4. Likely not Elisabeth Warren.

She would relinquish her senate spot which is not good, be a slap to the face of African Americans who pretty much got Joe Biden where he is and i think a bit too old given that Biden is 78, he will want a much younger VP.

7. Not at all

 

First most of the time nominees donít pick a former primary candidate for the VP spot. In this case both Warren and Harris come from blue states and wonít help flip any swing states.

19. But would likely give us Florida and North Carolina. With Georgia as a distant possibility.

And Wisconsin and Michigan as low turnout in Madison and Detroit killed us in 16.


Sheís my choice. Has been since Biden got in.

13. Nowhere near perfect

 

Sheís from a solid blue state and wonít help flip a swing state. Her history as a prosecutor wonít help attract progressive voters. Plus she accused Biden of being a racist on national television. Thatís a GOP attack ad that writes itself.

17. Biden was from a solid blue state. White people that blame a black woman

for lack of criminal justice are not progressives.

And anyone that needs to be attracted to vote for Biden is not a progressive.

29. Yes he was but

 

at the time the Obama campaign was worried about Pennsylvania. Biden helped shore that up. He was also picked to reassure older white more moderate voters they feared might switch to McCain.

pick and go for someone he could work with in office .

33. True

 

He needs someone who will help attract progressives and energize the African American vote. Again, not Harris. There are other better choices, None of whom accused him of being a racist on national television. Thatís a GOP attack ad that writes himself.

Gopers are already salivating at the thought of dragging that out and turning it into something scandalous and dirty.

12. While she would be PERFECT, I doubt she will accept...

Michelle Obamaon the ricket would surely see a 30 plus state win for Democrats down ticket. At least or close to a Filibuster proof Senate, a broader majority in the House, and a huge REBUKE of Republican agendas for the foreseeable future.

A Biden/Harris ticket would accomplish that as e
well with Michelle Obama top surragette.

Klobuchar is from a solid blue state and wonít help flip a swing state. She wonít energize the African American vote or attract progressive voters. There are many other and better choices.

21. The fascination...

.... with Kamala Harris baffles me. She would be a poor choice for Biden's VP. Just a few reasons why which seems to have escaped most people.

1. She is from a solid Blue State. No help there.

2. She was barely able to garner 5% of black support during her entire campaign. Minimal help there.

3. She tried several times to discredit Joe Biden and throw him under the bus. All of those attempts failed miserably, and was a major factor in her dropping out of the race.

There are several women, including Val Demings, Gretchen Whitmer, and Susan Rice to name a few who would be much better choices than anyone who ran for the Democratic nomination, including Elizabeth Warren.

25. I'm fine with either

Really want Warren due to her policies. I know that even though Baker isnít one of the worst Republicans, his replacement wouldnít be nearly as good as Warren. But if Warren would help Biden win, it could be worth it.

I also like Demings, Whitmer, Duckworth and Baldwin.

Geez, it is late and I had Baldwin with Duckworth as a last name.

34. Yeah, I think so.

Elizabeth would make a great Secretary of the Treasury. But we may need her seat in the Senate?

Eric Holder would make a good Attorney-General if Kamala is the VP. Again.

Biden will need some very good people around him. These are not ordinary times.
