4. I think (and hope) Biden is saving Harris for SCOTUS

V.P has more status, but SCOTUS is a lot more important.

I think I could get behind that

8. Not to brag, but I predicted Dan Quayle

I also predicted Carter when he first announced, when no one had heard of him.

3. For Joe, chemistry is the main thing.

That’s why I think he will choose Karen Bass.

11. Joe is also a very cautious person

That's not a criticism, there is a lot to be said for being cautious. But I think he will make the safest choice.

19. Beyond the main point--(she, presumably, gets along with Joe and is backed by Chris Dodd).

She’s a proven legislator and leader (Speaker of the California Assembly and Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus). She’s a die-hard liberal (appeasing Joe’s left flank). She’s quiet but effective—very little baggage and a solid, working track record. She won’t upstage Joe (because she’s a quiet, behind-the-scenes hard worker). She’s an African-American woman, and that will help election turn-out. She’s not a prosecutor, and that means she’s not tainted by George Floyd’s death in a BLM year.

She’s Joe’s best choice, I think. All it comes down to, now, is whether or not Joe gets along with her. That I do not know.

20. Hard to agree with that.

We shall see.

5. Voting Rice. I think it's Rice or Harris. It's all about the turnout.

At this point if he doesn’t pick an AA woman a lot of people will be very disappointed.

Harris plays very well on TV. Sorry if that seems crude but hey.
Rice is super impressive in every respect. She’s the best pick but I do think it will be Harris.

Duckworth? Just don’t see it happening.

6. I'm sick of this extended process in public.

It's damaging.

12. I agree. In fact, I think the entire process of choosing almost all of our

elected officials, especially president, is dragged out for way too long. It's just exhausting.

13. Me, too, but it's a case of "damned if you do, damned if you don't"

If the process were conducted in private, you'd hear never-ending howls of "smoke-filled rooms," "secrecy," "cabals," etc. The process never has been pretty; probably it never will be. Here's hoping it won't be too damaging!

22. Me too it's dragged on so long I've totally lost interest and

I've reached the point that I don't know and I don't care.

7. V.P candidates are like doctors, the first rule is "do no harm". I haven't heard a single criticism

of Duckworth. Plus her veteran status will play well in Texas, Georgia, and Florida.

16. I go between Harris and Rice

with Duckworth as the spoiler.

Any of those 3 are A-OK with me.

As Cactus Jack Garner said. Who cares? It's a pointless job unless Biden dies in office.

18. I think Harris

But I like the idea of her on the Supreme Court and I'd vote for whoever he picks. We have so many good people on our side that we will have a tremendous administration full of good, qualified people. Unlike right now.

23. Mazie Hirono

I figured Rice from the moment Klobuchar pulled out.
They were the two with the closest long term working relationship and if they were on the list they have already passed Biden's stated tests.

The Bass, Harris California infighting has hurt both.
