Joe Biden has a problem….
Up to a week ago I thought his leading contender for his Vice President pick was Minnesota US Senator Amy Klobuchar….
A Midwesterner, with time in the US Senate and no separate agenda , she would fit Biden’s style and temperament ….
That was then….
THAT is a no go….
The progressives have been trying to sell Elizabeth Warren to Biden….
That I still believe is a no go also…
Warren has her own agenda…
It’s far to the left of Biden’s…Too far…
Picking Warren would also cost Democrats a seat the US Senate that they desperately need…
Up until now?
The chemistry between the two seems to be off…
Now people put up 3 other black women for the Biden pick , but I don’t think any of them are work….
Kamala Harris was a California DA like Klobuchar and the states Attorney General…Hmmmm?
Rep. Val Demings , was a Florida police chief….
Like Klobuchar ?
Ten seconds after they would be seen as possible picks?
The media IS gonna run stories of situations they had against minorities…
StaceyAbrams is simply not qualified for the job…She has no national political experience ….
Law enforcement credentials once offered an appealing and protective sheen to a handful of the top prospects in contention to be Joe Biden’s potential running mate.
But three of those candidates — Sen. Kamala Harris, Rep. Val Demings and, most notably, Sen. Amy Klobuchar — now find their records under new scrutiny in a presidential race transformed in the wake of national outrage surrounding Monday‘s death of George Floyd under the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer.
Who then if Joe Biden & Co. need to be looking for a black woman to be Joe Biden’s Vice President pick?
How about Susan Rice?
While she lacks political elected experience ?
She has the experience of working in the highest levels of the American government having been President Obama’s National Security advisor and was Obama’s choice for Sec of State once…And it appears that Rep. Clyburn, who has influence with Biden would approve of her as a choice…
Joe Biden’s concern about the national-security impact of the coronavirus has led him to weigh picking the Obama-administration national security adviser Susan Rice as his running mate, according to several people who’ve spoken privately with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee in recent weeks.
Rice is well known in Washington, but has a much lower national profile than most of the other women being considered, and comes with few conventional political upsides. She isn’t particularly likely to be selected, people inside the campaign say (some who have spoken about her with Biden see her as a more likely pick for secretary of defense or secretary of state), and Rice has told confidants that she knows that.
But the interest Biden has expressed in Rice reflects his concerns that the ongoing economic and public-health crisis the U.S. faces may require him to pick a strong national-security hand as his running mate.
That perceived need for someone with national-security experience is also why Jim Clyburn, the South Carolina congressman and majority whip in the House who made a powerful endorsement of the former vice president, included Rice on the list of suggestions he gave Biden….
