  1. As long as Biden doesn’t pick Sarah Palin, he should be OK.

      @Eyes that smile – Heart that Loves Anyone who keeps posting about Russian bots is either a 12-year-old or a low-info hillbilly. No, imbecile, not everyone who sees things differently from you is a Russian bot. I would be profoundly ashamed to agree with you, and I mean on any topic.

      @Eyes that smile – Heart that Loves Oh wow hey you figured it out. Oh shucks. I guess I can’t go spreading facts
      any more. Boo-Hoo😭

      @Eyes that smile – Heart that Loves Here’s another fun fact-
      Joe already lost by proclaiming” I will go down as the most progressive president in history”. And if  that’s not enough President Trump just received the endorsement of Law enforcement which he didn’t even have or need in 2016. And if that still doesn’t do it then Joe will be hammered in the debates if he shows up. And if he doesn’t show  then people will know he’s to weak and feeble to defend what he’s been told to believe.  Either way Joe loses. Democrats are in full panic mode and using the same old race card mixed with the new phobe
      Card which is hilarious because Biden is picking his VP based on race and gender. The Hypocrisy.
      The Democrats only shot is to cheat through fake mail in ballots. Just like fake news.

    • If Biden won’t debate Trump will you still vote for him?

  2. Sure. Black female VP will “make history” and “defeat Donald Trump”. However biggest benefit is having a person with both woman and black perspectives and experiences to help lead the country. Lucky you America!

  3. Anyone else bothered by the title? Shouldn’t it be outsizeD, not “outsize” ?

    • Not if you’re black. They don’t know how to *pronounce* have of the English language correctly, much less *write* it.

  4. I want Kampala Harris, smart, sharp. On the ball. I would vote for her for president

  5. Joe could choose “Family Matter’s” Waldo Geraldo Faldo and I would still vote for him!

  6. The way I’ve been looking at it is that yes, a good VP pick now means a lot, but possibly more importantly looking through the lens to 2024 is going to be a big consideration. Essentially they must be considering that Biden’s pick is going to be the Democratic “candidate in waiting” being groomed for president in 2024.

      @Yvonne Hennesser Stupid speculation! You must think anyone over 30 has one foot in the grave.

    • T Electronix | August 3, 2020 at 2:49 PM | Reply

      Plus by 2024 the US might, maybe, sorrrrt of be starting to pick itself up after this latest gop crash.
      There will be a lot of people suffering and angry and wanting to hit out.

      The Dem VP pick would likely be running for President in 2024 so they need someone who can command trust and respect in the face of the Fox-Sinclair wailing wall.

    • Yvonne Hennesser | August 3, 2020 at 3:27 PM | Reply

      stopthecrazyguy I’m just a realist like Biden himself, who stated the VP must be ready to take over from day one…

    • Are you that delusional? If Biden is elected, he won’t last 6 months. No way he’ll last a full term, he can’t barely talk and walk anymore. He’s not picking a VP, he’s picking a president.

    As an outsider I would suggest: Rice as VP (diplomatic experience needed for improving international relations, especially with NATO and EU) and Harris as AG for clearing the mess, which Barr has made!

  8. What a nonsense that Kamala would be too competitive? I have never heard that someone is saying that about a man.

    • True That.

    • Okkie Trooy: If you can say you have never heard a man being described as being too competitive,
      you aren’t into sports and team players or individuals concerned only about their stats and contract.

    • YES – all politicians are ambitious – as they NEED ambition to fight for the rights of the less privileged – which includes all races, religions, sexual orientations –

    • Never heard em say that about Jordan!

    • @Ben Frank I am not sure if Jordan is that ambitious. He just behaves as an elephant in the porselain cabinet (dutch expression). I guess he is ambitious to get rich himself. I have never heard him talk about anything that he would want to get accomplished for the USA. His goal seems to be attack democrats and appease Trump.

  9. Could Joe pull a surprise and pick Bernie? That would shake up the election.what he loses with the black voters,he would pick up Bernie’s loyal following.My money is on Rice or Harris.Vote in November America.

  10. Ashamed to say it but I would accept a dead frog for VP if it meant bunker moron loses. Vote blue no matter who!!

  11. “What is politics about if not ambition?” Maybe, service.

    • Definitely service. Should be, at least.
      Too many people are falling for Haines’s nice-sounding words without putting a speck of thought into what those words mean.

    • I think it was said, not in terms of personal ambition but rather the determination to provide a fair and secure society for Americans, I hope I’m right.

    • I agree. You represent the people, not your ambitions

    • Eorlund Andromeda | August 3, 2020 at 6:43 PM | Reply

      You can have both. Ones ambition is a manifestation of ones desire to serve. Ambition does not have to be self serving.

    China didn’t take our jobs, Walmart sent our jobs over there

  13. To call a woman “ambitious” is manspeak for “not feminine.” It could also cause the men to call an ambitious woman a litany of vulgar names.

  14. The problem with Harris, and the only problem, is that it would be one less strong voice in the senate. Ambition as a problem? wtf? Ambition is not a problem, corruption is

  15. Richie Tattersall | August 3, 2020 at 12:29 PM | Reply

    Why wouldn’t ANYONE running for public office NOT be ambitious?

    • Thank you that’s what I want in my Vice President I want Kamala or Tammy. I am sure they want back down to trump they’ll have him crying.. He can’t bully these two women oh yes and send in that boy don. Jr. Who says Kamala isn’t an African-American woman …watch your mouth don jr.

  16. Yeh Joe’s rude to Mika, talking over her all the time. Surprised she doesn’t tell him to shut up occasionally

    • Sabine Ekaterina Müller | August 4, 2020 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      Mike scouted Joe before this show began-she does this show to promote JOe–so she really doesn’t care if he talks mre–frankly. She say him as someone who could make it on air in this role.

    Oh I finally got it about the ambitious black Woman. It means she’s black she can’t, doesn’t deserve such a high position, so it’s better for her and everyone of she aims lower.

    Biden’s VP Pick is still Up In The Air. There is a Whole Lot Of Speculation.
