You know what, if they were *all* in charge of things, they could come together in a meeting and crank out meaningful decisions in less time than it takes the current Administration staff to get our current idiot President to drop his phone and hobble to the meeting room.
 
2020-06-30 9:54:58 AM  
It's a big decision. You have to assume that, if he wins, Joe only serves one term. Making his VP choice the 2024 front runner.

So, who do you want that to be.

Gubbo: Making his VP choice the 2024 front runner.


While I like Duckworth, she was born in Thailand to a Thai mother (and an American father).  And while that kind of foreign born/non-American parentage didn't seem to matter for Ted Cruz's political ambitions, the RWNJs had a field day with Obama being born in Hawai'i, which led to some Orange Shiatgibbon being elected president.

I don't know if I have a point other than, "I see where this would lead to."

She' s a US citizen by birth. Anybody trying to detract from that is doing the birther thing all over again and it's pure racism.

My response to the right wingers on this one would be a very hearty "go fark yourselves you deplorable racist farks"

Honestly though, I think they would retread the "why won't Tammy Duckworth" stand up for America line that they tried before

Are you putting any of that past the current GOP?  She ticks off the "All the People We Hate" boxes for them: foreign, woman, minority, Democrat, and, now surprisingly, military.

I'd crawl through broken glass if he picks Duckworth, Warren, or Sanders. Which means it probably won't happen. He'll focus group pick a black woman.

I want Biden to not just announce his VP; I want him to announce that he is ready to hit the ground running and that he already has his cabinet picks lined up for every major position. Do that in contrast to Trump who still doesnt

2020-06-30 12:21:48 PM  
Whoever he picks will very likely be the first female president.

My money is on Harris, but any of those women is highly competent and qualified.

Also, no matter who it is, a bunch of people will criticize him because she's too moderate, too far left, pandering, shrill, low IQ (well just one guy will say that), too much of an insider, too unknown, much concern, concern, concern...

A fine choice in other years. I think that with an uprising against police and their enablers, she might be damaged by her stint as CA AG.

Whether that's fair or not is another matter, I just think it hurts her in 2020.
 
2020-06-30 12:22:04 PM  
I would like Duckworth. She has achievements. She's sharp. And she'd bring out the worst in Trump. Let that hang around the GOP's necks and drown them.
 
2020-06-30 12:22:06 PM  
I like Duckworth, but she has a problem with public speaking (See: Warren back when she started her political career). And though defeating Pence in a debate should be easy regardless of skills, I want someone that would make Pence cry and I don't know if Duckworth is that person.

I would even dare to say that whoever he picks as VP will be, in essence, acting PotUS during some time within his first term.

Yeah she has been clear that she has not been contacted, so while a good choice she is not in the running.

Harris is a good VP pick politically. She can be the campaigns puncher* while he plays statesman in the campaign for 2020. If she takes over my only concern would be her commitment to the justice/policing ennema this country needs.

/* Seriously, she is spectacular at this.
 
2020-06-30 12:29:47 PM  
Warren seems to be prepared for every crisis in an intelligent, responsible way. She has a plan and doesnt seem to have any issues with adopting good ideas from other people. But I dont think she is best choice for this moment in time.

I would very much enjoy seeing Harris eviscerate Pence in debates and flame all those assholes in the Senate from her "President in waiting" perch, while Biden shakes hands and make white dudes in the rust belt feel ok about themselves.

2020-06-30 12:30:07 PM  
YES!  All of those ladies form a corporation called VEEP, Inc.  Since corporations are people, VEEP, Inc. could be the Vice President.  That's a lot of brainpower and experience they could collectively bring to the ticket.  They could take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week, but all the decision of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs, but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more... I don't know, they'll have to figure that out.

He isn't picking Warren. We aren't going to give away a seat in the Senate for a VP. Especially an OLD VP that won't have legs to run on her own in 2028. I like the sound of Senate Majority Leader Warren better than VP Warren.

I like Warren, which is why she should really be put somewhere powerful and useful like Secretary of Treasury, or really any of roughly half the cabinet positions.
VP needs to go to someone else to prep them for 2024, Warren needs to be given useful powerful leverage to use, right now.

I wouldn't put any faith in what anyone says at this point. Think of it like the NFL draft where you don't believe a single word that a GM says.
