John Kern, a 28-year-old Democrat from New Jersey who works in financial services, said he believed that Mr. Biden would be the strongest candidate to unify the party and appeal to cross-sections of voters in all regions of the country.
“Before Biden, I would have said Clinton, but I’m not really a big supporter of hers anyway,” Mr. Kern said. Referring to the killing of the American ambassador in Libya while Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state, he added, “It has nothing to do with Benghazi or all the other stuff the Republicans are trying to throw at her. But I think she’s been in Washington too long.”
Hillary Clinton arrived in Washington in January 1993 when her husband was inaugurated as President. Joe Biden arrived in Washington twenty years earlier, in 1973, when he was first sworn in as a Senator.
