    ^Bloomberg endorses Biden. “I’ve had the chance to work with Joe on those issues over the years, and Joe has fought for working people his whole life. Today I am glad to endorse him – and I will work to make him the next President of the United States.”

    i assumed that the bold part meant he'd still be buying ads and spending money, just now on biden.

    Warren dropped out. Have not seen where she endorsed anyone.

    Wow, I did not know that. She is in a tricky position. She is more politically aligned with Bernie, as far as I know. But if she endorses him, she will probably become persona non grata in the Democratic Party.

    That was my thought when I wondered who she would endorse. She's got to go back to the Senate now, that is of course unless someone picks her as their running mate.

    I'd feel much better about Biden if he picked Warren/Kamala/Stacy.

    Almost all political tickets are formulated to catch the widest swath of voters. Obama was seen as a far-left democrat, and putting Biden on the ticket reassured centrists and white people in general. A Sanders/Warren ticket puts to progressives together (no centrist), and they are both New Englanders. They don't even have regional diversity. Sanders would be better off choosing Julian Castro, or Kamala Harris. I think Biden would look good with Warren, and could blunt the anger of progressives if he does beat Sanders.

    Hoping hard for Kamala. I think she's the strongest choice. She'd take NO prisoners anywhere.

    If Warren went as his VP, the Bernie Bro backlash would be swift. They are already blaming Warren for not getting out before Super Tuesday. If she accepted a VP offer from Joe, they would all say this was planned, and that she helped to take down Bernie by not getting out sooner and by not coming out in support of him once she announced the end of her candidacy. Elizabeth would be skewered by the Bernie Bros.

    ^^^ I've been on the Reddit pages dedicated to Bernie the past couple days. And if there is one thing I've learned, it is that there will be no satisfying his hard-core followers. The most devoted of them have a reactionary, "the whole world is corrupt" worldview. I also want to say that even a Bernie endorsement of another candidate will not bring some of these people along. Which also makes me think that a lot of them are trolls and sh*t stirrers from either Russian or conservative web sites.

    Eh, the Bernie Bros hate her already, so what difference would it make?

    I'm pretty much a Bernie Bro and I don't hate Warren. In fact I voted for her in the primary.

    There are a lot of Bernie supporters who really like Warren, and she was their second choice. The problem I have is with the ones who say a Sanders/Warren ticket would be unstoppable. That ticket would only appeal so people who already support Sanders and would lose undecided and moderates. The fact that they believe Biden would be wiped out in the general election despite leading DJT in the polls by 8 or 9 points (even FoxNews polling) means that they aren't really dealing with objective reality.

    Ooooh, I just saw an excellent idea on Twitter! Everyone should now advocate for Elizabeth Warren to take Moscow Mitch's job. I'm all in on this.
