Hmm I bet she would go with a non-white person. 
 

I could see Castro honestly. It would be funny because it would be a ticket specifically designed to infuriate you! 😂


I think Susan Rice would make sense. Not sure if she has any interest in being VP but she has tons of experience on foreign policy.

 

But there are plenty of good VP candidates out there.

It would be nice if the Dems for once could coalesce into a tight formation. Pick your candidate, everyone else fall in line, and those who aren’t in go find a place to run and win, especially if that place is in the Senate.

She would probably be a good option for National Security Advisor or Secretary of State for Warren, but don't think she's much of a politician. We'd need a Dem senate to get her through to Secretary of State, as Republicans already blocked her nomination once due to the Benghazi bullshit. 

 

If she was going with a black woman (doubtful), just pick Kamala Harris who sits on the intel (and judiciary) committee.

I actually have always like both Castros, I've followed Julian closely for many years and knew about him before Obama was even elected.  I just think that low blow in the debate made him look bad and was very politically stupid. He was probably coached to be more aggressive to try and make a splash to get out of the doldrums, but I don't think it works for him. He's always been more of a happy warrior and positive politician rather than the demeaning/aggressive persona he had in that one debate.

 

I also think his immigration position is too far left politically. 

 

But I've always thought Castro was a talented politician with a bright future, only recently he started acting a fool with low blow attacks against a well liked party statesmen. I do think that asking rust belt independents to vote for a Warren/Castro ticket is a very heavy lift politically and would be quite a dangerous gamble against Trump. But it would likely turn out more hispanic voters too. 

 

Warren could either go with a minority or go with a true moderate (Castro and Booker are both somewhat moderate, but I mean a real moderate) as a running mate. I'm not sure at this point which option would be wiser politically. If she goes with a minority, I would hope she would pick Booker. 

 

Castro being on the ticket wouldn't make any difference to me, but I can tell you that with the way a lot of white suburban and rural middle class people think, it would be a drag on the ticket in the states that Warren needs to win and which will already be a struggle for her to win in the first place. I think hispanic votes would get a a boost but not enough to offset the negative among the white working class.

I haven't see any evidence that Castro actually does anything to excite Hispanic voters (or any voters) so I don't think he'd be a good pick. He seems decent on paper (solid speaker, good policy chops) but appears to appeal to virtually no one.

 

Hispanic voters are also tend to vote way less as a block compared to black voters so targeting them with a VP pick would probably pay fewer dividends. Booker would seem like a pretty good pick.

I think we all know "true moderate" is code for "white man."

No. Hakeem Jeffries is a true moderate, Stacey Abrams, Cedric Richmond, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Bill Richardson, etc.

FWIW:

 

Three quarters of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents are pleased with the selection of Democratic candidates in the 2020 presidential contest, which is among the highest levels of satisfaction measured in decades, according to a survey released Wednesday. 

 

The Gallup poll found that 75 percent of respondents said they were pleased with the large list of contenders while 21 percent said they wished someone outside the field was running for the nomination.

 

The poll found that 85 percent of those who identified as ideologically liberal said they were satisfied with the field, while 71 percent who identified as moderate and 54 percent of Conservative Democrats and leaners said the same. 

 

By contrast in April of 2016, when Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were running for the Democratic nomination, 55 percent said they were happy with the selection while 42 percent said they wished someone else was running. 

 

The survey also found that 72 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents were pleased by their choices for the party's 2020 nomination, which is almost sure to be President Trump.

Why is it even this close in Ohio?  I'd figure the Democrat would be ahead by more.

 

I highly doubt Democrats will win Ohio. Biden's campaign manager is from Ohio and was Obama's Ohio state director and they have a lot of firepower there, so Biden has a slight chance to win the state. 

 

But Warren has very little chance there imo

 

Biden also would be a shoe-in to win Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and would put Florida in play there with his popularity there with older independents. 

 

I think Warren could slightly win Wisconsin and would probably win Pennsylvania, but the electoral college would likely be way too close for comfort with Warren.
