Ouch: After Abortion Fiasco, Obama’s Chief Campaign Strategist Wonders if Biden Can Actually Win

In case you missed it last night, 2020 democrat presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden again reversed his support for the Hyde Amendment. It's worth noting he officially supported it through his work in the Senate for more than three decades. The Hyde Amendment prevents taxpayer funding of abortion.

The move from Biden came after days of pressure from the left and direct shots on the abortion issue from other Democrat candidates.

"This underscores questions that people have had about whether he can go the distance," Axelrod said during an interview with CNN Friday morning. "Last night he flipped again. So, that was a flip-flop-flip, which is never a good thing in politics and his raises questions about his performance and his own steadiness and his campaign's performance. This was not a good...geyond the issue itself, this was not a reassuring episode for the Biden campaign."

President Obama has refused to endorse Biden, despite his service as vice president.
