10 of the best women chosen by Joe Biden as vice president| Instant News


First, the former candidate for governor of Georgia Stacey Abrams told Elle magazine that he would not only accept the vice-president’s nomination if it were offered but he “would be a very good partner.” Then, in an interview with Rachel Maddow of MSNBC on Wednesday night, Massachusetts Senator Warren Warren said he would accept a VP offer from Biden. And then, Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer says this: “I think the world of Joe Biden. You know, I will do anything for Joe Biden and it is even mentioned among the phenomenal caliber of women leaders across the country – that in itself it is an honor.”

Why all the sudden activities? With Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders finally ending his campaign last week, it now seems perfectly acceptable to openly express his interest in becoming the second person to hold the post of Biden. So people scramble. Lots!

For that reason, I will now release my new and updated ranking of the Top 10 women – Biden has promised to elect a female vice president – who will probably be a Democratic vice-presidential candidate, every Thursday until a choice is made.

My latest ranking is below. Woman ranked number one is the most preferred VP choice today.

(Note bene: Many people ask why former First Lady Michelle Obama is not on my last listt – and he is also not in this matter. The reason is simple: I don’t think he will accept the job if offered to him. If that changes, then he will become No. pick. 1 right away.)
Stacey Abrams

10. Stacey Abrams: If the past was a prologue, actively campaigning to become vice president almost ensured that Abrams would not get it. (Historically, acting as if you were almost completely unaware that even having a vice president chosen is a recipe for success.) It is said that Abrams is a young woman (46), an African-American woman who won several thousand votes from winning the Georgian governor in 2018. (Previous rank: 9)

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms
9. Subordinate Keisha Lance: I have been several times the mayor of Atlanta in and out of this list. But conversations with people who know have convinced me that he deserves a place. KLB is not only the mayor of a big city in the south but also he was also one of Biden’s earliest and most powerful supporters and successors. And at the age of 50, he will represent a major generation change for 77-year-old Biden. (Previous rank: Not ranked)
Wisconsin Senator, Tammy Baldwin
8. Tammy Baldwin: beat victory from a liberal Democrat on justice the Supreme Court of the conservative Wisconsin state this week must make Democrats feel good about their chances of taking back the Badger State from President Donald Trump in November.

But there is no question how central Wisconsin will be to the Biden and Trump election map. And Baldwin has just been re-elected to the Senate from the state with 55% in 2018. (Previous rank: 7)

Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth

7. Tammy Duckworth: Illinois senator continues to fly under the national radar when it comes to the VP election process. He doesn’t watch much national cable TV and doesn’t give interviews where he floats himself as a possibility.

But there are many things to recommend it – including his military service which caused the loss of his legs and full use of his right arm, the fact that he was the first US senator to give birth while in office and moderate politics that are in harmony with Biden’s politics. (Previous rank: 6)
Susan Rice

6. Susan Rice: I have left Rice, who served as ambassador to the United Nations and national security adviser in the Obama administration, out of my first two sets of VP rankings. I have been convinced – by people in a position to know these things – that is a mistake. On paper, Rice made perfect sense: An African-American woman who was close to Obama and had one of the deepest sources of national security knowledge in the country. Plus, at age 55, Rice will represent the type of generation that Biden is looking for. (Previous rank: Not ranked)

Massachusetts Senator, Elizabeth Warren
5. Elizabeth Warren: A week ago, Warren had not supported Biden or said he would be willing to be his vice president. Now he does those two things – and in one day! I am still skeptical that Biden will choose someone whose views are, in general, far to his ideological left – especially in health care. But if he would choose a leading liberal, it would be a Massachusetts senator. (Previous rank: 5)
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer
4. Gretchen Whitmer: Governor of Michigan is in the midst of controversy, which has attracted national attention, regarding whether his latest executive order on how to fight the corona virus got too close to a violation of individual freedom. That negative attention might eliminate some of what has become a meteoric rise in national superiority for Whitmer. (Previous rank: 2)
Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto

3. Catherine Cortez Masto: The Nevada senator just made a lot of sense to Biden. He has the experience he is looking for (he was the attorney general in the state before being elected to the Senate in 2016). But at the age of 56, he also made sense as a bridge of generations for him.

In addition, he is one of the highest ranking Latina elected officials in the country, at a time when the population is booming and Biden hopes to capture voters in key countries such as Colorado, Florida and, yes, Nevada, in November. (Previous rank: 4)

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar

2. Amy Klobuchar: If Biden watches the presidential campaign, the Minnesota senator runs in 2020 – and he – then he knows that he has a long track record of electoral success in the Midwest, supports his pragmatic approach to politics and is an excellent debater. He is also much better known today than 18 months ago – and is preferred. (Previous rank: 3)

California Senator, Kamala Harris

1. Kamala Harris: Like Cortez Masto, Harris is an absolute sweet spot between age and experience. He is 55 years old – two decades younger than Biden – but also old enough to serve as, among others, California’s attorney general. He is also the most prominent African-American elected official in the country now, and given how black voters were central to Biden’s ultimate victory, it was a big advantage for him. (Previous ranking: 1)
