Rice, Duckworth, or Harris.

Looking at this a certain way, they are the candidates of color with the strongest preparedness.

Regular posters or Alt-right/Putin trolls, it is doubtful DL will have any influence as to whom Biden chooses.

Left of center Bernbros, SJWs, and staunch progressives, prefer Warren

Obama may prefer Rice since she worked for him a long time; he's been close to Harris; Duckworth is from his state.

Bill Clinton praised and suggested K. Bottoms. Not sure how HRC feels about Rice. They had differences stemming from the 2008 primaries.

Demings has some Florida support, and would appeal to older southern black voters and other party moderates.

Bass has California support from advocates not locked onto Harris. She apparently has good support from within the Congressional black caucus and others in the House.

And as others have already mentioned, Obama didn't choose Biden until August 23, 2008. Look it up.

by Anonymousreply 48Last Saturday at 3:11 PM

If Biden picks Bass, he will lose Florida. Period, end of story. Anti-Castro hate is a baseline cultural norm in Florida, even if you aren't Cuban. Saying anything good about Castro... ever... is almost INCONCEIVABLY taboo.

Just look at the anti-Sanders/BernieBro backlash in Florida after Sanders said something even slightly not anti-Castro. And Bass was an all-out FANGIRL of Fidel Castro.

Right now, Florida is almost Biden's to lose. All it would take is a swarm of young voters angry about Trump "banning" TikTok to tip Florida to Biden. If Biden picks Bass, winning Florida would take divine intervention.

Biden picking Bass wouldn't just cost him Florida, it would probably flip 2 or 3 Democrat-held Congressional seats to Republicans as well. Representatives like Debbie Mucarsel-Powell would be in an impossible situation... support Biden & be called a Castro-loving communist, or disavow Biden & probably lose anyway.

Biden will not pick Bass. It would be senseless political suicide. Bass has no organized supporters, and an entire large state who'd regard her as the kiss of death.

The loss of Warren's Senate seat to a Republican is overblown.

1. Yes, MA's Republican governor will probably appoint a Republican to replace her... but it's only for something like 120-180 days, until a special election for MA's voters to choose their permanent replacement gets held.

2. The governor won't appoint a Trumpist. He'll appoint a moderate Republican whom Fox would in any other scenario deride as a "RINO". Basically, the Governor will be telling MA's voters, "please give this Republican a chance to earn your love". Whether or not they do largely depends upon how that Republican behaves during the weeks leading up to the special election.

3. Whomever gets appointed will probably like being a Senator, and want to win the election for real so they can KEEP being MA's Senator. They're going to bend over backwards to appease Democrats, and for all intents and purpose will probably vote the same way Warren herself would have voted during those weeks. If Biden and the Democratic Leadership has any sanity, the focus of those first few weeks will be, "make the ACA politically unassailable going forward" (by making voters and states so dependent upon its continued existence, even the THREAT of disruption will stop any future changes not overwhelmingly supported by voters. Think: Medicare & Social Security).

4. It's almost UNHEARD of for the Republican party to support a primary challenger against an incumbent Republican. Oh... you can RUN, as a Republican, against an incumbent Republican... and the Party will blackball you for the rest of your political life unless you win both the primary AND the subsequent election. So, even if the appointed Republican votes with the Democrats 100%, the Republican Party of Massachusetts will STILL support them 100% in the election, and regard any primary challenger as an opportunistic traitor to the party.

There IS, of course, a real danger that MA's likely appointed Republican interim Senator MIGHT manage to win, and thereafter become at least a speedbump... but I think both parties are going to have serious internal divides after this election anyway. If the Senate ends up with a Democratic majority even WITH a Republican from Massachusetts, and the Democratic leadership extends an olive branch and allows "sane" Republicans to have positions that would normally be closed to non-Democrats as a reward for playing nicely, I think it'll shatter the ability of the Republican Party's leaders to maintain a united front against them... even moreso, when you consider that the Trump and non-Trump wings of the Republican Party hate each other more than the non-Trump Republicans dislike centrist Democrats.

It’s not “forgetting” black people to acknowledge that none of the black women being discussed is electable in 2024. They’re not.

Kamala did very badly in the primary considering how well known she is and how influential a state California is. She was positioned to do much better than she did. It was surprising to most how badly she did. She was a horrible, unlikable, Tracy Flick. And she is the most qualified of the black women on paper.

Hillary should have taught people, you can’t force people to vote for the nominee if they don’t want to. And there’s nothing about these women that is a compelling sell. They’re just anonymous unknowns on the national scene at this point. If Biden was twenty years younger, I’d say, sure, give them a platform. But this is not amateur night here. The President after Biden is still going to be cleaning up Trump’s mess. Why should anybody vote for some nobody when we already know they’re going to be facing cleaning up the remains of the Great Depression 2.0, facing an insurmountable deficit, and god knows what else. Nobody is going to vote for a skin color, no matter how much it is “owed” to them. Nobody is “owed” the Presidency. There is no such thing as it’s their turn. Remember 2016?

Warren is too progressive and out of step with Biden. He has said many times he wants someone he can get along with. That’s going to be a moderate whose views are similar to his own. Biden is not looking for someone who is going to argue with him on every view.

R72, black people can be “anguished” all day long until they’re blue in the face. They are only a part of the Democratic Party, not the entire party. And most people are more interested in electing somebody that can carry the load, not an affirmative action hire. The job is too important. The idea that any old person can be President because it’s just so easy should have gone out permanently with Trump. No, any old person cannot do it.

Maybe black people voted for Obama solely on his skin color, but everybody else voted for the smartest guy in the room. The problem with the women being discussed is nobody thinks they’re the smartest person in the room. In fact, the little we know about them includes dumb decisions and dumb choices.

Kamala Harris did badly because of her own poor choices. Everybody thought she’d do great and she didn’t. Nobody can save her from herself. And that was just a trial run, not even a whole campaign and she was already bombing. And in 2024 she’d be on the top of the ticket with nobody to hide behind.

None of them are as qualified as Amy Klobuchar or Warren. Harris would work if she hadn't blown up her relationship with Biden, but she did.

It's a little crazy that George Floyd's death means Biden can only pick a VP from a small pool of mostly underqualified politicians.

I'm hoping someone's got some sense and he picks Lujan-Grisham or Duckworth.

I’ll be very disappointed if he picks Harris or Bass. If he wants a Black woman, I’d rather it be Demings. I think R109 is right, however: Duckworth or Lujan-Grisham would be best.

Warren isn’t happening. Coastal liberals are so clueless how she’s perceived in the Midwest, by older voters, and moderate men. It’s actually funny, seeing supporters rave about how she’ll “unify the party and mobilize the base.” Crazy clueless.

R109, she totally did - all of last week (Politico article, speech, conference call) was a ploy by her to corner Biden into selecting her, right? Not being sarcastic: you see it too right?

I hope Biden picks a white woman just to shut the fucking mouth up of Sunny Hostin, the woman is insufferable.

I want to see Joy Reid’s wig blow off when he picks a white woman.

Biden should pick Kirsten Gillibrand.

by Anonymousreply 115Yesterday at 10:49 AM

What in the hell was the Democratic Party thinking when they froze out every single Democratic candidate because they wanted Biden, and damn them for managing to pull it off. I hope they do a far superior job of selecting his VP and cabinet members.

2 Little, 2 Late for Bass.

Toss her back into the ocean.

What in the hell is R116 thinking by characterizing Biden’s victory this way? How did the party “freeze out every single Democratic candidate”? You mean the part where they got their asses kicked by Joe Biden in South Carolina?

Biden doesn't have the strength to kick a Chihuahua puppy's ass.

Michelle is more Grisham than Lujan. Listen to her gringo Spanish at the end of this ad. Tim Kaine had a more plausible accent.

Is Bernie Sanders weaker than a Chihuahua puppy? Cause Joe kicked his ass up and down the country. He got DESTROYED in damn near every state he won in 2016. Have you forgotten this already? I mean it wasn’t that long ago.

[QUOTE] Sanders had won the Wisconsin primary in 2016 over eventual nominee Hillary Clinton. His defeat this year underscores how he's fared worse in the Midwest, compared with four years ago. Another example: Biden won every county in Michigan several weeks ago, after Sanders won that state as well in 2016.

Middle class people will never connect with Susan Rice.

I like Lujan-Grisham now.

by Anonymousreply 122Yesterday at 11:11 AM

What's ol' man Sanders been up to these past few months, anyway? One would think he'd be out and about, loud and finger waving, energy restored from sleeping through Trump's Impeachment trial and the working hours of his job, the last 30+ years.

New mansion shopping, maybe?

Tammy Baldwin is the person to consider. A midwestern Lesbian who can tear Pence to shreds would be my pick.

by Anonymousreply 124Yesterday at 11:16 AM

What Bernie is up to lately isn't the problem.

What Biden isn't doing is the real problem.

by Anonymousreply 125Yesterday at 11:37 AM

Bernie had his usual lip service about how he would “campaign for the nominee,” but he won’t unless there’s a big TV moment like a convention.

As long as he’s not actively trying to primary Biden or some state Democratic candidate, just be glad he’s not trying to undermine our party again and leave him alone.

Gosh I wish they’d conclude this. The suspense is making me stressed out lol.

I really like Rice. Admittedly, I didn't know much about her six months ago. But she's on the shows quite frequently and she seems strong, calm, and wicked smart.

I am also a fan of Duckworth. Badass.

Please not Kamala (I'm from CA and like her as AG but not as a VP or Prez).

by Anonymousreply 129a day ago

Baldwin is number 1 choice!

by Anonymousreply 130a day ago

We might not hear the pick until next week.

Lujan-Grisham is qualified. But, I could see Biden not picking her because she comes from a Latino sub-ethnic that is very different than other Latino groups in the country.
