  • Joe Biden might choose a Republican as his VP running mate

    The last time I heard about this was when FDR wanted to get the republican Willkie on his ticket as a Vice President

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn...can/index.html

    Looking at Trump and all the Democratic candidates we can see that probably none of the candidates are heavily similar to the US politicians of the 1940s the 1950s and 1960s for example.. Those were the times when middle-class jobs were had in abundance and when our country was growing stronger and stronger and stronger. Come the late 80s and early 90s our country Started losing union middle-class jobs and that brought us a lot of crime , disparity high stress. I.E the crack epidemic of the 1980s and how inner cities have been Struggling with crime , misfortunes , drugs and other issues that have turned once blue-collar beautiful inner cities into desolate places.


    Of all the Republicans and Democrats of the modern times I would say Joe Biden and Tulsi Gabbard remind a little bit of the great American politicians of the past. Politicians of the past that worked for all Americans.

    Our country has not had any kind of major landmark labor bills passed recently that’s what we’re missing. There’s a lot of work to be done in the United States but there’s always hope.

      Am I correct in thinking that 'way back in the early days of the republic, the runner-up became the VP? Sounds like that could be an equitable way of deciding things. Except, now that I think about it, those in the VP's camp could be plotting against the life of the prez just so the VP would become the numero uno. I wonder if that's why they don't do that anymore...

        Does anyone actually vote for a presidential candidate based on their VP choice?

          Inthat case I'd recommend Cindy Mccain, who showed a lot of class when dealing with Carl Rove....

            Biden can not choose a Republican as Running Mate, he can ask a Republican to be his running mate . But, as no Republican would accept such an offer, the whole thing is meaningless blah blah .
            A Republican who would accept this offer, would cease to be a Republican .

              Joe is going to win over a Tonna support from southern evangelicals if he does choose a Republican as his vice presidential candidate...Man or woman that is.

              But Honestly if it’s a white southern republican man with an accent that Biden chooses ...that’s going to attract a lot of voters to Biden’s camp. Trump did a similar thing when he chose a soft-spoken man from Indiana As his running mate. I just feel had Trump chose another bombastic type of person such as himself to be vice president that would’ve turned off a lot of Republican voters. Therefore Biden needs to be careful he doesn’t choose for example some type of very aggressive environmentalist as his vice presidential candidate.

                  In a country of some 350 million there is all sorts of dynamics going on when it comes to the presidential election. Already conservative radio and TV is talking about Biden because of this

                    I will never consider Biden to be a great politician, nor even the shadow of a former great politician. In fact, he is part of the corruption in our government today, a man whose son makes a lot of money working for a foreign government and who is a major part of the impeachment circus.

                    Hardly a fitting candidate for much of anything, and tainted by his own foreign connections.

                        Yes, that was the procedure until the 12th Amendment was passed.

                            Based partly on it. Palin found her way on a ticket to attract more female and uneducated voters.

                              When one frees their body soul and mind that’s a great thing. Most Democrats could care less if the candidate is a white man black man or whatever. I think that part of the problem in this country is that people are afraid to speak their mind, some people that is but I’m thankful that most Americans are out there speaking their mind and that is the way forward.

                              Some conservative want people like you and I to Think that the Democratic Party doesn’t want to put forth certain candidates of so-called color or faith. But there’s no doubt that right now the Democratic leaders are figuring out ideas as to who to run for the vice president. And there’s a lot of dynamic going on there
