A dream ticket’: Black lawmakers pitch Biden-Harris to beat Trump
Senior members of the Congressional Black Caucus say it’s an ideal ticket if the former vice president stays atop the polls.
By HEATHER CAYGLE and JOHN BRESNAHAN 05/12/2019 06:56 AM EDT
The Congressional Black Caucus may have found an answer to its Joe Biden dilemma: Vice President Kamala Harris.

Some black lawmakers are agonizing over whether to back Biden or two members of the close-knit caucus — Sens. Harris and Cory Booker — who are also vying for the White House, according to interviews with a dozen CBC members.

But with the former vice president jumping out to a huge, if early, lead in the polls, several CBC members are warming to the idea of a Biden-Harris ticket to take on President Donald Trump.

“That would be a dream ticket for me, a dream ticket!” said Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.). “If she is not the nominee, that would be a dream ticket for this country.”

Harris is everything the 76-year-old Biden is not. The freshman senator from California is younger, a woman and a person of color. As Biden gets dinged for his bipartisan bromides, Harris is winning applause from progressives for her merciless cross-examination of Trump officials.

9. I've been Biden-Harris for a while

 

As much as it is to dream, Biden/Obama won't happen. But if it could, game over! As Kawhi called Series against Philadelphia, This would be calling President Biden/Vice President Obama.

Apologies for the sport reference:
