    The sudden moves right before Super Tuesday helped propel Joe Biden back to frontrunner status and now many are projecting he will be the nominee.

    Who will he pick as VP and why ?

      That’s easy Ralph, who else would he pick but “the other Biden?”

      You know, the one he said to vote for “if you don’t like me”

      Amy Klobuchar.  She has a track record of attracting both Democratic and Republican voters.  She's from the Midwest, she is an experienced legislator, she's younger than Biden and she's female.

      That's a good question. I think maybe Amy or Pete because they are safe choices. My husband thinks he'll select Bernie because that puts two sides of the coin on the ticket. I disagree because that makes it two old white men.lol

      Klobuchar or Buttigieg. Amy brings great experience as well as she is a woman many women may feel is someone they can identify with. She is a working mom, very well educated, and her agenda is down the middle She is known for working with both parties to get things done. Mayor Pete could balance the ticket due to his young age, his agenda was attractive, he is very likable, and comes with fresh ideas. I feel either Amy or Pete would pull in the independent voters.

    Maybe Kamala or Stacey if he wants to keep it diverse. He's going to need the black vote, which he apparently has for now. (And women dont particularly like Trump.)

    Pete, if he want to have an age balance ticket. He's talked about a one term, so having a young well accepted VP as a prospect next term candidate could be a good choice.

    But there are a lot of good options.

    He will need a strong ticket.

      Either of those two would be great. They're both very smart and strong ladies.

      I like your thinking about Harris.

      I think Buttigieg would be the best bet - he can bring the younger more progressive voters to the ticket, plus his geographical asset, plus,  not being a Washington insider.

      That is the ticket I think has the best bet to beat Sanders and Trump.

        My bet is on Kamala - the actions that took place on Monday (with Amy & Pete both dropping out and endorsing) have a high-level fingerprint on them - one that could only come from former President Obama, Hillary & Bill, or possibly a combined group of Party money-people.  Joe Biden is showing signs of his age and has made repeated gaffs, which to some may be trivial, but to many people are seen as early stages of Alzheimer's  (I'm not wishing any health issue on anyone, only commenting on what I see) - if Joe somehow wins, he will step aside before 1 term is over and if he chooses Harris, that puts the Obama machine back in control of the nation, by proxy.  Just my opinion.....

          It doesn’t matter a hill of beans who he picks for VP!  If he wins the primary he is going to lose in a landslide, nobody’s VP candidate ever made a difference in any election, but I agree with you Ralph, if he had a chance of winning Harris would fit the boat.

          But he won’t, not a chance in H!

            No, it doesn't matter who Joe picks, he'll beat Trump handily in November.....if Trump's still around, of course.

              Well, this explains how WRONG you are (no surprise there).

              https://youtu.be/GpIpy7v8S1M

              Who in their right mind wants to put a senile old man into the presidency of the United States? The only reason for any Democrat to vote for Biden is the hope that if he could get elected he steps down ASAP so someone younger can step into his shoes. Of course that is the plan, a deceitful plan concocted by the party of deception, the Democrats.

              Now if you decide to reply try to stick to the points of discussion instead of simply attacking the messenger, Dick Morris or me. If that’s your tactic then it’s only confirmation that you are way wrong.

                You're a Trump supporter and can't speak for those of us on the Left. Stick to Trump's wild ramblings and you'll be fine as long as you believe him. tongue

                  Exactly as I predicted, you disparage the messenger and ignore the facts.

                  Nothing of substance anywhere in you!

                      “speak for others they do not understand.”

                      Has nothing to do with the link (which I’m sure you didn’t even watch) and so is a straw man and a diversion, another of your tactics to avoid the facts. All you ever have are tactics to deceive and of course projection laced with name calling. Typical leftist.

                    Really? Like what has Trump done that compared to Biden’s evident senility?
                    Trump doesn’t know what state his in?
                    Trump tells people to vote for the other a Trump? For senate?

                    The Biden of today doesn’t make much sense. While previously he talked endlessly about the details of policy, now he doesn’t seem to have any specifics in his repertoire. He has a vacant, muddled look around the eyes. His speech, once self-confident nearly to the point of bravado, is now hesitant and stumbling.
                    In other words, he displays many of the warning signs of senility.

                    There is a montage of Biden’s gaffes. In one clip, Biden called Fox News Host Chris Wallace “Chuck.” Another snippet showed the 77-year-old politician telling supporters “super Thursday” is around the corner. In a third clip, he botched a quote from the Declaration of Independence but attempted to recover by telling supporters “you know the thing.”

                    Watch, you’ll see. Once someone is displaying the warning signs of senility it never gets better.

                    Another warning sign of senility is unreasoned hatred and demonization of individuals exactly like elderly people afflicted with TDS calling Trump senile.

      Valeantposted 3 weeks ago

      It definitely won't be Kamala.  He won't need her to win California and she's going to be a much better Attorney General.

      It'll be someone from the midwest, either Klobuchar or Buttigieg.  But if you want to unite the party, pick Bernie.  That would appease his supporters enough to get them to the polls.

          He may not have the interest.  But putting those two together definitely unifies the party as best as possible.

            Does any Democrat really believe a ticket with 2 old men...one displaying signs of dementia and one with heart problems is a good idea?

              Valeantposted 3 weeks agoin reply to this

              They show the same thing Trump is.  His emergency trip to the hospital and his failure to remember basic things he has said, puts them all on even footing on both stances.  But I agree, a ticket with Warren as VP gives the same kind of Bernie voters an option to support the party.

                Although I disagree on your comments on Trump I accept if you believe that, it makes sense.

                I would disagree on Warren. I think she turned a great many people off with her flip flopping on issues and attempt to be the'wokest' candidate but, I'm not a Democrat so I'll take your word for it that such behavior hasn't put many of you off.

                  The only behavior that has turned off us Democrats is the daily disgusting behavior of Donald Trump.

                    See, Trump has some visible issues. He, imo, just lets it all hang out to be judged. Sadly, the left refuses to be fair. Denying context and embracing bald faced lies and refusing to accept any conclusions in investigations that do showcase the lies.

                    Politicians are adept at hiding, obfuscating, double speak, etc in order to pretend their issues don't exist. They need to be judged by the American people also but, imo, the democratic base prefers to leave their head in the sand and pretend only orangeman bad.

                    I am consistently disgusted with the Democrat establishment and their power base. I couldn't think to pretend that the status quo of Washington should be brought back to wield a stranglehold over all and continue to ignore the best interests of the American people.

                      Is decimating the agricultural industry in the best interest of the American people?  How about being the cause of death for numerous immigrant children by keeping them in inhumane conditions while they are separated from their parents in violation of international standards?  Not sure coddling autocratic leaders and bowing to Putin in Helsinki is in any American's best interests.  The rising national debt is in no one's interest.

                      Still wondering what Trump has actually done that serves anyone's interest aside from his base.

                      And here are Trump's, including the court case he is currently battling for sexually assaulting someone.  And the list does not include the removed court case of the underage girl at Epstein's house.
