    Dems again voting against an AOC measure to block the army from using twitch to recruit. They recently tricked people by offering an xbox controller giveaway that led to a recruitment form. AOC responds by saying we need to get these old fucks tf outta here

    Ill say it again, other than replacing Trump, I want Biden elected to hopefully move some of these old asses to a cabinet post (Blazing Saddles joke) and get them replaced with young idealists.

    I listened to the Pod Save the World argument about Susan RIce, and granted they are extremely biased, I do think their argument that people that still care about Benghazi weren't voting for Biden no matter what, is a decent point. From a practical standpoint, having her tour the globe to restore international relations while Biden tries to let Warren lead issues on the homefront doesn't sound like the worst decision the democrats have made.

    I was extremely frustrated with not having Warren or Sanders as president, as I think this was a once every few decade opportunity to put a strong and talented liberal as POTUS, but I would get over Rice as an underwhelming VP sooner than I would having Biden as the nominee

    There IS logic in this.

    What I do like about Bass:

    Bass supports universal health care and was one of the founders of the Congressional Medicare for All Caucus. She has voted more than 60 times against a repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and believes that Congress should improve the landmark piece of legislation instead of trying to repeal it.

    Susan Rice would be an excellent choice for Secretary of State. Maybe Biden is planning on doing it himself, but my sense is that what he would really need from his VP is someone who can help Congress deliver legislation.

    Exactly, and at least it's not TIm fucking Kaine.

    Rice does seem like quite the intellectual, which is a new quality VPs haven't had in a while.

    As much as I want Warren to be the Veep, she’d be much more impactful as a senator or a cabinet member. I’m more in the boat that it doesn’t really matter who the VP is, except for that it gives them the inside track for the nomination in 2024. Regardless, She’d be 74 and i doubt there’s much of an appetite to nominate another old.

    The thought of Kamala being successor really sucks tho

    if Warren isn't in the cabinet, she needs to fucking start a coup against Schumer and become the majority leader.

    I have really never heard Bass talk, so unsure of her ability to be a good orator over the next 2-3 months.

    As far as things that actually matter (not Benghazi) what is the downside of Rice? I don’t really know what her politics are. Is it just that she’s too much of an establishment / friendly w the defense contractors ect?

    She isn't exciting in the terms of bringing someone outside the Obama-Biden circle (Warren, Bass, Kamala). She was in the Obama administration and generally is not a person who has expressed a huge interest in progressive policies because her positions within the Obama administration did not call for it.

    Her drawback is her appeal to Biden - she doesn’t offer anything different. She also has little (no?) domestic policy experience.

    It has to be kamala. Rice would just be a mistake. Bass has a lot of good qualities but she’s really not known. She’s the type of VP pick that you select when you have an Obama type presidential candidate. The young star who may need an older, wise voice who will be 100% loyal. I don’t think she fits what biden needs.

    I still like Warren needs to be the attorney general. We need an awakening in this country on big business and corruption and she would do work as AG.

    Or if Biden dies or his brain gets mushier the VP could be either the actual or de facto president. That's why I wanted Warren.

    Harris can play the role, swing hard at Trump/Pence and her prosecutorial background insulates Biden from the defund the police nonsense Trump is selling.

    Kamala Harris doesn't stand for anything. Biden doesn't stand for anything other than Barack Obama, so it's not the worst pairing. She could be a good attack dog for Biden.

    Susan Rice has never won political office and is attached to a long-time GOP talking point, as stupid as it may be. I see risk with not a lot of upside.

    Karen Bass is Tim Kaine-ish in terms of being an affable relative unknown. She's one of the more progressive choices and is not a lightening rod of controversy. I like that. Her ability to drum up enthusiasm or be aggressive is a big question mark.

    Warren would be my choice, followed by Booker or Castro. But two of those have already been eliminated and the third is looking more and more like a long-shot.
