Biden for prez! Warren for vice! Put these two in a tippy canoe!
Trump has opened the door for Biden; Trump's lips sink republican ships; Biden seems circumspect by contrast. Remember, Biden was against the Iraq war all along--but he could always tell you...

"Did you have an illegal campfire this weekend or recently?"
