Joe Biden should go hard on attracting Republican voters...touting how many "evil Muslim" villagers he's gotten killed, how he's outdeported and out caged Stephen Miller while under Obama, taken more foreign campaign and corporate donations than anyone, and put a whole generation of Black and Latino men in prison from his crime bill laws he introduced in the late 80s thru 90s.

Seeing masses of mindless MSNBC zombie Democrats blindly defend Joe Biden on social over the weekend(AKA Blue MAGA) was eye opening...not that I already thought the Democrats were dogshit horrible already. If we are to bring America together, Joe Biden and the Obama-Clinton corporate neoliberal Democrats should come together with Mitch, Lindsey, Pelosi, etc and tout how much they have in common.

LOL at all the "look guys, I was all in for Bernie...but we need to pull our big boy pants up and vote for Joe Biden otherwise....blah blah blah" people....secret tip: Bernie Sanders was never going to truly oppose the corporate Democrat neocon agenda. (Tho I wish Nina Turner was running for president)

What do I win?

Joe Biden asks Amy Klobuchar to undergo VP vetting process, report says
By Ebony BowdenMay 21, 2020 | 3:49pm | Updated

Sen. Amy Klobuchar could be Joe Biden’s surprise veep pick — the Democratic presidential nominee has asked her to undergo rigorous vetting before potentially joining his ticket, according to a new report.

The Minnesota lawmaker, who herself ran a failed White House bid, was officially approached by Biden’s camp, sources told CBS News’ Bo Erickson on Thursday, but it is unclear when they reached out or if anyone else is being groomed.

Multiple Democratic women are in the race to be Biden’s running mate — with Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also reportedly in talks with his campaign.

Hey there, now, if that shock proceeds it only means you and I are tied. The tiebreaker was who'd be nearest to whatever slogan or catchphrase they associate with the VP rollout.

Here's my final
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=42023&p=686331#p686320

and yours was a couple below that.

I think you'll win on the slogan: Let's Get Real, America.

Stacey Abrams is definitely being groomed, but I don't think she's gonna be rolled out this year.

We know from elections past that every potential VP pick gets the flea audit, so this merely confirms she's On The List. We also know, per ABC, that list is yet another all-female reboot nobody wants to watch: "the vetting committee beginning to ramp up their work to scrutinize the group of women who could potentially join him".

From The Atlantic, who are thankfully facing huge layoffs this week:

“This is a weighty responsibility, and it cannot be rushed,” said Bob Bauer, the former Obama-campaign general counsel, on Friday. He noted that campaigns need at least eight weeks to assemble a roster, let the candidate get acquainted with potential VPs, and fully vet the favorites. This year, the conventions are earlier than usual; late May marks eight weeks before they start. Really, Obama campaign vet Anita Dunn told me this week, starting now is even a “little late.”

...

John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, told The Boston Globe in a recent interview that there’s “no question” she’ll consider women for the VP spot. (The Globe, of course, wondered whether Massachusetts’ own Elizabeth Warren would be on the list.) The Washington Post reported that the Ted Cruz and John Kasich campaigns are getting names and background research together, and anonymous insiders floated a few ideas. The Trump campaign, the Post reports, is holding off on vetting, and there hasn’t been much talk of whom Bernie Sanders would select as a running mate.


The coverage universally frames vetting as a matter of precaution rather than control, of course, but that's not strictly the case. Obama's staff have been outspoken in recent months that they saw no issues when they investigated Biden, but being a sex pest with accusers in the wings can also be an asset for those who like their politicians easily controlled -- a song as old as time, innit? The world of opposition research is very strange and most of what gets discovered is actually tucked up the sleeve, often for decades, rather than leaked to the press.

Liminal: You can have that one in addition to your other pick, if I get a second pick in SAFER TOMORROW.

Yeah, just the other day I was amazed recalling all the stuff Hoover had on everyone. He had enough to destroy MLK, and clearly that's what he wanted to do (since that's what he played a role in, ultimately), but other than threatening him with it kept it in reserve.

I just cannot get over how hard they've worked to create(literally) the most unpalatable pair out of all the primary candidates. This is a work of art.

Maria Cantwell.

The Democratic Party should check and see if they can buy the moniker "Washington Generals".

Sure looks that way as what the Party does best is self-sabotage.

I say this as a voting life long registered Democratic Party member and voter (who has never had the opportunity to vote for a POTUS candidate that I favored, the closest was Obama and part of that was because I am repulsed by HRC).

Klobuchar is only acceptable to neoliberal upper class blacks, imo. I agree, LiminalOyster.

So why you say Maria Cantwell? You know anything, or just a guess?

Known sort of as a privacy advocate, opponent of the Bush surveillance programs. What passes as okay on the marquee ecological issues. Favors free trade treaties. Voted for the Iraq war, which seems to be the bedrock requirement for all of these motherfuckers ever since.

Israel
In April 2017, Cantwell co-sponsored the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S.270), which made it a federal crime, punishable by a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment,[46] for Americans to encourage or participate in boycotts against Israel and Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories if protesting actions by the Israeli government.[47]

^^^ GRRR ..I can't even speak to that, without losing my shit. Fuck the Israeli Government and what they've done to the Palestinian territories. Praise Rachel Corrie!, and others whom have seen the travesty of inhumanity done here with our fucking blessing. Both wings of Murder Inc.

As for the sell out Dems...Well:
