    If nothing else, having an assertive black woman attack will cause Trump and Pence to have their heads explode.

    It’s also going to shine a brighter light on the racist cockroaches in the GOP who undoubtedly will go full throated racist when she does it.

    I actually expect Nikki Haley to replace Pence the day after this is announced. Pence is worthless since he comes from a red state and doesn't bring any evangelicals.

    Picking Harris gives her a huge inside track to be the nom in ‘24. If she wins we won’t have a new leader until ‘32. However, if it’s Rice or Bass it’s possible neither run at all. That sets us up for a primary likely to be dominated by Newsom or Cuomo.

    To me, it should be a no-brainer to bypass Harris and force her to compete w/o any built-in advantage in ‘24. The fact that most posters here would prob agree she would stand no chance w/o the VP advantage should be a huge red flag. Why should we hitch our wagon to her again?

    naming Haley won't move voters and such a move would make Trump look terribly desperate for switching plainly for optics.

    Trump people have used the argument that changing leadership in an emergency would only make the pandemic worse, so it is certainly possible they can the head of the pandemic task force.

    in this scenario do pence and his people just go quietly? I’d imagine that pence wouldn’t want this and he has enough dirt to bury trump. This isn’t Brad paracale who is a nobody without trump. I think a normal politician in trouble like trump could do this but I just don’t see the upside for pence falling on the sword.

    The only upside to an empty husk with no convictions like Kamala is that populist postions like M4A, CJ/Weed reform etc. are only going to be more popular in 4 years when almost nothing gets done about them so she will be forced to embrace them if she wants to be POTUS

    Gotta love these people, a strong 25k votes

    "Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is violating the constitutional rights of the constituents of the state of Wisconsin and is damaging the economic livelihood of people who work for companies he deems “non-essential.” He attempted to usurp the laws of the state by delaying the spring primary election after repeatedly stating he had no authority to do so. In addition, he has no plan to reopen the economy and is talking about delaying the reopening until at least June despite data showing the impact of Covid-19 is dramatically less than models originally projected. He is inconsiderate to the economic hardships faced by his constituents, particularly those who work in food service, restaurants and other “non-essential” business.

    A recall is the established mechanism to stop mismanagement of the state governorship.

    Recall Evers now.

    This success of this petition will establish the foundation for a recall with physical signatures as required by law in Wisconsin."

    I have questions about whether firm policy positions matter as much as rhetorical ability when you’re basically picking one or the other. I think Biden and Kamala are more interested in doing what people want, as opposed to taking a stand against progressive policy.

    For that reason, Kamala would be my choice.

    I've got no idea where Susan Rice stands on any particular issue within the general democratic range of policy ideas.

    If Rice were the pick, I do think that republicans trying to attack her about Benghazi would be a massive mistake on their part. Same with the October surprise they got planned with the Durham report about Burisma. Talking about that warmed over shit amidst an out of control pandemic when people are suffering economically will only help Biden in my book.

    If Joe Biden weren't a thousand years old with a baked in belief that marijuana was the devil's lettuce, Biden could just pick Harris and put decriminalizing weed in the platform and most progressives would be happy as hell with that trade.

    Unfortunately, I feel the Biden camp thinks warren will overshadow him and provide a weak point in diamond joe’s armor. When in reality, Kamala would do worse. I do agree that Warren would do WORK in a progressive inspired democratic senate.

    Taken by itself, seems like Rice would strengthen the ticket by virtue of serving in administrations that were normal and functional. She hasn't held office before like some past VPs, but she's served in DC politics for almost 30 years.

    Warren as Senate majority leader, or AG would be better than her as Vice. Assuming Biden doesn't kick the bucket 100 days in.

    Course democracy depends on RBG holding out 6 months so yolo

    RBG kicking the bucket and Trump/Turtle getting another justice will merely prompt a Dem expansion of the SC, or some other form of limiting the damage that shit justices can do in the future

    You have more faith in them than I do. Though, at that point, they'd have to realize that anything they passed would be overruled in the court and that would force their hand.
