Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

If the nominee doesn't choose one of the woman candidates as running mate, I'll be so angry that...

I'll vote for him anyway, but I definitely won't like it.

1. I think its nearly 100% chance our nominee will select a woman running mate.

 

Also, very likely she will be Latina or African American or mixed race.

2. Two men on the ticket would be a huge mistake.

 

The Con will drop Pence like a hot potato if we have two men on the ticket. He may do it anyway.

3. I think it's likely

 

to be a WOC. Harris, Abrams, or Demings would be a good choice. If it ends up being a white woman, then Warren should be considered over Klobuchar.

12. perhaps slightly more relevant with our current

 

front runners, and the age thing. Ordinarily .. VP qualifications really meant very little. We can all reel of some names ...
(Palin, Quayle, Ferraro ...)

5. Choosing A Woman For VP

 

NO! I caucused for Hillary Clinton in Kansas when I was a Kansas Voter and I mourned and still do when she lost. She would have been a very good President. This is NOT the time to pick a woman VP. Let's wait until Norm (see Doonesbury) is back.
These are not normal times. Pete Buttigieg or maybe, if he can get his mojo back, Beto (who could conceivably get Texas). There are others who would work.

6. If Biden, for example, is the nominee,

 

and he doesn't choose a woman, it won't be just the women who are angry.

In my opinion, for the Democratic Nominee not to chose a woman to be on the ticket would be the single stupidest move that he could make. It would risk handing the election to Donald Trump, and it would make the entire election cycle painful. I'm male, and I am praying that the nominee is Biden and that he chooses a woman of color to be the VP. I'd be super pissed if he did not choose a woman. I could only imagine how pissed the ladies would be.

7. Well, Tulsi gets mentioned a lot as a possible running mate for Bernie. But I don't think those

 

are the candidates you mean.

Re possible running mates for Biden:

Warren, Klobuchar and Harris are all VERY qualified. They also all hold Senate seats we need.

But of the three, Harris seems most likely, for both demographic and geographic reasons if anyone's thinking in traditional balance-the-ticket terms.

10. Still, if he turns it into a crime and punishment ticket

 

I will be extremely disappointed. That will be full on Willie Hortoncrime bill response fight individual bigotry with defense and endorsement of systemic white supremacy- yet again. Same pursuit of white racist men, as it ever was.
We have to do better than checking demographic boxes. It needs to be someone with a strong record of pursuing social equity for women and all other people who experience oppression. The congresswoman who represents my district is no better than the worst of the republicans. We have to truly do better.

Possibilities such as...

Senator Kamala Harris,

Florida Rep. Val Demings,

New Mex Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham

Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto

17. Both come from blue states

 

Wouldnít someone that help in a swing state be a better choice?

20. Who are you thinking of? Tammy Baldwin?

 

I've heard her floated because of WI being a key state, but I just don't find her to be very dynamic and there's no guarantee they help bring in any new voters in that state.

21. Not really sure

 

But neither Harris or Klobuchar make sense since they come from solid blue states.

14. Does it have to be one of the female candidates

15. Yep, same exact issue, I want a Democratic woman VP nominee or else!

 

I will hold my breath, stomp and mutter angry things to myself. After that, I will go & canvass for Florida Democrats with a clarion call to VBNMW to save our country.

18. The nominee will make the decision based upon politics

 

and who provides the best chance of winning.

I don't care about the gender, race, financial status, sexual orientation or any other attribute of the running mate as long as he/she contributes to us winning.

What we would like to see takes second place to winning.
