    It was rumored last week that she was Biden's pick for VP. Might have to scratch that one out.

    “George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday. . . “

    I thought her husband using hydroxychloroquine was an automatic dismissal of a running mate.

    Geez... Kamala Harris may wind up being the running mate by default... And I sincerely believe she would make a HORRIBLE running mate... o_O

    It would be smarter for the Dems to go with someone not many are familiar with. A new face and someone younger. They aren't smart, so it will probably be Kamala or even worse, Abrams.

    Michelle Obama is still on the list,but not much publicity(probably on purpose) to keep BHO out of the limelight.

    They're not smart at all. If they were, they wouldn't have Joe Biden as their alleged nominee.
    No, in fact, they're championship level stupid. So they'll probably name Harris or Abrams, both of whom are horrible people and completely unqualified morons who would be a heartbeat away from the presidency if, God forbid, Biden beat Trump.
    I would hope that even liberals would think twice before pulling the lever for that possibility. But they're so full of irrational hatred for The Giant Orange Man Who Completely Owns Them, they might do it anyway.
    God help us.

    Oh, they'd vote for a stuffed scarecrow in patched coveralls if it was a D running against Trump, don't doubt it.

    But hopefully that'll be enough to run off the independents and moderates that actually decide presidential elections.

    Seems to me, however, they are whole hog on the mail in ballot fraud game.

    The American people will see right through this stunt, especially when she called him a racist in the debate.

    Said this a long time ago. Kamala becomes running mate. Then Biden goes horizontal before election date. DNC has no choice but installing Kamala as nominee weeks before election, asking people to vote for the ticket anyway.
