No left leaners allowed, only those who will further the conservative agenda.

Does anyone remember who was Michael Dukakis’ running mate? Me either.

Warren has too many strikes against her:

  1. Knows what it’s like to be poor.
  2. Has defended social security.
  3. Too intelligent.
  4. Has consistently railed against Wall Street excesses and spoken for strong regulation.
    Biden will never select her. Do you really think the owners won’t get what they want?

Lloyd Bentsen. Congressman from Texas. His most famous line being when he told Dan Quayle he was “no Jack Kennedy”

And as predicted, Elizabeth screwing Bernie’s campaign and selling out the progressives in the end achieved nothing to help her. She has outlived her usefulness and the “big club” don’t want anything to do with her anymore.

Yup, the dumb broad would be Bernie Sanders VP right now had she exited the race before Super Tuesday and endorsed him. But no, she had other intentions (although at this point I have no idea what the hell those could have been)

This may well be moot for a whole other and quite salient point: the governor of Massachusetts is a ReThug. Thus if Biden was to pick her as his running mate, and they were to get into the White House, her replacement would be picked by him. Be reminded that if Turtle McConnell is not removed from his current position as Senate Majority Leader, he has promised to continue doing his voodoo.

While I appreciate the spirit of this article, it’s not entirely correct. Both “Business Insider” and “Forbes” - two leading magazines of the business community ran articles on the fact that Elizabeth Warren has consistently polled ahead of all the other women being considered for VP. The articles even pointed out her strengths and how she would make up for Biden’s MANY weaknesses.

I don’t know either. Hell I don’t know what Bernie’s intentions have been being considering how he also in the end screwed over progressives.

Doesn’t matter who he picks, I am not voting for a rapist.

True. I would have liked to seen Bernie run as an independent instead of trying to crash the DNC party. But if that were his intention he would have done it in 2016.
Now, once again, progressives have no champion, and will spend this cycle on the outside looking in.

Well maybe it is time that instead of looking in with the usual abject horror/morbid fascination, we should try to come up with solutions outside our hopeless government.

Nobody was ever going to be stupider than Quayle but then Trump came along.

Just think…
If John McCain would have won, Sarah Palin would most likely be President right now…
And she is almost as incoherent when speaking as Joe Biden.

Uncle Joe is not likely to upset his Wall Street and Corporate Funders so his VP Nominee will not be Elizabeth Warren.

I can live with the other choices identified except Amy Klobachar.
