That'll put a damper on his campaign, although it is not that serious and there have been presidents with more medical issues, it raises a question again, of age.

Ageism?

Bernie needs to go to Dick Cheney's doctor. That dude is still kickin' around, which amazes me.

Re: Bernie Hospitalized
I would at this point prefer Pocahontas as president, but if VP to Bernie or Biden that would be ok.

I'll bet a number of people are making the same evaluation. It will be interesting to see the next debate -- OCT 15th -- as well as campaigns up to that date.

Enjoy

Exactly my point -- this operation is no death warrant nor a sign of infirmity, rather it is a common procedure with a high success rate for return to normal life.

As bad as it sounds, an old white dude isn't the best candidate for Dems this time around. Warren can trade barbs with the best of them, is passionate, and has a firm grasp of policy.

For VP, she needs a centrist that can attract votes in rural districts. A Boston liberal teaming up with a Vermont or Baltimore liberal isn't the best match. They do love the Bern in the midwest, but two East coast accents in one campaign might be too much.

Re: Bernie Hospitalized
I personally would be happy for Bernie to be the nominee, but then again, I would be thrilled to have Elizabeth Warren as the nominee too. The failure of Biden is not the faux scandals that the Republican party is trying to throw out, but the lack of a coherent policy., the lack of focus in communication, and the tendency to insert foot in mouth.

Re: Bernie Hospitalized

Bernie expects to be at the OCT 15th debate and fully ready to take up the rigors of grass root campaigning. This is normally the return to activity following a stent and there should be no further concern re his health.

He has of course taken advantage of the situation to plug #Medicare4All, saying he is fortunate to have good health insurance, but that there are many people who don't and who would face bankruptcy.

... but then again, I would be thrilled to have Elizabeth Warren as the nominee too. ...

I'll take Warren over the others, although I wish Tulsi were doing better -- you would think the anti-endless-war platform would attract a lot more people to her campaign.

... The failure of Biden is ...

That he is old-school DINO neoliberal like Clinton, and he has baggage.

... not the faux scandals that the Republican party is trying to throw out, ...

The typical right wing conspiracy generating machinations and the false equivalence of rumor to facts. Certainly it is a smoke screen and meanwhile Humpty Dumpty just keeps digging himself a deeper hole.

... but the lack of a coherent policy., the lack of focus in communication, and the tendency to insert foot in mouth.

There is no there there, from what I've seen. Amusing to me that the GOP/DT are wasting so much time and effort on him ... especially if he is not the nominee.

Enjoy

What the Republican tricksters don't understand is that such a revelation doesn't detract from Liz's reputation but enhances it.

Put a cougar in the White House!

Don't I know it - my husband had the same thing happen to him 7 weeks ago. He was out of the hospital in 2 days. After a couple of weeks you'd never know it, looking at him. And, good side effect - he's lost 24 lbs so far.

Why not? They don't seem to have any qualms about accusing Joe Biden of firing a prosecutor to protect his son. It seems Il Donald forgot he did that very thing when he fired James Comey.

Remember that this is Jacob Wohl, a prolific and shameless fraud. He came to national attention when he tried to bribe two women to falsely accuse Robert Mueller of sexual assault (one of them reported Wohl's sorry @$$ to the authorities). In August 2019, California issued an arrest warrant for him for securities fraud.

Wohl is not well (German pun, there). He's been going downhill ever since Christoph Waltz and Bar Refaeli (Israeli supermodel) left his phony security company, Surefire (for which he used his mother's phone number -- any 8-year-old knows you never use your mother's phone number).
