    I'll say he makes it through 2021. Steps down in 2022. Kommuna Harris takes over. Hilarity ensues.

    We can't predict, but I wish him health and full term presidency once he is inaugurated.
    He may surprise many and complete the full 4 years.

    Only God knows how many years, months, days a person has.

    You lost. I know it's sad. But it's true.

    I see "Harris Derangement Syndrome" (just as stupid-sounding as Trump Derangement Syndrome) is in full swing.

    I'd be scared of her, too, if I was opposing her.

    Biden's a little shaky, but he'll have the best healthcare on the planet. I can only speculate, of course, but my place in the betting pool is that he finishes his term and doesn't run for reelection.

    I might be the only one, but I think that he will serve two full terms. Just my opinion.

    Here is my reasoning: People who legitimately want to run for president never stop wanting to be president. If Biden is still in reasonable condition in 2023, he will run for president again. Absent absolute disaster, parties renominate their own sitting presidents. Even during absolute disaster - Trump, for example - parties tend to renominate their own sitting presidents.

    Then the question becomes whether Biden will be in reasonably good condition in 2023. Well, we have actuarial tables:

    https://www.annuityadvantage.com/resources/life-expectancy-tables/

    From an actuarial standpoint, a man who is 78 years old in the United States can expect to live, on average, 9.43 more years. That is an average that basically includes everybody - healthy and unhealthy. By most reports, Biden is in good shape. He was a good football player in high school. He works out five times per week, etc. So I would say that the chances of Biden being in good shape in 2023 are good.

    Democrats were extremely fortunate during this election season. His previous positions on issues like the old crime bill actually helped him because he could legitimately claim to be moderate because he is moderate and has proven it. Progressives went along with him because he was vastly preferable to any alternative and has also proven that he is pragmatic and can and will change to keep the progressive/moderate coalition together. Progressives also went along with Biden because they were very clearly beaten by moderates during the primary. Progressives might have some out-there ideas, but they do not ignore actual reality like some people these days.

    Four years is a long time, but I would think that Biden will still be perfectly placed for 2024. In fact, he will also have the advantages of incumbency.

    So, if I were betting right now, I would put the money on Biden winning a second term and serving eight full years in office.

    Silly question... 4 years minimum. Someone said that he's committed to not running again, which is problematic. I hope they find someone good and not anoint Harris.

    Are you saying I lost? I am very open about the fact that I wanted Sleepy Joe and Kommuna to get elected. If you mean I lost in the sense that decent people ultimately lose in this process, yes, I agree.

    I think there WILL be a lot of people who will get all worked up about Harris, but it cannot possibly rise to the numbers who suffer from TDS. I feel Big Media and Big Tech are THE major drivers of the anxiety levels Leftists have allowed themselves to fall victim to. Those institutions won't demonize Sleepy Joe and Kommuna. That said, I rather expect to see some very violent pushes against The State in the next four years, and Big M & T will make full use of them.

    Perhaps. Dude could live to 110. If I had to guess who is more likely to have a heart attack in the next two years, Trump or Biden, I'd say Trump. Biden just sounds out of it. Four years is a long time when the jackals are circling.

    We will know if we lost or won later, if the presidency of Biden is successful and America is more secure, economy is strong or better, more people employed, healthcare is better and more afordible etc.
    A set of KPI's - Key Performance Indicators.
    Than we are all winners if the other way and the US is in worse shape, security , crime, economy, unemployment, healthcare cost, medications cost, immigration etc.
    Thank we lost.

    If his life will be harassed like Trumps was in 4 years? He may just resign.
    Dem's and left media worked very hard to remove president Trump.

    We'll have to split the pot.

    Same. If Biden runs for reelection I'll be mild surprised. If Trump is still in good enough shape to try to pull a Grover Cleveland I'll be astonished.

    I hope Biden will serve his 4 years like foreseen.
    If Kamala Harris steps in, that will be an amazing milestone: she will be the first female president of the United States. I would love to see that happen.

    Fortunately it worked.
    I was so afraid on election day when Biden gave his speech in Delaware. For a minute it seemed like he was going to lose against Trump.
    Fortunately the odds were in his favor.
    I won't miss Trump.

    I have so much admiration for president Biden.
    He lost two of his children. The worst a parent can have happen to them in a human being's life.
    He lost his first wife.
    He saw his son battle a brain tumor that eventually killed him.
    The car crash where his wife and little daughter were killed and his other two children injured severely.
    His son Hunter who battled a drug addiction.
    Biden is such a strong person.
    There is no way that a person as strong as Biden won't be a good and comprehensive president who stands by his people.
    I think America has an amazing asset with president Biden.
    You guys will finally reconcile with Iran, the Middle East will stabilize again, heavy taxes on European import will be lowered again, hopefully masks will be mandatory by legislation and everyone will prosper.
    Go Biden, you can do it!

    Wow, you sound like a terrified North Korean talking about Kim Jong-un.

    Biden will, on balance, be less crappy than Trump. Expecting more is foolish.

    I just feel a lot of admiration for Biden because he still finds the will power to go on despite what happened to him.
    So many people I know who lost a child have no zest for life anymore. He lost two children and his wife and he still manages to bring up so much joy for life and still has so many plans.
    I don't know, I find that so admirable.

    Oh, I think we can expect a lot more...compared to Trump. I expect a return to the days of Republicans in the Senate obstructing Obama. Difficult, but at least the Executive Branch wasn't corrupted.
