4. yep. I get it that it helps keep Joe in the news cycle

 

from a positive standpoint--but it could quickly become more divisive than helpful.

3. It's a "Veepstakes side show" only because the public calls it or makes it so.

Joe knows what he's doing, and he announced it would be announced just before the Convention that starts next Monday. He's merely on schedule as he sees and sets it. If we just let him go about his business, no "side show" develops.

And...he's making a serious and considered decision.
Recall those who didn't do so - aka, John McCain?

6. There's been too much buildup about a POC.

Iím concerned about a negative reaction if he picks a Caucasian.

11. fine. it still won't be a negative once decided

 

just taking 2 top choices (Whitmer and Harris) both have already received intense media focus and will mot have trouble shifting to Veep level messaging.

I have hopes since she dropped out that it would be Harris, but I would understand Whitmer choice. Most others I wouldn't feel as strongly positive about but also wouldn't feel negative.

I think Susan Rice is the riskiest choice.

13. Ditto.

Itís a fundamentally boring decision that isnít getting any more interesting for being dragged out for six months. Pick someone, print some signs and lets get on with it.
