TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

It is a telling reflection of our curious times that when a citizen of this tiny state has just effectively secured his party’s nomination to be president of the United States, it strangely doesn’t feel like big local news.

That is what has indeed happened over the last several days, as this son of the First State, Joe Biden – former vice president of the country, long-time US senator – has cleared the Democratic Party field, made semi-official today by the endorsement of erstwhile rival Bernie Sanders.

Of course, Biden is not the technical nominee – that will come whenever, however, the Democrats gather this summer at their nominating convention.  And of course, Biden has been the presumptive nominee since running the tables on Super Tuesday.

 

But Sanders getting out of the race and giving Joe Biden his blessing is the last real political hurdle to making the Delawarean the 2020 Democratic Party nominee.

Yes, anything could happen between now and the August convention, but the current fact on the ground is that someone who has been hunkered down in his 302-area code home for several weeks like the rest of us will be vying for the presidency against Donald Trump in November.

That’s a pretty remarkable thing to consider and recognize, COVID-19 notwithstanding.
