Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Just a Thought---Mike Bloomberg would make a great VP nominee.

1) he is rich as sin and if he is on the ticket he can spend as much of his own money as he wants in the general

and

2) The VP is supposed to be the one who is out there trying to kneecap the GOP nominee (Trump) while the person at the top of the ticket is supposed to be all sweetness and light. Mike is a great kneecapper.

2. Maybe...

 

But I'm really hoping for a woman on the ticket whether it's President or VP.

3. A 78-year-old would NEVER make a good VP choice

 


Unless the President is VERY young.

5. And history shows

 

that Dukakis-Bentsen didn't work out that well for us. On the other hand, I guess Obama-Biden did.

Bloomie isn't spending buttloads of money just for the silver medal.

6. Biden was only 65 when he became Obama's Veep.

7. And as I said

 

it worked out just fine. A lot of that was because neither man had ego problems. Barack Obama was humble enough to know that he need to bring some gravitas to the ticket, and Joe knew that he needed Barack's youth and energy to excite voters in a way that he's not been able to do.

4. PS. Bloomberg could do both of those things WITHOUT being VP.

 


And I don't think Bloomberg is the type of guy that settles for being second fiddle in any realm.
