Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, is set to announce his running mate this week. Given the significant role that black voters played in his nomination, it is likely that the former vice president will select a black woman.

While I think that the article's criticism of Rice having never run for office is misplaced, I do agree that her likability is similar to HRC and for that reason Sen. Harris would be his best pick of the two.

Kamala Harris likability is lower than Hillary Clinton.

I don't agree, I think that people will see that she is smart, funny and will shred Pence at the debates.

LCL does seem to think that Harris would be a huge liability for Biden.

If Joe had any sense he'd pick Oprah. I'd vote for that ticket.

But he's an establishment democrat so he'll pick a safe "insider" who will tow the establishment party line.

"Kamala Harris likability is lower than Hillary Clinton."

Nah, Harris is much more likable than Hillary ever was. She is also much more likable than Susan Rice, IMO.

Biden/Harris 2020!

Public defender: I worked with Kamala Harris. She was the most progressive DA in California.

I grappled with this idea of defending a former prosecutor for a long time, but I have to say what I feel is right to set the record straight on Harris.

There has been much talk about the time Sen. Kamala Harris spent as a prosecutor. As a public defender for 24 years, I examined, critiqued and battled Harris when she was the San Francisco district attorney. And more often than not, Harris and I were on opposite sides.

Having had this experience, I feel compelled to speak on Harris' record while she was a district attorney. Simply put, Harris was the most progressive prosecutor in the state. This is not an anecdotal opinion. It is based on facts.

Simply put, that's not saying much in terms of actually being a progressive.

For the swing voter who isn't really into politics, she has too many of Hillary Clinton's qualities.

I don't see how/why Harris is too much like Hillary. At any rate, I doubt swing voters who think Harris is too much like Hillary will like Susan Rice any better.

There's plenty in there not to like, for the people who didn't like Hillary Clinton.
It's all women. There's no men. That's very deeply threatening to millions of men.

Why Joe Biden Needs Kamala Harris

He wants to ensure his loss to Trump?

They should just play Kamala calling out Biden in the primaries over and over again.

She can bury him.

That guy is into roleplaying.
For us, he's roleplaying the "Democrat, Liberal" in his profile.

Kinda agree with Clownshack on what makes Harris bad.

A large number of men are simply not able to view women as equals or superiors.
I mean, I know we all have to put up with in life (to varying degrees).
But given the chance to vote against it, they'll vote against it.
But, Joe promised us a woman, so that's just spilt milk.

Makes no difference whether he picks the ho Harris or whoever, China Joe has no chance. The DNC is just using him, he has serious Demetria as he has displayed while hiding in his basement. Voters see he is not all there, I cannot wait to see him get taken apart on national TV by Trump. Face facts, demorats are going to lose this in big time.

Don't count on that. There are many here that say they would vote for a manikin (Joe) before Trump.

The fact we are all facing is that if Trump wins it will because he is cheating to do so in anyway that he can. These tricks he plays with the Post Office are the most obvious.

If Donald were a sure winner, he wouldn't have to cheat. If he were a sure winner, dogs like you wouldn't support him in cheating.

You are a sniveling dog led in a pack by a mangy cur. Human dogs such as yourself have no sense, and no spine; actual canines would have torn him apart long since.

Someone could take a large, smelly dump and I'd vote for that instead of Trump. In fact, I think the country would breath a collective sigh of relief to have a silent pile of ---- as president rather than the noisy one we have now.

Kamela will be on White Mike like a doberman on a lawyer. Rice would be on him like an educated adult on a fourth grader.

The question left to answer: who will Kanye pick for VP? I'm guessing either Lizzo, his mother-in-law or the undocumented housekeeper cleaning their vacation house house in Wyoming...

The radar has been turned off since Trumpy took command.

He has no idea where the enemy is or which direction it will attack from next.

That's why hundreds of thousands of us have already died at a rate of over a thousand deaths a day.

Biden should pick Abrams. Abrams didn't fight to keep wrongfully convicted people behind bars like Harris did.

The story she told about meeting her future in-laws is an example of her sense of humor. Great accent too!

Lol, Kamala tells a story about the first time she met @douglasemhoff's parent.

His mom told her she's prettier than she is on TV...but Kamala does the accent and everything. pic.twitter.com/7QGgpVS1GP

"Why Joe needs Kamala"

This was called 9 months ago by Scott Adams. You need somebody that ticks the intersectional boxes, but is still worse than Joe. Kamala was such a poor choice for Dems in the primary she never broke 10% and dropped out before the first vote was ever cast. She makes Joe look great to Dems by comparison and could theoretically gain Joe a point or two with him having the Dem version of a Tough On Crime Republican as VP.
