Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Fri Feb 21, 2020, 04:23 PM

 

The candidate that wins the most delgates, even if a plurality, should be on the ticket.

That does not mean he/she should be at the top of the ticket.

Unless they win the number needed outright.

But, if there is a brokered convention, then the person that can negotiate a majority should be at the top of the ticket and the candidate with the initial plurality should be the VP nominee, in my opinion.

I think that is a fair and democratic way to handle it.

2. No...

 

The person at the top of the ticket gets to choose their running mate.

4. Not if the person with a plurality but not a majority has had a heart attack and won't release

 

medical records.

The tragic loss of a president could trigger a heart attack in someone with heart problems.

And then the Speaker of the House would be president.

5. I see the appeal from a unity standpoint, but...

 

...could you really imagine Sanders *wanting* to be VP under Bloomberg, for example?

7. That was Plouffe and Axelrod's argument 12 years ago

 

Reid too. But these are different times.
