Sorry, Beto, Take A Hike
Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders seem likely to be the Democrats’ Presidential hopeful in 2020. If either man becomes the candidate, look for him to name a woman as his vice presidential running mate. That’s the prediction of The Liberty Hound, who goes out on a limb to guess their most likely VP choices.
In the case of Biden, TLH projects either former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams or California Senator Kamala Harris as the anointed vice president.
TLH says Sanders probably viewed Elizabeth Warren as his best running mate early in the campaign, but now won’t touch her with a 10-foot-pole after she attacked him after the last debate. Who could take her place? Maybe Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, perhaps the maverick Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.
The long and the short of it: Beto O’Rourke can kiss his chances goodbye. He’s not a woman. And he’s not Hispanic either!
