But, but.... Kamala looks great and she could slaughter Pence in the debate!

doesn't biden need the battleground states/midwest states? why would he pick someone from california? just for the race factor? don't know if there is enough black people in the battleground states and midwest even if they overwhelming voted for biden because of her to overcome the vast white population of these states?...

by Anonymousreply 207/31/2020

Because she is well respected in Congress R2 and plays nice with both progressives and moderates... and VP candidates don't usually affect the vote in their home states.

and he is so far ahead he can do whatever he wants.

She doesn't come off as a schoolmarm type--which is always good

by Anonymousreply 507/31/2020

R3.. but it's the public that is voting for biden (and her) not the house or senate right?..

biden would win california no matter what, so why is he picking her someone from california?..

Oppo dump came out today that she said nice things about Scientology.

She's toast.

R7... that's right, they DON"T AFFECT the votes of their state (i.e her from california) their from.... they just might affect the votes of the states that really call the winner, the battleground and midwest...

There is literally ZERO excitement or enthusiasm for her.

This news being leaked to the press is the Biden campaign’s way of showing that Bass was seriously considered, before he ultimately chooses Kamala.

by Anonymousreply 1007/31/2020

I like her very much, but she is not my first choice.

by Anonymousreply 1107/31/2020

CNN is drooling over Bass for some reason. It is NOT going to be her.

by Anonymousreply 1207/31/2020

There is no one as fierce as Miss Kamala Devi Harris!!

She has (almost) made me forget my Miss Hillary Rodham Clinton fixation!

by Anonymousreply 1307/31/2020

Could be a leak strategy... earlier this week he talks about how respects her and his speaking notes get photographed. Going into the weekend it's all about Bass. My money now on Bass or Rice.

by Anonymousreply 1407/31/2020

^ Sorry the her in this case was Harris and my thinking is they are employing a leak strategy to move away from the expectation it's going to be her... soften the blow.

by Anonymousreply 1507/31/2020

Bass or Rice would be two of the stupidest possible picks he could make. Right up there with Sarah Palin and Dan Quayle.

by Anonymousreply 1607/31/2020

Years ago Bass worked in Cuba with a leftist group. That would kill Biden's chances in Florida, so I wouldn't get too attached to Bass.

by Anonymousreply 1707/31/2020

She's on record as praising Scientology, she's a no for me.

by Anonymousreply 1807/31/2020

She’s unvetted for the national stage.

Really?

Because Rep. Karen Bass also acted in the movie "Burn Motherfucker, Burn!"

Now THAT is badass! Bwahahaha

Sorry, it wasn't a movie.

It was a documentary.

I was secretly hoping that it was a movie, like "Foxy Brown."

Sounds like Bass has spent as much time in Cuba as she has in Washington. I don't give a damn but we will lose Florida for sure and plenty of people will not vote for her due to her support for Fidel and affectionate words about him.

by Anonymousreply 2207/31/2020

She REALLY needs to start wearing a wig.

by Anonymousreply 2307/31/2020

R18.... didn't know that about her praising the abusive insidious evil cult that is scientology!..

done with her just for that...

by Anonymousreply 2407/31/2020

I think the press is bored. She's clearly not in the top 20, much less top contender. A Castro-loving Scientology apologist. Sure she'll be the VP.
