REPORT: Amy Klobuchar is the Favorite for Joe Biden’s Running Mate

Biden has said he’ll pick a woman.

So-called Democratic insiders are claiming that Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is the front-runner in Joe Biden’s process for choosing a running mate, according to new reporting from the New York Post.

Klobuchar is squarely within the centrist wing of the party, and her selection would mean that Biden’s presidential ticket is composed of two figures associated with the Democratic establishment. Biden has already pledged to pick a woman in a gesture towards shameless identity politics.

A supposed Biden campaign “insider” apparently told the New York Post that the Minnesota Senator “could be number one” in Biden’s current selection process. Other contenders include neoliberal Democrats Kamala Harris and Gretchen Whitmer.

Klobuchar has spoken openly of her ambitions to be selected as Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential nominee before, telling a Biden campaign crowd during her endorsement that she “couldn’t think of a better way to end my candidacy than join the ticket.”

The Minnesota Senator’s campaign was beset of accusations of being an abusive boss towards her own senate staffers, ranging from verbally berating employees to even telling a senate staffer to eat a salad with a comb after forgetting to bring utensils.

Klobuchar’s endorsement of Biden just before Super Tuesday(coinciding with an endorsement from gun-grabber Beto O’Rourke) proved crucial in buffing up Biden enough to fend off democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, having ended her own presidential campaign immediately before. Her Vice Presidential nomination could possibly be a reward for her loyalty to the party establishment.

Joe Biden would be the oldest President ever to be sworn in on inauguration day if he proves successful in defeating Donald Trump, and it’s not entirely impossible his Vice President would take over the reins of the presidency should he win. In any case, the loyal member of the Democrat establishment provides an effective prop for Biden to speak of his commitment towards empowering women.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
