From Yang to Buttigieg to Biden: Not a first choice but still a good one | READER COMMENTARY

Former Vice President Joe Biden arrives enters a campaign event at Texas Southern University in Houston, Monday, March 2, 2020. The president's aides said they are now preparing for a scorched-earth campaign against Mr. Biden in the coming months, even as voters on Tuesday appeared to favor a candidate who projected calm stability over upheaval and uncertainty.

At first, I was for Andrew Yang because he was the only candidate who realized that millions of jobs are going to disappear and that people who now earn a living wage will sink into poverty in the next 15 years unless we give them money just like Social Security gives money to people who are too old to earn a living.

After he dropped off the campaign trail, I was for Pete Buttigieg because, despite his relative youth, he was the smartest, calmest and most articulate person in the race, and he is clearly an honest person. That’s what I want in a president (“Super Tuesday’s twist: An historic candidacy comes to an end,” March 2).

So now, I have to pick again. I pick former Vice President Jo Biden despite all his baggage. He has the experience needed to do the job.
