another thought.If not allowed,I can delete

or the moderators can delete. This is about The VP pic for Biden and my true thoughts on this. I am mixed myself like Obama and want to make that clear first.

I want Joe to pick the best candidate that will not have bombs thrown at them with scandal after the next.It is bad enough they will take Biden through the mud.We are dealing with mobsters waiting for Rico charge. I loved all the women candidates left in the last debate. Here is my thinking.

I do think Joe should pick a woman.I also do not think she should be black just because we put him over the Super Tuesday. I look at all the racism now that has roared its ugly head. I think it came back out when Obama was elected.It has been the under belly but needed something that they perceived not normal.They always felt the whites rule over everyone else.

So I think this racism is in high gear.I do not think this culture is ready for any black anything especially after the vile evil Raciest Pig in the White house now. I just think too much power is with the wrong people and the influence will spread.Even the least lightly will be brainwashed,like ,my sister is now. So I think he should pick someone tough like Elizabeth Warren or Big Gretchen as powerhouse. I think Amy is ok but not bold enough. Kamala is great,bit again her color will be judged by the ones you least expect , So those are my thoughts and I could not find the post about his VP,:So I started a new post. If it has to be deleted,I will understand.

1. All the more reason it SHOULD be a woman of color. Tammy, Kamala or Stacy.

2. The GOP will slime whoever is chosen.

If it's not about race, it will be something else. He should select the person who is best able to both represent the ticket and step in as president should it become necessary. I don't know who that is so I don't have a strong opinion - but I don't think a PoC should be rejected just because Trump will throw racist shit at her. He'll figure out a way to trash any of the other women for other reasons.

3. Biden's apparent consideration of Amy would indicate that he's not concerned with race for VP pick.

Unfortunately, when looking at Amy, one can also infer that a bold VP choice may not even be on the table.

5. The choice doesn't have to be "bold." The important thing

is whether they are competent, trustworthy and able to work well with the top of the ticket. I don't even know what "bold" is supposed to mean - unexpected? Unusual? If those are the criteria, Sarah Palin was a bold choice, and we saw how that worked out.

4. The hate for Obama is equal to the hate they had for Hillary.

It doesn’t matter. The more ethnic or female the more the Pukes want them on the ticket.

I agree with you tho. I think Joe put himself in a corner.

I love Katie Porter. She’s up front in your face with reason, logic and just enough steel in her velvet glove.

She didn’t run against Joe in the primary so there won’t be any negativity around what was said then.

Still I think Stacey Abrams is great. Maybe Amy hasn’t the star power of some, she’s very well regarded around MN, WI, IA.

Gov Whitmer is great but needs to concentrate on MI for sometime forward.

Susan Rice has been up front lately too.

Adam Schiff, Al Franken, Swalwell, all would have been great to consider.

6. Elizabeth Warren for VP, Kamala Harris for Supreme Court

Kamala would make a fine successor to Justice Ginsburg.

7. My own preferences aside, I think Biden should not pick any Senator

who may end up ceding their seat to a Republican. i don't even know which seats would be vulnerable to that situation - that is for someone more politically savvy than I. We need the Senate. JMHO.
