I’m with American Crossroads, which believes that Joe Biden is just what the Democrat ticket needs:
Gravitas! (Giggle, giggle.)
I’m suspect, though, that the Democrats themselves are becoming disenchanted with Good Old Joe. Apparently they cast around for the Hillary alternative, only to get a resounding “No!” from a woman who neither wanted to be on a winning nor a losing Democrat ticket, because she thought both would be bad for her career. You can always trust the Clintons to keep their eyes on the main chance.
So who’s next? I’m voting for a “Draft Elizabeth Warren” movement.
Think about it for a moment: while the Republican party has more young guns than it can count, who does the Democrat party have? Jesse Jackson, Jr.? No. Poor guy has a bipolar disorder. I wish him well, but no one wishes him on the ticket. Rahm Emanuel? Nope. You don’t go from Chief of Staff, to Mayor of a corrupt, crime-ridden city, to second on the presidential ticket. Raddled old Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi? Big NO there. Debbie What’s-her-name Schlemeil? I think Baghdad Debbie has had her dishonest day.
I didn’t think so.
The only “young” gun they’ve got is Elizabeth Warren. She’s struggling to stay above water in Massachusetts, but Democrats might see her as someone who can revive the base if she’s on the presidential ticket. After all, when it comes to “You didn’t build that,” she and Obama are two minds with but a single thought. Better an exciting candidate on the presidential ticket than a struggling candidate for a senate seat that’s already filled by a fairly popular, attractive RINO.
My best guess today is that, in a week or so, poor old Joe is going to get very sick and need to retire abruptly. And stalwart Progressive Elizabeth Warren will valiantly step up to fill Joe’s shoes.
What do you think?
