Biden readies plan to finish off Bernie (Sunday debate - 8pm on CNN)

Joe Biden has long complained about the crowded debate stage and a restrictive format that doesn’t allow enough time for candidates to speak.

Now, in his one-on-one debate Sunday with Bernie Sanders, he finally gets the debate terms he wanted - and an opportunity to convince Democrats the race is effectively over.

Expectations aren’t high for the former vice president after a series of mediocre debate performances during primary season. The Sanders campaign, among other Biden detractors, views the debate as a chance for him to fall flat on his face, reviving questions about the durability of his candidacy just as Biden is poised to break the race wide open with a four-state sweep in the March 17 primaries.

But in years past, Biden has thrived in the one-on-one format during vice presidential debates. His plan Sunday is to focus on his electability and how he’s in sync with the Democratic electorate after winning 15 states, according to aides.

Biden got beat by Sarah Palin in 2008, and I was totally surprised at how he handled Paul Ryan. Before that, I like Paul Ryan, especially when he schooled Obama during the Obamacare debate. However, since 2012 he’s been a weasel.

Everybody involved will assist Joe. The "moderators," the "opponent," all will be there to help Biden shine.

Yeah, that was the "old" Biden before he was senile and really "old". They were both against gay marriage....

And Biden’s greatest lines were when he had nothing cogent to say so he just laughed - ever since then, I’ve called him “Chuckles”...that tactic wouldn’t work against a Trump.
