When Joe Biden is a pallbearer and a speaker at John McCain's funeral, then he will enter the 2020 Presidential contest as the "moderate" and "centrist" candidate.
Against Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and anyone who might seek the Democratic nomination from Sanders's increasingly open left.
But endorsed by other pallbearers such as Gary Hart, Russ Feingold, Michael Bloomberg, William Cohen, Tom Ridge, and Sheldon Whitehouse.
And endorsed by other speakers such as Kelly Ayotte, Joe Lieberman, Lindsey Graham, Henry Kissinger, Barack Obama, and George W. Bush.
What a way to go.
