Former Vice President Joe Biden is looking for a female running mate on his presidential ticket for the Democrats, but the idea of the candidate being a black woman may not come to a fruition.
Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), a surrogate for the Biden campaign who was influential in resurrecting Biden’s presidential hopes, has said that putting a black woman on the ticket is “not a must,” which is bad news for failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
“I think having a woman on the ticket is a must,” the third-ranking House Democrat told NBC News during an interview. “I’m among those who feel that it would be great for him to select a woman of color. But that is not a must.”
“I think that he should be informed in this decision by the vetting and the polling. And I think he should be guided by his head and his heart,” Clyburn added.
In March, Clyburn had urged Biden to select a black woman as his running mate to show his appreciation for the scores of black voters who rallied behind him so he could beat insurgent socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the primary elections.
“I really believe that we’ve reached a point in this country where African American women need to be rewarded for the loyalty that they’ve given to this party,” Clyburn said to NPR earlier this year.
Biden has previously talked up Abrams as a potential vice presidential pick, but her embarrassing media appearances have arguably hurt her chances to be put on the ticket.
“I believe that women deserve to be heard, and I believe that they need to be listened to. But I also believe that those allegations have to be investigated by credible sources. The New York Times did a deep investigation, and they found that the accusation was not credible. I believe Joe Biden,” Abrams said recently – showing that she will throw a potential sexual assault victim under the bus in order to further her vice presidential ambitions.
“I would be an excellent running mate,” Abrams said during an interview with Elle magazine that was published in April.
“I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating typically ignored communities,” she added. “I have a strong history of executive and management experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. I’ve spent 25 years in independent study of foreign policy. I am ready to help advance an agenda of restoring America’s place in the world. If I am selected, I am prepared and excited to serve.”
Unfortunately for Abrams, Clyburn’s comments indicate that the Biden campaign may end up going for a white female running mate – such as Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota or Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan.
“There are a lot of red areas in the state, and Klobuchar is beloved in many of them. It’s a decent test case for the senator’s electability argument, and could make Klobuchar an appealing pick,” Vox wrote about Klobuchar’s strengths as a VP candidate.
“Biden recently invited Whitmer onto his weekly podcast, where he called her “one of the most talented people in the country” and a “friend.” In addition to talking about the challenges facing the country, the two seem to have an affinity for each other; Whitmer recounted how Biden shared Fig Newtons with her and her daughter during a campaign stop,” Vox wrote about the personal relationship that has developed between Biden and Whitmer.
After failing in her bid for Georgia governor, it is looking like Abrams will fail in her attempt to be Biden’s vice president as well.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
