    I am a Berniebro, a shameless one. But I donít think he can climb out of his hole. I donít care about Biden, I donít think that he will bring the change we need. But my deep seated hatred of all things Trump outweighs my distrust in Bidenís abilities to be a good President. Hopefully he will fill his cabinet with competent people.

    I don't have a problem with Bernie's policies because I grew up in Europe and Canada so I'm not scared of socialism/social democracy and I know it works, but I don't think that's the case for most Americans so unfortunately even with this crisis I don't see even moderate Democrats having a change of heart about that.
    I think the best thing Bernie could do now is step down and visibly and enthusiastically rally around Biden so that at least we don't have to deal with the end of the world with Trump in power.

    I'd like to think that the Bernie Bros will vote for Biden if only to vote Trump out. I mean, it's not like he's an ambitious woman politician that people hate. God forbid.

    Ok, so now that Biden is the presumptive Dem candidate, who will his promised female VP be?

    Kamala
    Liz Warren
    Amy
    That woman from Michigan

    Thoughts?? I am dying to know.

    I'd like to see Kamala as AG. Turn her loose on the criminals in the current administration.


    I think with Warren he can please progressives. Amy is younger, which is a plus but she's middle of the road like Biden so I don't know if she gets him any boost.

    I've been thinking Warren too, to bring the BernieBros in. At least I hope so. I think (again, hope) he can win, but a strong VP is a must. I like the others too, just thinking strategy.

    I'd like Kamala as VP, and Hillary as AG. Can you imagine what she'd do to the Trump administration? Amy, Elizabeth, Pete get cabinet positions. I'd say Whitmer too, but she's MY governor and I'd like to see her keep making progress here.

    I think Hillary is done, I really do. She's happy to post online but I can't imagine she would want to jump back into the spotlight of national politics after 2016.

    I'm thinking he will go with Warren but also will hopefully recognize that Harris and Buttigieg would be great for cabinet spots - that would certainly give those 2 the additional national exposure they need.

    I really hope all the Bernie fans get off their asses and vote Blue, even if Biden isn't your candidate of choice. Trump will do everything in his power to steal this election otherwise.

    I honestly don't think Hillary would accept a position, but I'd love to see him ask her just for the hell of it.

    We are marching towards the White House. Trump's rally this weekend was the best thing for me this year. I couldn't stop smiling. And the audience was so muted. He was pissed about that.

    I have really thought long and hard who the VP pick should be for Biden. And, hell, yes, it should be a black woman. But, first and foremost, we have to have someone who can take over the presidency Day One. Biden could die or become ill within the first year. This is the presidency of the U.S. and we have to have someone in that position with the experience necessary. No, it's not good enough to say any of the women being mentioned would be better than Trump. I am a fan of many of them: Demings, Bottoms, and Abrams. And Val Demings and Jerry Demings are royalty here in Central Florida. They are a powerful couple who have devoted their lives to public service. I am so impressed with Mayor Bottoms. But these women are not qualified (yet) to take over this country on Day One. I want someone who is qualified now in case something happens to Biden.

    So, for me, it's become a no-brainer. She has her issues, but she is the most qualified to step in on Day One. And with a 78-year-old, if elected, going into office, that's more important than the usual presidential election.

    I present to you the next Vice President of the United States. Watch her in action recently.

    I've been wanting Harris for VP since the beginning. I would also be ok with Val Demmings, but I think Kamala is a no brainer.

    She is pretty impressive. I thought Liz Warren was the strongest female Prez candidate, and that she could bring in the progressives. Kamala was probably second. But the consensus seems to be a woman of color, so if Biden follows that route, Kamala is definitely the strongest. She's smart as hell and she takes shit from no one.
