Or Dick Cheney

That's Mike Pence's fault.

The rumor on Twitter is that Trump will dump Pence "because he bungled the coronavirus" and replace him with Nikki Haley. That way Don will have a minority woman, too, who as we know are interchangeable and means everyone will vote for him instead of Biden.

“If Joe Biden offers the vice presidential slot to Sen. Kamala Harris, my advice to her would be to politely decline.”

That entire argument will be rightly seen as sexist by young voters and blacks. Plus, you take this statement completely out of context. In his statement he is saying that it will hurt her chances to be president.

The quote was only offered as an illustration of how Willie is prone to offer up his two cents no matter how tangential his relevance, nothing else.

Haley is a good bet, but it might be the other Rice - who would make a formidable play for Dumbf. Condoleezza Rice comes off as somewhat neutral to disapproving when it comes to Dumbf, though, so who knows. She hasn't come straight out and attacked him a la Colin Powell. So she might still be in his majesty's good grace.

Pence was set up from the beginning to be the eventual fall guy for the China Virus. And like a good soldier, if it comes to that, he'll take the fall.

Remember McCain not being able to give a good answer as to why he picked Palin over other women? They’re all interchangeable.

Do you think any of them would actually want to take the VP job knowing what they've seen the past 3 1/2 years? His choices of female VPs might be limited to Sarah Palin or Ivanka (maybe Tiffany if he can remember her name).

Ivanka. Perfect. I would actually not be surprised.

Pence is safe but First Lady spot still under review.

But seriously I can't imagine Nikki Haley jumping on this sinking ship of rats. Would be stronger for her to wait and run for the top spot in 2024.

so, it is possible that two Indian-American women could be competing for Prez in 2024?

This thread certainly turned interesting. Trump has his most coveted asset in Pence: perfect loyalty that doesn’t have to DO anything. Nobody remembers or cares about Pence supposedly being “in charge” of the COVID project here. After the first week it’s been all-Trump giving the news.

You have to remember that the one thing a pathological narcissist cannot stand is to be ignored or not in the spotlight for any significant period. This is the first time in a LONG time that he hasn't been, in one way or the other, the main news story. Therefore, expect for his behavior in the next few days to become even more crazed and outrageous as he attacks Biden and Harris and aims to steal the spotlight back. We are truly dealing with a toddler-in-chief here.

Edit: and Nikki Haley is smart enough not to go down with this sinking ship. Maybe she just needs more popcorn? grinning smiley

Here's her Wikipedia page. A quick read further impressed me.

There's a full blown Wiki war going on, her page has been edited about 100 times - in just the last ten minutes alone. In the political arena this always happens so Wiki will have to freeze it at some point.

I'm already tired of seeing that "I was that little girl" bit on TV news.

LOL

If Trump throws his VP under the bus why would Haley (or Rice for that matter) want to be part of Trump's crap show?

Joining the Trump ticket, wouldn't that be like being the last passenger up the gangway to the Titanic? Are there Republicans of merit out there who would want to tie themselves to this leaky ship?

You couldn’t buy me enough popcorn to tune into a Trump/Palin campaign. That would be a legendary matchup.

Sarah Palin actually sent a very nice tweet congratulating Kamala Harris.

While I don't share her policy views on a lot of things, it's true that she should never have been put in that situation. She and her family weren't prepared for that spotlight, to say the least.

Sen. Harris will not gain VP Biden any votes but most any other choice would have cost him a lot of votes.

She might indirectly bring votes. Being from CA might help a lot with fundraising and then using that money in places where votes are needed.
