Anonymous advisors to Joe Biden now hope on fronting off a challenge for the Democratic nomination from Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke by relegating him to the Vice Presidential slot, according to the Associated Press.
Sidelining O’Rourke as a mere Vice Presidential candidate seems to be the means by which Biden’s close supporters and advisors intend to answer the questions surrounding a man of his age pursuing the Presidency. Biden would be 77 on Election Day, surpassing Donald Trump by more than five years to become the oldest man ever to assume the Presidency.
Many had wondered if 2020 would be the election in which the Democratic Party would finally accept a transfer of power to a new generation of political figures, instead of clinging to the same establishment politicians such as Biden and incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for decades.
If Biden’s team is successful in getting their way, the legacy and longtime politician would be handed the reigns in spite of a perceived desire for new leadership. Biden began his career as a national politician all the way back in 1973 as Delaware’s U.S Senator, running several failed Presidential campaigns while serving in that role, until becoming Barack Obama’s Vice President.
A Biden-O’Rourke ticket would also mean that the Democratic Party would be nominating two white males for the Presidency in an age where conversation within the party frequently revolves around derision for that very demographic. Seeing Democrats hand off presidential nominations to two ‘white men’ would be ironic, considering that the very term itself is often used as an insult in progressive circles.
It seems that a desire to sideline ‘Beto,’ a celebrity Democratic media heartthrob, won’t go over easily with his passionate and devoted followers. A battle between the ‘White Obama’ face of the new Democratic Party and a figure associated with its legacy establishment could be looming in the upcoming Democratic Presidential primary.

Joe Biden Admits He Wasn’t “Arrested” In South Africa After Exaggerated Claims
Biden said he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela.
Joe Biden is walking back an exaggerated campaign talking point, after being questioned on his claims of being ‘arrested’ in apartheid-era South Africa trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison.
Biden all but admitted his claims of being arrested were false in an interview on CNN Friday.
He’s claimed that he was “arrested” in several South Carolina campaign speeches trying to visit the South African political leader.
“This day 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid. I had the great honor of meeting him. I had the great honor of being arrested with our UN ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see him on (Robben) Island,” Biden claimed at a Columbia campaign event earlier this month. He’s repeated the claims two times since then.
Biden admitted to CNN’s Joe Berman that he was merely stopped by customs police at the airport for a short period of time when arriving in the country with the Congressional Black Caucus for a visit in the 1970’s.
His claims of being arrested during a direct attempt to visit Mandela are equally dubious, considering he was merely stopped in the city of Soweto. Soweto is hundreds of miles away from Cape Town’s Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned for decades by the apartheid-era government.
For what it’s worth, the western political leaders such as Joe Biden who were acutely interested in South Africa during the Apartheid era of political repression have largely forgotten about the country and its declining standard of living since then.
