She didn't have a chance in hell anyway in my opinion.Klobuchar has taken herself out of contention for VP...
US Senator Amy Klobuchar withdrew from consideration as Joe Biden's potential vice president Thursday, saying the Democratic nominee should choose a woman of color as his running mate. Klobuchar, herself a former 2020 presidential hopeful, said the coast-to-coast protests that erupted in the...www.yahoo.com
What really made her star rise faster than expected was her performance during the impeachment hearing. I'd be ok with either Harris, Demings, or Rice in that order.I hadn't heard too much about Val Demings but after researching a bit.. wow, she seems like a really good pick with her experience in law enforcement and at the same time pushing for racial justice. Definitely possesses that rare passion and leadership you look for.
Susan Rice is another strong pick here. I really think the VP picked this year will be one of the most important figures for nearly the next decade -- not only from likely being the first African-American woman picked, but being the potential President after Biden as well.
Yea, I was listening to a news broadcast that was talking about his movement toward the consideration of more progressive measurers. Healthcare is one I think he needs to lean into more - maybe his internal polling is telling him that there isn't enough momentum behind it to be more openly supportive of broader measures.Yeah, i don't get the Biden aversion to any sort of drastic Medicare expansion. Maybe it's because of his work with Obama on the ACA, but now is the absolute last time in the world you'd want half-measures.

Well, they did try to scrap the ACA, and came within a single vote of pulling it off. We can thank McCain for that. So it's not like they didn't try. I shudder to think what it would be like now had that outcome been different.He really needs to full court press the healthcare issue. I’ve thought this for a long while, well before COVID. But this has made it an imperative. And I am glad to see him taking it on now.
Do not relent. The healthcare crisis we face is on a lazy GOP who had years to do something and come up with something and done zilch.
Trump already had 3 million fewer votes than Clintonas much voter suppression as can be crammed into a single election.
That's the tragedy of Trump. He stumbled backwards into the greatest opportunity ever presented an American.Trump already had 3 million fewer votes than Clinton
His support base has not expanded
But he’s stirred up his opposition bases in possibly historic levels
Voter suppression is the only way Trump stays in office
It’s why Rs are railing against vote by mail so hard
As had been said, Trump basically just had to be one of those water drinking bird toys and let his advisors do their work and he’d waltz in to a second term.
