    This almost sounds like a spoils system. If they pick someone from one racial/ethnic group will any other racial or ethnic groups be mad? Will we ever get able just to look at a person's qualifications again:

    That is an understatement.
    Currently, their search is on for a black little person transgender that speaks Spanish.

    From a numbers perspective, I agree Harris provides nothing, no help in getting to 270. Who cares whether Biden wins California by 3 million or 4 million votes. Harris may energize the black voters, but blacks prefer Biden anyway and if Obama hits the campaign trail hard, they'll be energized. Demmings, a congresswoman from Florida, she doesn't have the pull, any congress person doesn't have the statewide pull to deliver their state. Look at Ryan, Romney's VP choice in 2012, did he deliver Wisconsin? No.

    True, Abrams hasn't been vetted nationally, she hasn't even held statewide office. But she did come within 55,000 votes of becoming Georgia's governor in 2018. She lost by a very slim 1.6 points. There is the very real possibility Abrams could bring Georgia into the Democratic column along with energizing blacks in the same way Harris might. Win Georgia, a must state for Trump, you win the election. Abrams could be a big help in getting to 270.

    Others, Klobuchar Minnesota, she would ensure Minnesota stays blue, Hillary won Minnesota by just a point over Trump in 2016. She would also help in Wisconsin and probably Michigan, the whole Midwest. Whitmer, Governor, Michigan. She would deliver Michigan and help in Wisconsin and Ohio. Choosing Whitmer could be a threefer. Baldwin, Wisconsin, not mentioned. She would deliver Wisconsin and have a good influence in Minnesota and Michigan. Being a numbers guy, these three white females make more sense if my goal is to help get Biden to 270. Although all, Harris, Abrams, Baldwin, Klobuchar, Whitmer, all bring regional balance to the ticket.

    One other I would serious look at. Senator Masto, Nevada, Hispanic. She would ensure Nevada stays blue, probably gives Biden Arizona and helps Biden in Texas along with energizing Hispanics to turn out for old Joe. Biden at the moment trails Trump in Texas by just 2 points. Masto could make those 2 points up, what a shocker if that were to happen.

    One other, although from Illinois, a very safe Democratic State. I would also consider Tammy Duckworth, military and combat vet, double amputee, half Thai and American, would have positive influences in Wisconsin and Minnesota and is one spunky senator. Well likable, a fresh young face from the Midwest, ala Obama in 2008.

    It's my understanding that Biden has promised to serve but one term. So one of his main jobs would be to groom whoever he chooses as VP for a 2024 run.

    So it's OK for black's to vote based on race but not OK for whites?

    Democrats are putting too much stock in VP which will likely cause more problems than it solves. Biden saying he only wants one term is a detriment not a bonus, but Democrats don't seem to care about that either...

    While the right wing says,"If your black step back. If you're brown step down. If you're white you're alright'!!

    It's not the right that is hung up on skin color.

    Been saying that for years. The most important thing to a Democrat about their VP is its race and gender.

    I voted for the hispanic in the primaries, but I'm very happy with how Trump turned out. Keep thinking we're all racist.

    So the democrat ticket now stands at:

    Generic old white guy and generic middle aged ethnic woman. It's like buying the store brand, only for politics.

    I presume this isn't an actual quote by a right-winger.

    It's ok to do it just not to be open about it or campaign on it. Racism and all that.

    Biden will be checking out and "exploring" Harris for VP soon. And she will welcome it, if it gets her ahead. She has proven that, no argument to be made.

    A poll conducted in Wisconsin and Michigan of registered voters had Warren as the top VP choice followed by Klobuchar, Whitmer, Harris, and Abrams.

    Among registered black voters Warren was a close second to Abrams.

    Interesting.

    I don’t think Biden will be alive in 2 years
    He has deteriorated so much the last year
    They should have gave it to Bernie
