Do you have a ticket to the show ?  The Democrats have a ticket... and it's Ms. Harris

She's a very safe choice, which is wise considering the stakes of this election.

Watching him speak yesterday should really put to doubt any conspiracy garbage that he has dementia.

I think that as you age, you have more moments where your brain is slower than other times.  You can pick those out and isolate them and make a candidate look bad.

But the debate will answer that. 

But it will only answer that for people who haven't injected the MAGA disinfectant (better metaphor than drinking Kool Aid)

Safe??   A woman whoís black is not a safe choice in America.  Sure, the progressives and BLM folks will like it and there wonít be criticism from those quarters, but itís not like you can lose those voters to Trump. 

The VP choice is going to be fine in most states.  In some, the Dems will lose even worse because of it.

I think not picking a woman of color would actually cost him votes.  He needs black voters to come out.  Not doing so cost them 2016.

Plus, he was under so much pressure to pick a woman of colour.  Klobuchar dropped out for that reason putting even more pressure on him, intentionally or not.

Turns out being a prosecutor doesnít appeal to some of the progressives.  But theyíre on the very fringe...  itís not any sort of mainstream view.

He was no Obama...   but the bar is set so, so low that anything other than drooling idiocy looks good.

I like his pocket square...   straight out of Mad Men!  Style points!

I doubt that anybody who was planning to vote for Biden would change their mind because he picked Harris.

Anybody who won't vote for a black VP or a woman VP or a black woman VP was probably never going to vote Democrat anyway.

Anybody who won't vote for a VP known as a tough prosecutor probably already lost interest in voting Democrat when Biden won the nomination.

Harris is a choice that won't alienate anybody who was going to vote Democrat, and she is a choice that will energize some who might have been unexcited about voting for Biden.
