Top Candidate for Biden VP Slot Says ‘No Thanks’, But Makes Stern Suggestion

Joe Biden has but one real decisions left to make, and it just got a little easier for him.

The path to the 2020 election certainly feels as though it is a downhill jaunt at this point, with less that 140 days until Americans will be heading to the ballot box.  The pace of the race is quickening, and we are nearly certain that we’ll be choosing between incumbent Republican President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently the presumptive democratic nominee.

The candidates have been aiming their political might squarely at one another as of late, further indicating their belief that this part of the matchup is set in stone.

And, as far as Biden goes, there is only one real move left to make, and that is picking his running mate.  The longtime Senator has already committed to choosing a female running mate, and his short list of possible veeps just got shorter.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced Thursday she was removing herself as a candidate to be former Vice President Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick.

And that’s not all she said…

Klobuchar told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell she called Biden Wednesday evening with her decision, saying she believes “this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”

Biden pledged earlier this year to pick a woman to be his running mate and is currently considering about a half dozen candidates, including several women of color.

“After what I’ve seen in my state and what I’ve seen across the country, this is a historic moment and America must seize on this moment,” she said. “There are so many incredibly qualified women. But if you want to heal this nation right now — my party, yes, but our nation — this sure is a hell of a way to do it. And that’s just what I think after being through this in my state.”

The demand could wrinkle the nose of Elizabeth Warren, one of the few remaining white women on the short list of Joe Biden’s VP possibilities.
