I have been saying that this country does not need another Clintonian candidate for the nomination. The media has decided that the best thing for the country is a spineless corporatist (Read….centrist)…this time it is Biden…..and to a lesser extent Mayor Pete.
But Biden will show his cowardice by saying that he might choose a GOPer as VP……
Joe Biden says he’s open to sharing the Democratic ticket with a Republican if he’s nominated, but there’s one problem: He can’t think of a suitable one. A woman at an event in New Hampshire on Monday told Biden that her 21-year-old son was wondering if he would consider a Republican running mate, CNN reports. “The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden said. “You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now … they’ve got to step up.”
Biden has said he would prefer a running mate “of color and/or a different gender” and hasn’t ruled out former rival Kamala Harris or current rival Elizabeth Warren. “Whoever I would pick for vice president, and there’s a lot of qualified women, there’s a lot of qualified African-Americans. There really truly are,” he said Monday. “There’s a plethora of really qualified people.” There hasn’t been a president and vice president from different parties since the Civil War, although John McCain wanted Democrat-turned-independent Joe Lieberman as his running mate in 2008, reports Reuters. Under pressure from his fellow Republicans, he chose Sarah Palin instead.
THis does nothing to help his case to be the Dem candidate to take on Trump…..he sounds like the babbling fool the president is….and do we really want another mindless toad as president?
Typical BS from a centrist……there is NOTHING courageous about Joe Biden.
Not to worry there is Mayor Pete waiting in the wings for Biden to stumble……yet another “corporate candidate”….but I do not trust this person and I am not alone…..
Hill.TV host Saagar Enjeti dismissed South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg‘s debate performance, saying the White House hopeful shouldn’t be taken seriously as a top-tier candidate in the crowded 2020 Democratic field.
“Pete Buttigieg last night asked us all to take him very seriously, and unfortunately, it was revealed that he is a fundamentally unserious candidate,” Enjeti said Friday.
“Not only from his polling with African Americans but with his dated calls for change, while not actually changing anything,” he added, pointing to Buttigieg’s campaign fundraising tactics as a prime example.
Buttigieg was a top target on Thursday’s debate stage, facing criticism over his experience and fundraising practices.
Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) had the most significant clash of the night after the Massachusetts senator made a passing remark about candidates who take big-dollar donations.
“I can’t help but feel that might have been directed at me,” Buttigieg said, before defending his fundraising practices and noting that Warren also took money from large donors before launching her presidential bid.
“My good friend Joe, and he is a good friend, he’s received contributions from 44 billionaires. Pete on the other hand, is trailing, Pete,” Sanders said from the debate stage. “You only got 39 billionaires contributing.”
The attacks come amid a renewed focus on Buttigieg, who has ascended the early state primary polls in both Iowa and New Hampshire.
