Presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden has reportedly narrowed the list of finalists for his running mate down to four names.
The remaining contenders are California Senator Kamala Harris, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Florida Rep. Val Demings and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as the token white person in the running.
The former vice president’s move to immediately eliminate any males from the process regardless of their qualifications has been compared to affirmative action by critics but it is mother’s milk to the identity-obsessed activists that now control the Democratic party.
Biden’s choice will be hailed by the media as a triumph for diversity and a rejection of the white male patriarchy despite the obvious contradictions.
Via The Week, “Biden is reportedly down to 4 vice presidential finalists”:
Former Vice President Joe Biden is getting closer to making a vice presidential decision of his own.
Biden has already promised that he’ll pick a woman as his 2020 running mate, and has been under pressure to choose a woman of color after a month of protests against systemic racism and police brutality in the U.S. More than a dozen people close to the Biden search process tell CNN that Biden has listened to that pressure: Just four women are reportedly left on Biden’s short list, and three of them are Black.
Two former presidential contenders, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), reportedly remain on Biden’s list, and rounding it out are Rep. Val Demings of Florida and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Warren is seen as the most progressive of those reportedly on Biden’s shortlist, and would likely signal that Biden is willing to be pulled to the left on some issues. Progressives have meanwhile been hesitant to root for Harris or Demings because of their histories as California’s top prosecutor and the head of Orlando’s police department, respectively.
The media continues to run interference for the former vice president despite his obvious descent into dementia and the DNC has formally downsized this summer’s convention in Milwaukee to minimize lunchbucket Joe’s exposure.
With it being likely that Biden would soon have to step down – or be removed – due to his advanced state of cognitive decline, one of these four could be the first female president in U.S. history.
