People say that there are no coincidences in Washington, D.C. A photo just appeared on twitter of former vice president Joe Biden (D-DE) with Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). There could be 40 Democrats and independents competing to be the Democratic candidate against Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. They do make an intriguing choice.
Harris’ communications director, Lily Adams, snapped the photo. That means it was not just some coincidental selfie. Adams tweeted:
‘You just never know who you might run into in DC….’
Should he decide to run, Biden will be the oldest candidate to ever run for president, at 78 years old. Then again, Trump will be 74. It seems that the 70’s are the new 40’s these days. There may also be Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the mix, too, and he will be 79 in the 2020 election. That would normally be a stopper, but not with these guys. Each one of these three have more energy and stamina that two men in their 50’s.
Kamala Harris would make a great choice for a Biden running mate. He is down-to-the-earth, a friend of the working guy and gal, and experienced. Harris is obviously a woman, black, a powerful former California attorney general, and nobody’s fool. Biden could do one term then hand off the presidency to America’s first woman president.
Political operatives have been on hold in Iowa, waiting to see whether the most charismatic person to hit the political stage since President Barack Obama will run — Beto O’Rourke (D-TX). Even though he narrowly missed his senatorial bid against Ted Cruz (R-TX), people believe he has that special something.
No person has ever become president in recent memory without a huge dose of charisma. Beto also offered a healthy helping of enthusiasm and hope. Trump does not like any of them.
