Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Joe Biden: Republicans 'Know Better,' Will Change After Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Joe Biden told a room of donors and lobbyists on Monday that Republicans “know better” and suggested that the GOP would be open to cooperation at the end of Donald Trump’s presidency ― comments seemingly contradicted by the party’s eight years of lockstep opposition during Barack Obama’s two terms.

“Here’s the deal: we all know, and I don’t think this is hyperbole, we all know in our gut this election is the most important election we’ve ever engaged in ― and not just because I’m running,” the former vice president said at an event in Washington.

Biden, who is leading a crowded pack of Democrats hoping to unseat Trump next year, issued a terse warning to those gathered at the event, telling supporters that four years of Trump would merely be an “aberration,” but anything longer would be devastating.

“Eight years of Donald Trump will fundamentally change who we are in profound ways,” Biden said, according to a pool report. He later said change was possible in Congress, noting: “With Trump gone you’re going to begin to see things change. Because these folks know better. They know this isn’t what they’re supposed to be doing.”

Biden supported his claim by saying that 12 former Republican colleagues in the Senate expressed concerns about the party’s blockade of Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland (the Garland episode predated Trump’s presidency).
