WaPo’s Charles Lane on Biden: ‘I Just Wouldn’t Rule Out the Possibility That He’s Not Finished’

‘It was inevitable that Democrats would have to go negative on one another in such a large field’

RUSH EXCERPT:

LANE: “I’m just saying, people have a way of surviving things that you think they can’t survive. And so we should all just be prepared for that possibility. But I do think this — what this — let — and the other point I would make is he’s still well above the rest of the field in the polls. So at least he came into this with a reservoir of good will. But it was inevitable that Democrats would have to go negative on one another in such a large field. And being the front runner, you’re the one everyone’s going to target. So I guess the hope for Biden would be that he’s still not officially candidate, but that this will somehow get processed before he is one and he’ll be in some way inoculated against it. But I just wouldn’t rule out the possibility that he’s not finished, you know, already.”
