pain

With the life of a wife and daughter in an instant in a wreck flushed down the drain

Regardless of being an honorable and likeable guy

His judgment on issues of foreign policy is not something on which we can rely

Gates said it best--Biden has been on the wrong side of every major issue in history

We should be reluctant to give him a second chance when even the simplest thing is a major cognitive mystery

Obama worried sick about his legacy tarnished since 2016 and facing extinction in a Trump reelection

Is reported to have said to Biden before entering “Joe you don’t have to make running a selection”

Given the stress being president does to one’s health, body and mind

So surprised Jill did not consul Biden to leave ideas of a run far behind

Nice speech given by Jill as a loyal wife

Feel for her as she sees campaign and potential Oval Office degeneration strife
