Recently conservative pundit David Brooks made the interesting point that when Bono was trying to get money to fight AIDS in Africa, he went to Senator Jesse Helms (of all people!) Helms was probably for AIDS and against the African people, but the money did materialize and lives were saved. As for working with segregationists (on OTHER issues): politics is the art of the possible, and you have to deal with the other politicians that are actually there, not the ones you wish were. And as for times changing, many (though no means all) Trump voters were fearful and resentful of “changing demographics”—in other words, they were bigots. Would Biden (or anybody else) turn down the votes of bigots who were not actively parading around in their Klan hoodies? This being said, even though I know 110 is the new 90, Biden and Sanders are both past their expiration dates. They should be resources for (much) younger candidates—their views being opposed on so many issues would make listening to them both quite instructive.
