(SUN-SENTINEL) – Though Joe Biden's presidential runs in 1988 and 2008 were abject failures, he's currently leading the polls.
But despite the polls, it isn't just Democratic progressives who are attacking Biden; they're joined by leftist media, civil rights activists and, of course, his Democratic opponents.

South Carolina Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn recently warned audiences on CNN to "do a little more research and see exactly how we got to where we are." And Clyburn is not the only outspoken Democrat who's attacked Biden. Many of his primary opponents also are mounting vigorous attacks, including New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, California Sen. Kamala Harris, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
