Vice President Duckworth? Maybe...

ILLINOIS (KMOV.com) -- Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth is being considered for Joe Biden's running mate.

Illinois' other U.S. Senator Dick Durbin confirms that Duckworth will interview for a spot on the Democratic ticket. Biden previously pledged his vice presidential candidate would be a woman.

Sen. Duckworth was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016 and was a congresswoman before that.

She lost both her legs while serving in Iraq when the Black Hawk helicopter she was piloting was shot down.

1. Been on the Duckworth bandwagon for quite a while

I figured whoever the nominee was, Tammy Duckworth would be a great VP pick.

3. She's terrific and you just KNOW

that these RW pricks will “Cleland” her: she’s to blame for losing her legs. Just you wait and see.

8. They'll go birther on her first.

Also, she was wounded in action while Cleland was wounded in an accident IIRC. Not that the distinction would likely make a difference to those wanting to assassinate her character.

6. I can't think of many other candidates that represent so many things the GOP hates...

Asian, female, double amputee war veteran, not overtly religious. I already like her anyway, so seeing all the MAGAts wail and gnash their teeth over her will be the icing on the cake.

There is always a chance that some Repub veterans might come to the Dem side when they see Drumpf attacking her military service (which we all know he will).
