First I want to post an article questioning the former VP. I will post my thoughts in another post.

Julián Castro digs in as some Democrats express unease with his questioning of Joe Biden's memory

Castro's rivals in the Democratic presidential primary offered mixed reactions to the tense tangle between him and the former vice president...

...   In sharply questioning rival Joe Biden's memory, the Democratic presidential candidate from Texas brought to the fore simmering concerns about the 76-year-old former vice president's fitness for office. ...

My thoughts, opinions, and concerns:

Like many Boomers and other older Americans I have many memories of his political activities.

I didn't know of his civil rights activism until 1968 when MLK was murdered when I was pregnant with my daughter. I read that he had protested to desegregate stores, restaurants, and theaters beginning at age 17.  Like many young Americans we did his small part.

He had written letters to his congressman and senators encouraging them to vote for the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, and Medicare years before he was old enough to vote at age 21.

After he was elected he was often on TV supporting equal rights for all.

I have warm feelings for Joe Biden because of his action before and while holding public office. No one is perfect, but I think he has done good work for We The People.

I have not yet decided who I will vote for in next week's primary. On issues I agree with Senator Sanders. But am aware that for him to achieve his goals we would have to elect a majority in the Senate and the House. 

Being just a couple years younger I know I would not have the stamina to run for office, much less to run the country. I am praying we elect a person who tells We The People the truth, is polite, listens to security and all briefings, and learns as much from all viewpoints before making a decision.

I agree with you on all of this. 

I will vote for Biden if he's the candidate but I hope he surprises us with a VP announcement.
