However I don't like Biden. I hope he picks a VP worthy of replacing his senile old ass, and I hope he has a cabinet that will replace these morons and do what's right for the American people.

The GOP will do whatever it takes to win and the battle ground states are won on such narrow margins that it could be a lot closer than we think. Hopefully the youngster turn out and help us vote this motherfucker out.

Why do you think Biden is senile? The constant media pounding about his age that has been fed by the GOP for years and the Clinton faction of the Democratic Party for the 8 years of the Obama administration?

Joe Biden is a great retail politician. Something Obama saw, admired and implemented in his own campaigns.

If Biden asked me about VP, it’s Senator Tammy Duckworth from IL. Her biggest negative is she’s an Asian-American rather than African-American.

Couldn't agree more on Duckworth, including the one drawback (though it took me a bit to get past the last name, as I really hated Kevin Duckworth back in the day). That's not a personal drawback for me, but more the current climate and I wonder if not picking a black VP will hurt Biden. But she's such a badass.

I wouldn't be as in favor of Biden if his opponent wasnt such a threat to our military, intelligence community, foreign service community, international relations, minorities, the rule of law, and the Constitution itself. I always liked him back in the day, and thought he was an impressive VP choice. But I don't think that it is ideal electing a first term president at his age. But I also hope/expect/think that he will nominate experienced, qualified people, and listen to them. And that's all I want from a president, whatever their politics.

Biden if he wins is a one term president if he’s lucky. So whoever is his VP has to be assumed time be president in waiting. She has to be really prepared to step into the job at a moments notice and has to have the ability to rule up the base for 2024. She also has to have economic bonafides because the Biden agenda is by necessity so broad and bold. We gotta dig out of the Trump / Corona hole we’ll be suffering through but that the stimulus and payroll and unemployment relief have staved off. In order the best candidates to meet these criteria are:
Warren
Harris/Duckworth
Rice
Demmings

And I actually really like the idea of a president Demmings, but I don’t think she’ll get the pick.

The only one of those names I have strong feelings about is Kamala, so I feel pretty sure that she'll get the nod. Nothing good ever happens.

I like Sen. Duckworth as Veep pick, but yeah, I can’t see Biden going with anyone but an AA woman. Not a fan of any of the final names mentioned. Demmings has baggage from her days as head of OPD, Bass is a good legislator, but doesn’t seem nearly presidential enough, and as has been mentioned, this pick may likely end up POTUS before T1 is finished. Kamala Harris is a logical pick, despite some of the baggage from her being a prosecutor. For me personally, I’m not a fan of Harris’ and I can’t figure out why. Something in my brain keeps scratching, telling me she’s a scandal waiting to happen. More a player/politician in the same vein as a Clinton, Bill or Hillary.
But if Biden’s team can get over the campaign bad blood, she’s got to be a/the smart pick. So, although I’m still disgusted with Uncle Joe’s treatment of Anita Hill, and my gut telling me Harris might someday become a problem, I’ll spend time and money working to get them elected.


Edit: Forgot about Susan Rice, who would probably be my top choice. She’s a smart woman with the necessary experience to lead the country in the event Joe doesn’t/can’t finish T1. I’m just not sure she would excite the masses the way Sen. Harris would. Too bad, IMO.

I haven't talked to many people who find Kamala Harris likable. You don't have to learn much about her to get a "whatever it takes to get to the top" vibe from her. But then, I'm predisposed to distrust all former prosecutors. That job attracts climbers.

She definitely doesn’t shy away from confrontation. She got all up in Barr’s ass. It was great to see. Her line of questioning made it look like Barr was definitely lying. One drawback is (and it ain’t her fault) is this shithole country has a double standard for women and women of strength. Now add color....

Its hysterical to me that people talk about a VP candidate as needing to be "likeable" compared to the white supremacist in the White House who owns the worst economy since The Great Depression, is responsible for a pandemic that has killed 156,000+ Americans, locks children in cages and brags about raping women.

But, yeah.. let's make sure Biden's VP is likeable. I'm confident of a huge victory this fall. 502811600

It doesn't matter when comparing to the Trump/Pence ticket. It is a relevant consideration in comparison to the other VP candidates.

Here's why it's important (to me). I want the candidate to be black to energize the black voters who are not enthused about voting for Uncle Joe. And I want the candidate to be progressive enough to energize the Bernie Bros who are not enthused about voting for Uncle Joe. I want every damn vote for Uncle Joe in November possible. Get him out. And I hope we get our cake and can eat it, too. And that the nominee is able to influence the Administration positively in regards to black and progressive issues. But eyes firmly on the prize so we can sleep at night for a few weeks.

This election is the highest priority, but Biden is also choosing the very likely Democratic nominee for 2024. Or at the very least, is giving them a huge headstart.

Voter registration is way down all over the country. And newer data is showing republicans are pacing democrats. If you think this will be a walk, think again. People scoffing at the vote suppression tactics of the gop need to realize that they don’t need to actually disenfranchise people, they just need to make it hard enough that they give up. Every effort to neuter the black and brown vote is one step toward the goal. It’s death by a thousand cuts. Trump could still easily win this thing. So quit with your victory laps.
