One of the greatest questions, other than those surrounding the COVID-19 virus, is who will former Vice President Joe Biden select as his running mate? Usually, a president chooses someone who will be the ying to his yang. Certainly, a woman would be an excellent choice as his running. mate. It is about time.
Biden is the assumed Democratic presidential candidate. He appreciates strong women. His wife Dr. Jill Biden has her doctorate and is an educator. The women who ran against him would make excellent choices for him. Then, there is former first lady Michelle Obama.
In an interview with Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s. KDKA, Jon Delano questioned him about the former first lady. He responded:
‘I’d take her in a heartbeat. She’s brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends. I don’t think she has any desire to live near the White House again.’
Biden will be 78 when he takes office. Would he consider a second race after his four years are up, or would he hand it off to his running mate? He said that it was too early in the campaign to make a decision:
‘In terms of who to pick, we’re just beginning the process. We’ll shortly name the committee to review this and begin to look through the backgrounds of the various potential nominees. And that’s just getting underway.’
He told Delano that he has not decided whether to select a woman of color as his running mate, though. “Uncle Joe” was coy, but he did commit to a woman as his choice:
‘I’ll commit to that be a woman because it is very important that my administration look like the public, look like the nation. And there will be, committed that there will be a woman of color on the Supreme Court, that doesn’t mean there won’t be a vice president, as well.’
Biden could check off two minority groups, a woman and a person of color. He has talked to the governor candidate Stacey Abrams lost when many votes were not protected from her Florida contender. The former VP continued:
‘I think it’s really important now that we establish once and for all, we should have had a woman president already, in Hilary (Clinton), in my view. There are a number of qualified women out there.’
So far, Biden enjoys the support of 12 southwestern Pennsylvania county leaders. Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald indicated that he and 11 county commissioners in this area of Pennsylvania have endorsed Joe Biden for president.
Biden grew up in Pennsylvania, but then his father lost his job and his family had to move to Delaware. He represented Delaware in the Senate and was re-elected six times. He relates to the working person, the people who have lost children, yet he came in last in the November Pittsburgh primary race.
