Joe Diffee - dead at 61 - Ships That Don't Come In

Musical preferences and politics be damned. Joe Diffie was an Entertainer, and in my opinion recorded one of the greatest songs ever. This is my personal favorite.


On edit: Joe was a victim of the Coronavirus.

Biden VP pick? None of the above....

This is only my opinion. I hope he looks for a running mate outside the field of candidates who ran for the Democratic nomination. Here are some of some of the reasons I have formed this opinion.

1. There are some candidates who I believe will bring little or nothing to his campaign.
2. There are several candidates that would better serve the country, and themselves by staying in the positions they now hold.
3. There are several candidates who would be ideal choices for key positions in a Biden Administration.

No, I will not assign names to these reasons. That's another can of worms.

There is plenty of time for Joe to decide, but right now I am looking hard at Val Demmings or Hakeem Jeffries as his running mate. My indulgence candidate? Adam Schiff. This may change as I delve deeper into other possibilities.
