Am I the only one who thinks this is a dumb idea?
Something tells me some of the same people who worked for Hillary must be on Team Biden.
Or do all Democrat advisors think black people are this gullible?
“Well, we can’t say he carries hot sauce in his purse since he’s a man and doesn’t carry a purse. So how do we get Joe to appeal to the black voters? I know! Let’s have him carry around Stacey Abrams instead!”
Come on, people! The Identity Politics-obsessed Left accused Lynne Patton of being a “token” because Donald Trump employed her. How do you think they’ll react to this?
“Sure, folks. I’m an old white guy, but look! I picked this black woman to be my running mate! And that’s a big f*cking deal!”
But I think there’s a bigger problem with Team Biden floating Abrams — or anyone for that matter — as a running mate ten months before the Iowa caucus. Namely, the message it sends to primary voters.
Don’t tell me this doesn’t come off as over-confidence.
In other words, it’s 2016 all over again.
If you are lining up a VP before a single primary voter goes to the polls, aren’t you saying “I’m the anointed nominee?”
