Who, Me? Val Demings Refuses To Answer Whether She's Talked To Biden

Politics 3/05/20 5:55am Read time: 2 minutes

The Florida congresswoman sidesteps the question of whether she's being considered for Joe Biden's VP slot.
By Susie Madrak

It's the silly season again, where the thoughts of talking heads turn to potential VPs. And now that Joe Biden is leading in the delegate count, speculation will be rampant, as this CNN interview with Rep. Val Demings shows:

"All right, Congresswoman. I know I'm not the first person to ask you this and won't be the last, but I trust I'm the one you'll answer here. So what happens if Vice President Biden calls you in a month or two and says, 'Congresswoman, I want you to be my running mate. What's your answer?" John Berman asked.

"John, let me say this. I am endorsing Vice President Biden this morning. I'm very, very excited about that. but he needs to be the nominee. We need to do everything we can to make sure that Vice President Biden is the nominee. So I would just say to you let us keep our eyes on the ball and we will cross that bridge when we get there," Demings said.

"I can't help but notice there wasn't an answer to that question."

2. Because it's a bullshit question...

Like talk show host or reporters who ask are u running for prez

That's info comes in the form of a official controlled announcement

Those who ask such questions are trying to steal the spotlight

3. It Is Imperative That Biden Choose A Running Mate Who's Both Young And Experienced

For all the people who fear that a 78-year-old might not finish out his term, you need to offer them a Vice President who can step in and do the job right away in order to assuage those fears. I think Kamala Harris would be a great choice. As much as I like Beto, and think that he could make Trump have to spend money to defend Texas, he's light on experience. I don't know much about Val Demings, other than her being from an important swing State. Does she have the experience that will make voters not familiar with her comfortable if she had to step in and be the President?

4. I think Kamala Harris would be as solid choice

She us a female, African American and much younger than Joe, she also has solid experience. She ticks all the boxes.
