88% : Biden denied it.
80% : It is just a fact of life that we have to meet it as we find it.
71% : Reade is certainly free to prosecute her claim, and Biden to defend himself against it, as they deem fit in the court of public opinion.

65% : " Opinion, April 30).
63% : We can't change the past.
59% : Elections are about the future.
56% : Prediction: We are about to see the most graphic and egregious example of hypocrisy in our lifetimes.
55% : There's a lot to recommend the Bill of Rights over the media's (and public's) obsession with sex.
54% : Joe Biden is more than 550 delegates short of the total needed for the Democratic nomination, with more than 20 states yet to vote.
51% : For me, Biden continues to be head and shoulders above the "I accept no responsibility," "do me a favor" incumbent in the White House, and this is irrespective of any consideration of substantive policies (think: children in cages) and competence.
51% : Fact: Choosing to believe Ford, Democrats pilloried Kavanaugh and tried to prevent him from taking a seat on the Supreme Court.
49% : Fact: Tara Reade accused Joe Biden of sexual assault.
48% : At least one other candidate, Bernie Sanders, is still on the state ballots, and even if Biden does reach the required delegate total, he still will not be guaranteed the nomination, since delegates are not legally bound to vote for any candidate.
47% : The future of the country will be better under Biden than under the incumbent by every measure.
45% : However, the actual choice is between Biden, Trump, and another Democrat who is not accused of sexual misconduct.
39% : Fact: Christina Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
31% : Everything else is just noise, and acknowledging this fundamental truth does not disrespect Reade or make critics of Brett Kavanaugh hypocrites.
26% : Like Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, and Kamala Harris, I'm sticking with Biden and will work for him.
26% : This means that even though Biden is currently the only active candidate, the choice of Democratic nominee is still up to the voters and the party.
26% : Yet she casts the question of whether to support Biden in the face of Tara Reade's corroborated allegations of sexual assault against him as a forced lesser-of-two-evils choice between Biden and Donald Trump, stating that, given Trump's character, "one unproven allegation against Biden is not disqualifying.
23% : They can keep their dignity by stopping the abhorrent practice of a woman carrying water for a man on a sexual harassment or assault charge by focusing on how they and their running mate can secure a better future for the country.
17% : Joan Vennochi ("Joe Biden for president -- even if accused of sexual assault?") must be aware that another candidate can still be chosen.
17% : Will Democrats behave the same way in this nearly identical case -- will they pillory Biden and try to prevent him from winning the presidency?
10% : Enough already on sexual assault ("Joe Biden for president -- even if accused of sexual assault?
9% : Meanwhile, I wish that all prospective female running mates could take this approach and abstain from being either a shield or a sword for Biden on this issue.
1% : That third choice would avoid establishing an odious new standard in Democratic politics: that future candidates may get a free pass on the first credible allegation of sexual assault.
