as Potential Running Mates

Original Article

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Wednesday that he would consider former 2020 contenders Beto O’Rourke and Julián Castro as running mates or members of his Cabinet should he get the party’s nomination. “I would consider either or both of them. I’ve spoken to each of them,” Biden told the Dallas Morning News. “My plea to both of them is that they stay engaged. They are talented, talented people.” O’Rourke made headlines during the 2018 congressional elections when the former Texas congressman nearly ousted conservative Senator Ted Cruz in the deep-red state. He garnered early attention after launching his presidential bid but suspended his campaign in November

One more reason to seriously ignore Biden. I am wondering if the candidates lips ever get chapped sucking up to every Tom, Dick, and Harry diversity group?

Good grief. One more nail in his coffin. No sense at all. I would have thought he would be considering Amy Klobuchar - not that she would make a good VP [no current Dem would qualify], but she seems to be the least idiotic on the surface.

Does not crooked Joe understand that he needs do but one thing to win the crooked nomination of the crooked Democrat party - self-identify as a black Islamic transwoman? The crooked media would be forced to go along with it, and their idiot base could not resist voting for someone so totally atop the Designated Victim list. Go for it, Joe - you know it's your only chance.

You can't make this stuff up. I am always amazed that anyone would vote for any of thee democrats. They espouse dogma that should disqualify them for even running for office because most of it is unconstitutional. Where do they thing the funds come from for all these social programs? It seems that this never concerns them and that that part is just out there will take care of itself on its own accord. This is why they are half-wits.

In the unlikely event that Joe Biden is handed the Democrat nomination he is going to have to pick as his Vice-Presidential nominee whoever Barack Obama as the actual leader of the Democrat Party, and other top Democrats select for Biden. That pick is bound to be an African-American politician because the Democrat ticket will need a huge Black vote to defeat President Trump, and to do that will need Obama’s support, especially with current polls showing that about one third of prospective African-American voters are tending towards voting for Trump, because of the great US economy that has provided everyone who wants to work with a job no matter their race or ethnicity, losing that much of the Black vote would be a disaster for the Democrats, who those voter realize would put them back into the hope and change category until the Democrats again need their votes in future elections.

Thirty miles west of Cleveland along the Lake Erie shoreline sits a town named Lorain, Ohio. Famous for being the birthplace of Toni Morrison, Lorain was once a bustling steel town that drew people from all over the country for manufacturing work. Even the high school football team was named “The Steelmen.” But today, like many Rust Belt towns, Lorain shows signs of decay: ramshackle houses, vacant buildings covered in graffiti, and abandoned plants and factories — lots of them. Thanks to the exodus of manufacturing jobs in the United States under NAFTA, Lorain was struggling long before the economic crisis of 2008. In 2000, the per capita income

Rescue teams were dispatched after the dramatic snow slide hit the Alpine Meadows ski area at around 10 a.m., according to a tweet from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Officials believe there are no other victims. The incident occurred near a ski run dubbed “Subway,” and the resort remained open after the avalanche while areas around the ski run were shuttered, the sheriff’s office said, according to weather.com.

Frank Biden, a longtime real estate developer in the state, accepted the offer, and over the years, he touted his famous last name and prominent connections in Washington to help land the company a series of charter contracts from local officials in Florida to open charter schools, earning hundreds of thousands of dollars over a five-year period from the company in the process.

In a curious report on Thursday evening, the New York Times carefully averts its eyes from everything that’s interesting.

With the election year now underway, President Trump is no doubt beatable — and yet, it’s starting to feel more and more like he’ll get reelected. The obstacles to Trump winning in 2020 should not be ignored. To start, in 2016, he only beat the highly unpopular Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College by winning three key swing states by less than 1%. In 2018, all three of them, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan turned against Republicans. Trump also has historically low approval ratings and has been consistently trailing Democratic front-runner Joe Biden in general election matchups. But at the same time, there are several factors

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist. The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.
