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. Oh yeah

 

That is a classic non-answer, the kind we've heard before when there is talk about picking a VP. Or it is her way to let it be known that she is open to the idea.

Clearly she knows how to be coy in order to get the most attention. As you can see, her endorsement is getting much more attention that it otherwise would have.

5. She would be a smart pick for Biden if he is considering an AA woman. If this is the case, she

 

far outweighs Kamala or Stacey. We need Florida - already have California and won't get Georgia.
