How many old white men do we need at the top of this party?

33. Too old to be considered a Baby Boomer

 

The guy at the top of the ticket is going top of the ticket is going to be the oldest major-party nominee ever. It would probably be a good idea to balance things with someone a bit younger.

38. I would argue the opposite

 

We have seen post after post that the reason Warren didn't succeed was due to systemic misogyny.

If we truly believe that such misogyny is so prevalent that a woman couldn't win the Democratic nomination, how in god's name can we expect that one could win on the national ticket?

Beto, Buttigieg, Kamala, Amy << i can go with any of these 4, PLUS other Dem Congressional members.

Klobuchar or Mayor Pete

Both are excellent charismatic younger options and each would be a first when in office (first woman VP or first gay VP)

32. She'd be fine and is probably my 3rd choice

 

I just think Mayor Pete or Klobuchar would be better pairing with Biden and are a little more charismatic.

That being said, I'm not sure who I'd put as my fourth choice, there is a huge drop off in my mind after these three.

39. Actually, I want Harris for AG

 

I think Harris would clean up Justice and the Executive Branch.

And Warren as Secretary of Education.

I do think we need a younger woman as VP. Maybe Klobuchar.

Pete should run for Senate but I guess this is a cycle when there is no IN Senate election so bring him into the Cabinet.

I feel Pete and Stacey Abrams are not quite ready for VP or Pres.
