  • I'd go for Klobuchar.

    Comment


    • I'd be fine with Klobuchar or Harris.

      ironically I think Biden was fine as a VP -- the VP job of helping shepherd Executive Branch priorities through the legislature plays to his strengths of having been in the Senate, well, forever. I don't know how he'll handle the #1 job, although at least he's gotten first-hand experience with seeing someone else run the shop.

      from what i've seen of his campaign, though, i'm not particularly impressed. mediocre at organization (although of course not TERRIBLE like the Trump '16 campaign was) and has a tendency to let emotions get the better of him. he's fortunate that Trump is his opponent because if his opponent was Romney, no way Dems would have gone for this guy.

            What is accurate about a AR-14? What is accurate about not wanting about taking his rifles away? Biden is consistent he only believes in Shotguns for the commoner. He says get a shotgun! I have a 20 and a 12 gauge he says.

            • You ever been near a war? I would not keep an AK-47 at home.

              • Hopefully you, like me keep my TT-33 nearby.

                • We seem to be of one mind. Watching the Bernie Bros throw their tantrums and rapidly try to change the narrative to 'no big surprises here' or 'Look, look, the establishment!!!!" is fun, but it won't last.
                  well, looks like we get to celebrate this once more.

                      DOR since you mentioned a candidates family, how about Hunter claiming that he should not have to appear in court until after the election? https://www.foxnews.com/politics/hun...oid-deposition

                        Trump Follower: No intelligent defense of Trump is (ever) possible, so resort to Whataboutism.
                        Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

                          Unlike you I have a rational brains and don't worry about my Mosin-Nagant,British Enfield, or Arisaka Type 99 which are "rifles". So he confused 14 with 15 it isn't like you don't confuse a lot of things. Tell you what one thing I agree with him and that is magazines for more shots or don't you know how to use a bolt. They should be banned as they are not protected by the 2nd Amendment when you read exactly what it says word, for word, for word.

                            Are you equating the Trump and Biden families?
                            Really?
                            Do you really, really want to go in that direction?

                            OK, fine.

                            Made-up charges against Hunter Biden, at the behest of the White House, by a foreign government, as a means of interferring in the US political process.

                            vs.

                            The Trumps.

                            BOOM
                            Mic drop.

                            • I wonder how much the Biden campaign paid? Or was it the DNC?

I'm also aware that for all the focus on failed Presidential candidates, they don't often get the nod. However, they are high profile, so we talk about them. Would Julian Castro be a decent choice? I'm not sure he can get Texas over the line, but he could certainly help reach out to latino communities. Is Kamala Harris a contender? Any useful current or recent state governors?
                                How much of a following does Catro have in the Latino community (Biden's biggest weakness)? He dropped out of the primaries very quickly so I am skeptical about it. Might still help though.

                                Harris makes sense insofar as she is a woman and a PoC. But Biden does not need her to win California and he already has the support of the Black community it seems.
