FACTS

    Speculation and anticipation ensue over who Joe Biden’s running mate will be in the upcoming presidential election. Biden has announced he will be choosing a woman to partner with, and based on a report by CBS News, the list of candidates include California Sen. Kamala Harris, California Rep. Karen Bass, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

    RIGHT

    The Right understands the importance of his pick, noting it will be one of the “most important decisions of his campaign before he and President Trump go head-to-head in the fall general election.” A National Review article read, “When you’ve decided in advance that the choice must be a woman, then considerations of merit become secondary,” chiding Biden’s decision to rule out even the most qualified of males. At least one prominent conservative commentator said he will be voting for Biden, his first time ever supporting a Democratic candidate, and noted:

    “A Biden-[Gina] Raimondo ticket would achieve the left’s primary goal, the removal of President Trump. And the resulting administration would restore adult supervision in Washington.”

    George F. Will, libertarian-conservative political commentator

    LEFT

    Many high-profilers on the Left agree that choosing a Black woman is of paramount importance for Biden’s chances of election. Opinions abound as to who the best candidate is, but as Obama’s former senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer wrote, it is believed that “Joe Biden’s vice president will most likely be the most powerful vice president in history.”

    “[Susan Rice’s] credentials are impeccable and would put to rest the argument that Biden is merely pandering to minority voters. Value added: She would eat Pence alive in a debate.”

    Ross K. Baker, Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University

    “Joe Biden’s best choice for running mate is obvious. [Elizabeth Warren] has a national organization, instant name recognition, a strong fundraising network, top-drawer credentials and a track record of igniting the liberal base of the Democratic Party.”
