Who wants to play mix and match.

Just for giggles, I thought it would be fun to take some of our candidates and match them with somebody that would make for a great ticket.
Hereís a few I came up with.
You will note that all my choices have 1male/1female. I feel thatís important this year.

Bernie/Warren
Biden/Harris
Harris/Buttigieg
Buttigieg/Abrams
Warren/Beto
Beto/Klobuchar
Klobuchar/Castro
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren

2. Inslee/Warren

 

Or the other way around.
He would make a great team with Harris but Iím not sure about both candidates being from the West Coast.

believe Warren would run as VP with anyone. She would be better to stay in the Senate.

3. One thing for sure

 

is that Warren would never run with BS. I truly believe that Biden/Harris would be a formidable ticket. When foreign countries, our allies, are begging Biden to run, what does that tell you?

8. For what it's worth,

 

every time there was a 1 male/1 female on the ticket in the general, it resulted in a loss:

2016 (Clinton/Kaine)
2008 (McCain/Palin)
1984 (Mondale/Ferraro)

But maybe 2020 is the year, particularly considering the results of 2018...

14. Beto/Klobuchar has been my favorite for a long time

 

Reversed would be fine also

Charisma and likability have to be the priority. Trump's approval rating likely won't rise too far. Somewhere in the 45 range on 538 is likely his ceiling. That's high enough to win if he can knock our nominee down to sub 50. But if our nominee is strong like Beto's 52-42 favorable rating in the 2018 Texas exit polling, Trump likely cannot pull it out.

15. Biden/Abrams

 

America had a taste of Stacey Abrams through her well-received Democratic SOTU response and via national media during her campaign.

In Georgia, we experienced her strategy, energy, brilliance and approach first-hand, and felt hope that we would win the governorship. While we didnít win governor, we did make strong gains in local races. And donít forget that we were able to flip Tom Priceís district to Lucy McBath. Abrams inspired an army of volunteers.

24. I don't care

 

if our candidate is white/black/brown/red/yellow/purple/magenta/cyan ... nor do I care about the gender, religion, sexual orientation or any other superficial characteristics.

The only criterion is who will beat Trump and do it with the least amount of doubt. All our candidates are competent and will make excellent executives.

Although, I don't think the VP choice can lift up a ticket but, it sure can drag it down like Gore/Lieberman and McCain/Palin.

30. Right now, I'd go with Biden and a current or former Democratic governor of...

 

A red or purple state. I'd look at one of the women governors first. Maybe there's a major city female mayor, too.

I just dont think we can afford to take of of the current Senators.

My goal would be for two candidates with considerable executive experience (e.g. governor, VP, mayor of major city, etc).

Of Democratic candidtes, I'm only conidering, Biden, Buttigieg, Inslee, Hickenlooper, Castro, and Harris (AG of Ca qualifies as exec experience),
