I know Castro is running more in the “VP” side of the race, but he’s actually been pretty impressive, and certainly we could use more of this:
“I actually support the legalization of marijuana…On top of that we need to go back and expunge the records of people who were imprisoned because of using marijuana.”
Jay Inslee — also impressive in the not-really-running-for-president lane — is on the same page.
If Joe Biden runs, conversely, he will be running to win, while illustrating again that Castro and Inslee are among the many candidates who would be infinitely preferable:

Anyway, appropriately enough I continue to think that as nominal frontrunners go Biden is more Jeb! than Clinton.
