CHARLES LIPSON: Joe Biden’s Three Risky Choices. “That Biden was willing to leave home on short notice, fly to a swing state, and speak out about the rioting is the clearest indication yet that the election is tightening. Discussing the violence is one of three big, difficult decisions Biden faces as the campaign heats up. Each entails significant risks for a candidate who must hold together a fractious coalition and avoid major gaffes.”

Lipson has some sharp analysis, but I’m still left with one question: Big decisions?

Biden can barely read other people’s words off a teleprompter.
