Chuck could have picked his photo better, unless he’s trying to woo Steyer voters.

How tall is that guy?! Bernie’s relatively tall, but this big man makes him look small!

He’s looking to be 6’4″ or 6′ 5″. Bernie is right at 6′.

Sanders campaign: ‘Appalling’ that Biden ‘refuses to admit he was dead wrong on the Iraq War’

Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2020 presidential campaign is ramping up its attacks against Joe Biden, accusing the former senator and vice president of attempting to “rewrite history” when it comes to his voting record on the Iraq War.

“It is appalling that after 18 years Joe Biden still refuses to admit he was dead wrong on the Iraq War, the worst foreign policy blunder in modern American history,” Jeff Weaver, a senior adviser to the Sanders campaign, said in a statement late Saturday. “Unlike 23 of his Senate colleagues who got it right, Biden made explicitly clear that he was voting for war, and even after the war started, he boasted that he didn’t regret it.”

Weaver’s comments come as Sanders escalates his attacks against Biden ahead of the Iowa caucuses. Among other things, Sanders has repeatedly targeted Biden over his vote for “terrible” trade agreements and his 2002 vote to authorize military action in Iraq. Sanders voted against the measure.

Weaver issued the statement just a day after Secretary of State John Kerry offered a defense of Biden’s position on Iraq. Kerry, acting as a surrogate on Biden’s “We Know Joe” bus tour in Iowa, pushed back against Sanders’s characterizations of the Iraq War vote, claiming that “there was a difference in people who felt they needed to give a president the leverage to be able to get Saddam Hussein back to the table, without having to go to war.”
