Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I hate to say it: if Romney taps Rubio, the Presidency is his.

History is pretty clear here - selecting a minority member, or a member of an otherwise-oppressed class, wins elections.

Gerry Ferraro, 1984.

Joe Lieberman, 2000.

Sarah Palin, 2008.

Questions?

12. He can't even answer questions on immigration.

 

He would be called a fake. Thanks to Obama for putting Romney in a spot.

20. Interesting that it's Vice President that Causes the Problem....

I mean, if we're counting Catholics as a minority, then Kennedy got the Presidency before Biden got Vice, and, heck, we've got Obama there as a President.

Not saying that minority Presidential candidates are sure winners (obviously not), just pointing out how odd it is that we've had minority presidents before minority vice presidents in at least two instances. And I wouldn't be surprised if we get a woman president before we get a woman vice president

24. Biden.

For one thing he is a great campaigner, and a great speaker. No better advocate for the principles of fairness and equality, he makes it real to people with his heartfelt way of talking.
