Let’s be highly objective. It happened to Republicans in a crowded field they had for president in 2015-2016. It may be warming up now for Democrats in 2019, looking ahead to 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment that caused two of his Democratic rivals for the Oval Office to pounce. Others have been more subtly cutting away at Biden, who has held a lead in public polling since his announcement. On a day when the VIX dropped mildly, and several major markets rose, but a more mixed day manufactured home tracked stocks, we’ll look at a flap that could foreshadow what will happen next week at the Democratic presidential hopefuls’ debates, and beyond that venue, on the campaign trail.

Today’s markets and stocks snapshot, at the closing bell…
Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –
Per left-of-center CNBC today:
· Democratic presidential candidates attack presidential front-runner Joe Biden a day after the former vice president said that his ability to work with a white supremacist senator in the 1970s was an example of the type of “civility” in Congress that has since disappeared.
· New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., both denounce Biden by name in a break with the practice most Democrats have followed on the trail thus far. De Blasio, whose wife is black, and Booker, who is black, frame their criticism in personal terms.
· “Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal & that whites were entitled to ‘the pursuit of dead n——,’ de Blasio writes.
· Booker writes in a statement that “frankly, I’m disappointed that he hasn’t issued an immediate apology for the pain his words are dredging up for many Americans. He should.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden has been dubbed as “Sleepy Joe” by President Donald J. Trump, and has been slammed by numerous Democrats, including Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).
But Biden came under more serious scrutiny for remarks about the late lawmakers James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia delivered at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City on Tuesday evening. Biden said that Eastland “never called me boy” and was able to work with Talmadge despite disagreements.
De Blasio wrote that “Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal & that whites were entitled to ‘the pursuit of dead n——’.” The New York City mayor included a photo of him with his wife, Chirlane McCray, and their multiracial children. It will take something significant to give De Blasio traction in a crowded field.
These two Democratic lawmakers provided an opportunity for any opponent to ‘flip the script’ on Biden, who could become a drag on a party that wants to shake it’s often sadly racist heritage.
There are several in and out of the Democratic ranks who think that his own party will ‘eat Joe Biden alive,’ because he is so gaff prone. Time will tell.
The 2020 race is well underway, and there will be more known in the run up and aftermath of the first Democratic presidential hopefuls’ debates. So far, there are reasons to think that in the next few weeks, Elizabeth Warren may be the one that continues to rise, and challenge Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders. We’ll report, so stay tuned.
