When Joe Biden announces for president later this week, he’ll open his campaign with a “climate of the nation” message that takes on President Trump but doesn’t directly attack any of the other 2020 Democrats, advisers tell me.
What he’ll say: Biden will spell out the stakes for the country, and talk about what kind of people we’re going to be. He’ll emphasize the kind of politics he’s running against, and what kind of leadership the moment calls for.
Some key Democrats are bearish on the 76-year-old’s chances, with one of them calling it “a third Obama term, a second Hillary term — take your pick.”
Several sources say the Biden announcement, which had been planned for Wednesday by video, has now been pushed back
