Likewise, someone like Michelle Obama (not that she's interested, but let's assume she were) would also resonate among Democrats.
 
I'll need some kind of evidence Warren would be unpopular with blacks. Historically blacks have supported Democrats (since LBJ) with overwhelming majorities. I don't see how Warren would buck this trend.
The fact Warren is white when the expectation has been set for a woman of color.

Accomplishments are helpful, yes - but the critical qualifications for VP are melanin and a vagina.

When your map disputes the territory, it's your map that is wrong.

Most are so disgusted by Trump at this point Biden could pick Ficus Tree, and he'd still win.

Or so MSM victims are led to believe.

The voters are no more disgusted with their monkey wrench than they were the first time they threw him in the draw works. For most, it was never about his qualifications.

Better hitler than blum.

Get with reality, not the echo chamber that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, Princess.

Professor Allan Lichtman, who has accurately predicted elections since 1984, says Biden will win

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... 304680001/

The economy matters, optics matter, and 35 million without jobs and 200,000 dead of Covid-19 on election day matter.

Here, have a puppy, you'll need it...

My Aunt Lucinda has picked every president since Kennedy - and I have voted for every winner since I started voting.

Your lips and my balls just collided - and your lips took the brunt of it.

You're underestimating their contempt for Trump.

He could pick **** Jeb Bush and they would still vote for Biden. You already see the evidence in the responses in this thread.

I think Kamala Harris is well qualified.
Too bad she is so 'ambitious'.

Participants in political debate forums are outliers. Many liberals would vote for a Biden/Bolton ticket if it means getting rid of the mango Mussolini. I think Biden will have issues exciting the social justice warrior Bernie Bros and would lose enthusiasm from the black community if his VP wasn't a person of color.

Some of the worry about her is her record as a prosecutor and the fact she was did not "progressive" law changes.  Some have labeled her a regressive prosecutor.  She also did support some police reform like state regulation of body camera's on police.  In today's environment her record as prosecutor could be a big problem.

In 2015, she opposed a bill requiring her office to investigate shootings involving officers. And she refused to support statewide standards regulating the use of body-worn cameras by police officers. For this, she incurred criticism from an array of left-leaning reformers, including Democratic state senators, the A.C.L.U. and San Francisco’s elected public defender. The activist Phelicia Jones, who had supported Ms. Harris for years, asked, “How many more people need to die before she steps in?

no, you haven't proven that by assertion. Unless you can show your mention prior to my post of Feb 8, you lose..

Hey BV, did Jan 24th 2020 come before or after Feb 8th 2020?

My SIL was a big fan of hers when she was running for president.
I told him to check her record as a prosecutor.
She jailed a lot of young black men.
