Should Joe Biden announce his VP choice before the convention? [View all]

Would that help to unify? Would it help to move away from the divisive primaries and to focus our attention more on the task of defeating Trump and the GOP?

Would it help to push Bernie further into irrelevance? Would it help to neuter Bernie's desire and ability to to "burn it down" and bring Bernie's flock of followers into being able to accept the reality that Bernie won't be the nominee.

Or, would it backfire by "peaking" too soon? Is there an advantage in "keeping people guessing"? Are their headlines to be had with the "who will it be" guessing game and speculation? Will he be able to tease the media by being coy to get more coverage?
