Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has called it quits and given up on any ambitions of being Joe Biden’s Vice President.
During a broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” on Thursday Klobuchar said Biden should pick a woman of color as his running mate. Obviously Klobuchar wouldn’t fit in that category.
The Minnesota Democrat said, “I have never, as you probably know, on many, many shows, since I endorsed the vice president on that joyful night in Dallas, I’ve never commented on this process at all. But let me tell you this, after what I’ve seen in my state, what I’ve seen across the country, this is a historic moment and America must seize on this moment. And I truly believe, as I actually told the vice president last night, when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”
Democrats as a party have arrived at the consensus that Biden needs a lot of help in beating President Trump. Strategically a woman of color will bring the most advantage as Vice President.
While Klobuchar may be out of contention, another Democrat that ran against Biden in the Democrat primaries may be picked.
Kamala Harris (D-CA) fits what Democrats want perfectly. She is at the top of a shortlist for the sweepstakes that is Joe Biden’s running mate.
