Three ways Biden challenger Dean Phillips is sending Democrats valuable advice

Dean Phillips, the Minnesota congressman challenging Joe Biden for the Democratic Party’s nomination, is a grandson of the late Abigail Van Buren, the advice columnist known as “Dear Abby.” How appropriate that Phillips’ run is sending Democrats some valuable guidance: 

1. Joe Biden is too old and could lose to Donald Trump.

2. The much-lauded cohesion in the Democrat Party is not always a plus.

3. Competition, as Joe Biden likes to say, is a good thing.

Phillips is a popular moderate who says he’s running because Biden is too old to be president for another four years, and is not likely to beat Trump.   

Meanwhile, Phillips is leading the charge. The congressman’s most convincing argument for taking up the baton? He told Politico that, “I believe that the president is one of the few — one of the few — Democrats that can lose to Donald Trump, and that’s why somebody has got to compete.”  

Guess what? Phillips is probably right.
