Biden Prefers Sanders’ Idealism Over Clinton’s Incrementalism

In an interview at the New York Times Joe Biden emphasized that the Democratic Party needs to put ideals forward that inspire people.

“I like the idea of saying, ‘We can do much more,’ because we can… I don’t think any Democrat’s ever won saying, ‘We can’t think that big — we ought to really downsize here because it’s not realistic,’… C’mon man, this is the Democratic Party! I’m not part of the party that says, ‘Well, we can’t do it.’ ”

This echoes the perspective he put forth in his ’87 presidential campaign, “We must rekindle the fire of idealism in this country.”
