Martin said that the most important thing he wants in a candidate is someone who can beat Trump. It remains to be seen whether his guess will turn out to be true or not.
"Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin wants former Vice President Joe Biden to sit on the Iron Throne of the United States.
Writing on his personal blog, Martin said that of the many "good Democrats" running for office, Joe Biden would be the best choice to take down President Trump in 2020.
"Out in the real world, I was pleased that Joe Biden finally announced his candidacy for president," wrote Martin. "There are a lot of good Democrats running, maybe too many, and I’d probably vote for any one of them over the present blot upon the Oval Office."
Martin went on to describe the list of qualities he looks for in a presidential candidate: the ability to win being number one, and the ability to actually be a good president being number two.
