    Yeah, he was the only semi- decent one, IIRC.

    Elizabeth Warren Reportedly ‘Courting’ Andrew Gillum as Possible VP Pick

    https://www.theroot.com/elizabeth-wa...-as-1838958614

    Could a Warren-Gillum ticket be in the works? An election 2020 ticket featuring Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren and Andrew Gillum, the Democratic former mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., who came thisclose to being the Sunshine State’s first black governor?

    The Massachusetts senator’s camp says that’s not at all in the cards. But the Daily Beast reports that its sources say that Warren is indeed “courting” Gillum.
    YES, PLEASE. I'd prefer Stacey Abrams, but he's bad ass, too.

    I know this will sound sexist, but I think there is zero pecent chance that is Warren in the nominee, that she will also have a female VP on the ticket.


    Now if one of the men should come away with the democratic nomination, I could see her being in play for VP spot on ticket.

    I hope she would turn that down. VP is kind of a dud job. She can do more good staying in the Senate.

    Well she'd have to get elected to Senate to start doing anything in it. She was in GA House of Reps before running and losing the Ga Gov race. I don't think she's currently in any elected position.

    I agree but I can dream. It's just bull................. It's been fine and dandy to have all-male tickets since... forever.

    I hate society.

    Because he mentioned Warren by name in the first paragraph so I thought he was referencing her in the second. :shrug:

    Ah I see. Yeah I doubt Warren's interested in VP job and if Warren isn't the nominee it's probably Biden or Bernie and I can't see a ticket with two 70+ on it.


    But to clarify I was talking about Stacey Abrams who jen brought up.

    The Kurds are, understandably, allying themselves with the Assad government and, hence, Iran and the Russians.

    I don’t need the US needs to be the world's policemen. I do think, though, that it served our interests to be taken seriously as an influence in the region - elven a hegemonic power (if exercised lightly). That’s out the window.

    I can't imagine allying with a brutal dictator such as Assad. I'm just... heartbroken.

    I know way too many people who feign concern over embryos but give no ducks (yes, ducks) about the slaughter of Kurdish people.

    The embryos are white. The Kurds are not.

    Not all the embryos are white. They just want to control female bodies.

    I can't blame them if the alternative is death by genocide.
