Kamala Harris is getting major buzz as a possible vice presidential pick even as Democrats raised the alarm over a dramatic lack of diversity in the all-white top tier of their presidential primary contest. Just days after Harris pulled the plug on her White House campaign, former rivals Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren both name-dropped her as a potential running mate.

Qualifications? Skin color I suppose. Otherwise she would be a terrible choice.

If she is so qualified to be president, VP, SCOTUS, US attorney general on and on why didn't anyone vote for her or send her their hard earned money? She is a woman and black. That's it. Those are her qualifications. It appears that isn't enough for the voting public. I want the BEST people in these positions regardless of their sex or skin color. Why is that considered such a bizarre position?

This is more reason not to vote for Biden or Warren. Whoever the Democrat ticket turns out to be in the end, to have any chance in the General Election, that ticket is going to need the support of Barack Obama, who for all intents and purposes is the leader of the Democrat Party. There is no doubt that Obama’s candidate, who is now keeping a low profile is Deval Patrick the former very liberal Governor of Massachusetts, who is African-American, is a close friend of Obama, and is out of the same liberal Democrat “Chicago Way” political stable. So if the Democrat nominee, whoever that turns out to be wants Obama’s support, he or she will put Patrick on the Democrat ticket. At the moment that is a pretty good bet.

From her own Wikipedia page: (doesn't describe her as black or African-American which she isn't) Harris won the election as California's Attorney General in 2010 and was reelected in 2014 by a wide margin. On November 8, 2016, she defeated Loretta Sanchez in the 2016 Senate election to succeed outgoing Senator Barbara Boxer, becoming California's third female U.S. Senator, and the first of either Jamaican or Indian ancestry.[3 That's likely part of her problem, she didn't present herself as who she truly is, and what she had actually done as AG (tough sentencing). She tried to fool people into thinking she's someone other than who she is, born into an upper-income, highly educated family of Indian and Jamaican decent.

If elected, Biden would be 79 years old when he takes office. Forget about Willie Brown and Harris sleeping her way into California's Democrat controlled politics. Kamala Harris is a dishonest, unethical, noxious person. She did things as San Francisco's DA and then California's Attorney General, that were shameful and disingenuous (we saw a small example in her entirely disingenuous cross examination of Judge Kavanaugh), If Harris were a Republican, she would have been driven out of town on a rail. No knowledgeable American should want this woman anywhere near the White House, much less a heartbeat away from the presidency.

The nominee will either be Biden or Warren. Both would be pressured to choose a minority for Vice. They wouldn’t put two women on the ticket. So Warren would probably take Booker as the least risky choice. Biden will be stuck with Harris. Neither would win.

As other posters have noted, Biden would be 79 years old if he is elected. In that respect, with his mind also obviously wearing out, it would be doubtful if Biden could successfully finish one four year term as President, and certainly not two for year terms. So if Biden and the Democrats, at this point in time, were to nominate a leftist or liberal Democrat politician to be Biden’s Vice-Presidential ticket partner and that politician would have no chance to be nominated for President in his or her own rite, that should be a big red flag to stay away from any such Biden ticket, as Biden after being elected could at anytime remove himself from the presidency for age or health reasons that would make his Vice-President the President without ever being elected to that executive position.

That would be the icing on the proverbial cake. Harris is a harridan.......saw that first hand at the Kavanaugh hearing, and she has been a candidate who sways in the wind as to what she stands for. But perhaps her most egregious offense for me is her throwing any number of minority kids in jail for smoking weed, and then laughingly admitting SHE has done so while trying to curry favor on a Black talk show.

Once upon a time it was considered insulting to be hired as a minority “token”. Now it’s a necessity for the demonrats to have a token on their ticket. Maybe we should call it that. No matter who gets the nomination, there will be a minority in the VP slot. So we should call it the Token Ticket.

LONDON — Tighter government climate regulations by 2025 could wipe up to $2.3 trillion off the value of companies in industries ranging from fossil fuel producers to agriculture and car makers, an investor group warned in a report. Rules aimed at lowering carbon emissions are expected to accelerate in the coming years as countries scramble to meet obligations under the 2015 Paris climate agreement limiting global warming.

Miami - A Saudi military student reportedly condemned America as a "nation of evil" in an online manifesto prior to opening fire Friday at a US naval base, killing three people before being shot dead by police. The shooting, which took place in a classroom building at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida, left eight others wounded, including two sheriff's deputies who responded to the attack. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said the shooter was from Saudi Arabia -- the same nationality as 15 of the 19 men involved in the 9/11 attacks, some of whom attended civilian flight school in Florida.

Republicans are dramatically outspending Democrats on impeachment-related ads on Facebook and television, illustrating how fully the GOP has embraced the issue as a political winner as public opinion remains split on the House effort to remove the president. The ad blitz has worried some Democrats in swing districts who are being painted as do-nothing, pro-impeachment radicals. The Democrats have been urging party leaders for weeks to strike back with their own countermessage, to no avail.

In the spring and fall migration seasons each year, billions of birds wind through the central U.S. as they soar the skies between Latin America and Canada. For many, the journey is deadly. Recent research from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in New York estimates that a whopping 600 million birds in the U.S. die every year after crashing into tall buildings. And for traveling birds, Chicago — where a skyline of glass and steel stretches across a heavily trafficked migration route — may be the most perilous of all U.S. cities.

Bloomberg, 77, addressed the presidential prospects of Booker, 50, in a CBS interview aired Friday morning.

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings.

US officials repeatedly lied to the public about the war in Afghanistan for its 18 year duration by hiding the fact that it was unwinnable and troops were out of their depth, The Washington Post has claimed. In a lengthy article published on Monday, the Post claims that top officials knew the military's chances were slim but that they routinely hid the grave reality and made 'rosy pronouncements' about it instead. The cache of documents—dubbed the 'Pentagon Papers of Afghanistan'— includes interviews that the government carried out with senior military personnel which the newspaper obtained through a Freedom of Information request.
