2020 Election: Stacey Abrams would
be a great choice for Joe Biden´s
VP — but a better one for president

Independent [UK], by Madeline Ruth Somerville

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/21/2019 8:28:14 PM

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

Comments:
It´s frightening that anyone would think Abrams should be President.

Can you imagine her as Commander in Chief? Could you imagine what she would do on a day like 9-11?

She has no chance of being a running mate.

Seriously, while reading the journalist´s gushing opinion of Abrams, I thought it was actually written by The Onion.

What planet is this opinion journalist living on?

Generally, when a person is running for president, they pick a VP running mate who will compliment them. Trump is brash, so he picked Pence, who has solid conservative credentials but is very quiet and stable.

This insane cow would so overpower Biden that she would make him look like a white washed senile old coot (which he is)!!!!!

The price he would pay for picking Abrams to appease black voters would haunt him for his entire presidency if he some how managed to win!!!! She would never sit there and play second-fiddle!!!!!

FTA: "the mood of this country is that we need to nominate and elect a woman." Really? I want someone who can keep the economy that PT has given us to continue. I want someone who will secure our borders. I want someone who will protect us from our enemies. Spacey can´t even manage her fiances. She is a socialist, a racist, and a vicious mean spirited harridan who would destroy our country. Plus she is uglier than an alligator´s arm pit.

Really? The lefty media truly is clueless. What Biden is doing is pandering, pure and simple. A Stacey Abrams candidacy is pandering any way you see it. This is just identity politics, and its pathetic. Identity politics has been the theme for the 2020 Democratic party. Race, gender, etc. should not matter. All that should matter is what they would do as President, and whether or not they are honest.

The Democratic party is so far off target that they only way they can win is if the Republican party lets them win.

Bernie’s Fox News Town Hall

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) Monday evening Fox News town-hall event was the most-watched town-hall event of the 2020 campaign thus far, according to early Nielsen data. And at least four other Democratic candidates are open to participating in one of their own. According to early Nielsen data, more than 2.5 million viewers tuned in to hear Sanders, a self-described “democratic socialist,” make his case on Fox News during the 6:30pm hour, prior to primetime. That total viewership bested CNN’s Bernie Sanders town-hall event from back in February; and it doubled MSNBC’s during the same time period on Monday evening, and

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has just set the gold standard when it comes to responding to the devastating fire at Paris´ famous Notre-Dame cathedral. Speaking to a reporter for French station BFM TV, Buttigieg, who is currently the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, delivered his condolences and solidarity with the French people in perfect, fluent French. (Tweet) Loosely translated, Buttigieg´s message was, "To the people of France I would like to say that Notre-Dame Cathedral was like a gift to the human race. We share the pain but we also thank you for this gift to civilization."

London - US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday her Democratic Party must avoid the "menace" of liberal policies pushed by rising political stars if it wants to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. (Snip) But she made explicitly clear that new Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- an emerging force in US politics who is often simply referred to as AOC -- and fellow young progressives elected in 2018 represented only the margins of American society. "When we won this election, it wasn´t in districts like mine or Alexandria´s," Pelosi said in reference to the November midterms in

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads the Democratic presidential field in a new Emerson poll, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. The survey found that Sanders, who has come in second behind Biden in most polling, is leading with 29 percent. Biden, who has not yet announced a 2020 bid, is in second place with 24 percent, followed by Buttigieg at 9 percent. (Snip) Meanwhile, Kimball said, Biden has lost some support in recent weeks.

I am a lowly lawyer who has never argued before the Supreme Court, and never will. I am not a constitutional scholar, Justice Ginsburg has never heard of me, and I know that in the grand scheme of things, my opinion matters to her very little (and almost certainly not at all). Nevertheless, I hope Justice Ginsburg will forgive my presumptuousness, and will entertain this immodest, yet (I believe) very respectful, sincere, timely, and practical proposal. There is no sense ignoring the herd of elephants stomping around the room, so I’ll just say it: Justice Ginsburg is dying. This is

LEESBURG, Va. – House Democrats pushing for the release of special counsel Robert Mueller´s report on Russian election interference say they are not hearing much interest on the subject from their constituents back home. A redacted version of Mueller´s report is expected within days. In a letter March 24 summarizing Mueller´s findings, U.S. Attorney General William Barr said the special counsel had not found a conspiracy involving President Donald Trump´s campaign and the Russian government. The special counsel also did not make a determination about whether Trump´s actions during the investigation amounted to obstruction. Despite the Washington intrigue

Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat, appeared Monday evening on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” show to tout his long crusade to impeach Mr. Trump and promptly reached for the fire. “What he has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame. He’s torching the entire structure of government and the people’s respect for it.

During two separate occasions on Monday afternoon, Fox News anchors Shepard Smith and Neil Cavuto had to dump out of interviews after their guests wildly speculated and parroted conspiracy theories that the blaze that suddenly destroyed much of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was an intentionally malicious act. While anchoring breaking-news coverage of the fire, Smith interviewed witness Philippe Karsenty, the deputy mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine and a controversial right-wing media figure. Early in the call, Karsenty suggested that the Notre Dame blaze—which is currently being investigated as an accident—was a terrorist a

Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is running for president. He’s one of many who are hopping into the 2020 clown car. No, he probably won’t win the nomination. And yes, he would certainly lose against President Donald J. Trump. He’s also running on an issue that is only popular with the most insane of Democrats: gun confiscation. Swalwell has gone off the deep end with his absurd allegations that Donald Trump is an agent of the Kremlin. Yet, he’s been saying it for months. Even with the Mueller report torpedoing Democratic hopes of finding cause to impeach the president, the

Fox anchor Shepard Smith on Monday melted down when a French guest attempted to explain the ongoing attacks, violence and vandalism against French churches. Talking about the fire engulfing Notre Dame, where the cause is unknown, guest Philippe Karsenty began, “For the past years, we´ve had churches desecrated each and every week all over France.” Just seconds after his guest was introduced, Smith immediately jumped in and reprimanded, “Sir, sir, sir, we´re not going to speculate of the cause of something that we don´t know! If you have observations or you know something, we would love to hear it.” After

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called the Notre Dame Cathedral “art and architecture” in a tweet Monday, without referencing its name or significance to the Catholic religion. “Art and architecture have a unique ability to help us connect across our differences and bring people together in important ways. Thinking of the people of Paris and praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder,” she tweeted. The tweet sparked immediate criticism from those who noted that the historical Catholic cathedral was more than just “art and architecture.”

After eight years of reckless expansion of the federal workforce under Barack Obama, Donald Trump vowed to downsize the wildly growing bureaucracy of Washington. In 2016, he promised to “cut so much your head will spin.” However, during the first two years of his presidency, there has been no significant effort to reduce the bloated federal payrolls. In fact, the federal government is the largest employer in the nation. Walmart, which has a presence in communities of all shapes and sizes, is the largest private employer in the nation with 1.5 million workers. Yet the number of Americans who rely
