17. I think whoever the pick is will be met with "concern" by Biden opponents

...given his age, does (fill in the blank) really have the qualifications? Warren does have the age, experience, and gravitas to answer that. That said, I don't think she will be the pick.

Three I wouldn't rule out:

Demings - The Florida connection and the police experience make her a very attractive pick.
Whitmer - Not that Veeps have had a stellar record delivering their states - but Joe needs Michigan.
Duckworth - WOC, disabled Vet, mom, coiner of "Cadet Bonespurs", and Midwesterner. And a safe Senate seat (unlike Warren)

Who do you want Biden to pick for Veep? [View all] Algernon Moncrieff Aug 2020 OP
