Biden Campaign Teases African American Female Running Mate, Then Walks It Back

I posted on my Facebook page last week that an African American woman was probably not going to be Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick.

Biden’s campaign trotted out African American South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn (who literally saved his sagging campaign) to send up a trial balloon suggesting an African American female running mate was “not a must.”

On April 29th Clyburn said: “I think having a woman on the ticket is a must. “I’m among those who feel that it would be great for him to select a woman of color. But that is not a must. “I think that he should be informed in this decision by the vetting and the polling. And I think he should be guided by his head and his heart.”

But, back on March 11, Clyburn was singing an entirely different tune: “I really believe that we’ve reached a point in this country where African American women need to be rewarded for the loyalty that they’ve given to this party.”  

A new CBS poll shows the leading contender for Biden’s VP is Massachusetts Senator and former Biden presidential rival Elizabeth Warren. 

Seventy-one percent of Democratic voters say Warren should be considered as a running mate, topping the list of potential female picks. Warren was followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at 59 percent, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams at 50 percent and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) at 49 percent. The Massachusetts progressive also earned the top first-choice pick for the position, at 36 percent. Harris followed at 19 percent, ahead of Abrams at 14 percent and Klobuchar at 13 percent.  

Honestly, even before this poll, my money was already on Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas”Lie-Awatha”I have a plan for that” Warren. 

Why do I call Senator Warren “Lie-Awatha?” Well, she claimed to be a Native American to gain a teaching job at Harvard. She claimed her children went to public schools when they didn’t.

She claimed she was fired for being pregnant even though we later learned she was offered a contract to teach for another year.

She also claimed her father had been a “janitor.” And last but not least, she claimed Bernie Sanders told her personally that a woman couldn’t be elected president of the United States. 

Why Senator Warren over Senators’ Klobuchar, Harris, and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams? I think it simply comes down to three things.

One, Warren has the most appeal to Bernie Sanders voters. Sanders and Warren were both competing for the same far left-wing progressive voters during the primary season.

Two, 12% of Sander’s supporters voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and recent polling says 15% will not vote for Biden this presidential election cycle.

Three, she has the utter disdain and contempt for the President that the Progressives love and they feel she’s the strongest VP candidate to be the attack dog against the President — the traditional role of the running mate.

The Biden Campaign is literally playing with fire by teasing that an African American female would be his running mate and then backing away from it.

It now looks like that’s not going to happen. African American females are and have literally been the backbone of the Democratic party.

To appease AA’s who may be disappointed he didn’t choose a black woman as his running mate, reports are surfacing that Biden is promising to nominate the first African American female to the Supreme court.

Historically AA’s are fiercely loyal to the Jack Ass party and the Party seems to be betting that hatred of Donald Trump will transcend any massive disappointment that will come from an African American female being passed over as a running mate. This seems to be a gamble the campaign is willing to take.
