  1. Please don’t assume anything. Get out and vote! BLUE. Young, Elderly, Brown, Black, White fellow citizens. You can check your voting status at: vote dot org. We cannot let the GOP limit our right to vote. They use gerrymandering, voter roll “cleansing” and Trump threatens to question mail-in voting and vote results. Folks are turning away from this corrupt party. But we must exercise our right to vote in order to protect it.

      J Flow – I would crawl through broken glass to vote. A change in administration is critical to my future.

    • janet gilmore I am more scared of a Democrat in the White House than COVID-19.

      @Ellen W I quit reading that made up list after credit card bankruptcy. Among his career lying and enriching himself and family, HE DRAFTED THE BILL MAKING IT HARDER TO FILE BANKRUPTCY, enabling credit card companies to deny your bankruptcy. Trump may be bad, but willfully ignoring Bidens lies and corruption is just being as stupid as Washington thinks we are

      @TRUTH SEEKER Biden will do 3 debates which is standard practice. The PANIC is in the GOP. as they fear that Trump will cost them the down ballot races. Look out for a BLUE TSUNAMI in November!

  2. I like the part where t’rump picked ultra-religious Pence to balance out the fact that he’s not Christian, which gave him full license to go full sinner and allowed all those devout “evangelicals” to tolerate a guy who breaks the ten commandments on a weekly basis.
    Looking good, Christian American values! 😅😂🤣

    Ambition is not equal to power coddling without a moral compass, aka KH. Susan Rice is the picture of leadership and grace with morals at the center, and supposedly they have great chemistry – choose her! OR Elizabeth Warren.

      @Govt Oversighter Well, we’ll see what happens…

      Yes Sleepy Joe and Pocohantis debating Trump. My moneys on Trump for sure!
      Bring Bernie Back.

      I wonder what its like to be on the casting couch with old Creepy Joe. You know that all of these ‘gender’ selected candidates, except the one he actually chooses are going to sue him for sexual harassment after these ‘interviews’

  4. Susan Rice for VP, we need strong foreign relations.
    Harris for AG, to round up these criminals.
    Warren stays in the Senate because we need to take the Senate.

    Benghazi? Just remind Republicans that their own investigation shows that they cut funding for Embassy security.

    • Leonie Romanes | August 4, 2020 at 4:58 AM | Reply

      @Jeff Gibson Obama didn’t start those wars, you may as well blame trump for all the wars happening now.

    • @André B. Thomas the Iranians were breaking the rules of the deal before Obama left office. But he sent them money anyway.

    • Same could be said of Harris. Not a good idea to remove a senator

    • @Logan McLean Four dead, in no small part due to Republicans cutting embassy funding. Meanwhile, 150,000+ are dead due to Trump downplaying the severity of the current pandemic. But Trump can’t be blame for anything that goes wrong, right?

    • André B. Thomas | August 4, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      @M Dutton …no, the Iranians were complaint…and that money was originally theirs. It was returned to them during the Obama administration.

      …and as I’ve said before, what did the Trump administration replace that treaty with that was more effective?

      Answer: Nothing.

  5. Yep, that’s her, RICE!!!

  6. I don’t give a rat as what color , male or female ! This crisis is too big , We better stop letting petty things get in a way ! We are in peril in this country .

    • saying the VP choice must be Female and Black is both Sexist and Racist ! Andrew Yang is the only clear choice and he is neither of the Identity Boxes , so sad and Corrupt

    • @Warm Violet I hate he said that too. He put himself in a box like that ! Political pressure is quiet astounding. He just should of said , I want to pick the most qualified candidate. I thought when he said that he wanted to choose a particular color, or gender, it might be problematic for some. Like you ! For me I just want to defeat that thing in the White House , we have now .

    • @Annie Warbux Well said 👏!

      @John Edward The “crime” in this country is in the Oval Office, congress and corporate America.

  7. Harris will chew up Barr and friends as AG!


  9. Whoever Joe Biden picks, I hope it’s a landslide. I was just reviewing some news segments on YouTube and a new “poll” from trump and trumpublicans popped up that went after our Real News Free Press. 20 or so questions that weren’t really questions. They were propaganda seeds to be planted in ignorant minds. Like the recent “Faith and Freedom survey” I got in the mail. Preposterous bs…. We are truly in a slide towards authoritarianism when our Free Press is under such an attack. Trumpublicans apparently took a page from trumps old playbook. He admitted the only reason he discredits the free press is so that no one will believe them when they report on his malfeasance. We need to wipe them out at the polls in November. They only care about power and money.

    Who ever he picks will be his choice good luck ladies

  11. Bernie Sanders will transition into a black woman and become VP pick.

  12. David Turner | August 3, 2020 at 5:16 PM | Reply

    Virtual Democratic convention,, this is a first.

  13. Biden should pick a mean female who will not let him sniff her hair.

    “If we had no testing, we would show very few cases.” -The President of the United States of America’s. 

    If we had no unemployment statistics, we wouldn’t have any unemployed people.
    If we didn’t have police, we would have no criminals. 
    If you don’t have a mirror, you aren’t really here.

    • If we didn’t have such a horrible excuse for a president, we’d have tens of thousands of people still alive.

  15. Joke Biden…………..♿💤
    *_I want a world where the Democrats will put somebody up there worth voting for!_*

  16. We defeated nazism
    We defeated communism
    Now most importantly we need to defeat trumpism

    Hate to be a downer, but we have to be strategically smart. Biden is old, so whoever is VP must be able to step into his shoes, seamlessly, should the need arise, and can be Presidential.

  18. I’m crossing my fingers that Warren is the next secretary of treasury.

  19. We need a Vice President that is already respected around the world , and this is Susan Rice.

  20. Susan Rice she knows how the White House and presidency operates, as well as the VPs role (having worked with VP Biden for years). Also of those on the list she’d be the most prepared to step in (Biden is 78). She is also well know and respected on the world stage by other leaders, and she’s a true professional, a serious competent highly intelligent individual.
    She well spoken, sober, mature, graceful, eloquent, non-drama (we’ve had enough with prima-Don’a trump), and sophisticated. If joe doesn’t pick her he’ll just show he’s not putting the country first
