Biden confirms he's considering Whitmer for VP

Former Vice President Joe Biden confirmed this week that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) is one of the women he's considering as a potential running mate in his White House bid.

Biden, who has already vowed to tap a woman as his vice presidential pick, said Tuesday night he’s been considering Whitmer for the role for months, but that he is eyeing as many as 10 potential candidates.

“She made the list in my mind two months ago. There’s probably going to be a list, I’m in the process of, Brian, we’ll have it by mid-April, putting together an organization that will run the background checks…by the second or third week in April,” Biden told MSNBC host Brian Williams.

“I’ve thought about some of the women who I believe are ready to be president and I think I can work with and would be willing to work with me. It’s going to be somewhere between six and 10 of them.”

Whitmer, a rising Democratic star who flipped Michigan’s governorship in 2018, has long been seen as a possible running mate for Biden. Whitmer runs a crucial swing state that Democrats will almost certainly have to win back in November to defeat President Trump, and she handed Biden a high-profile endorsement before the Wolverine State’s primary last month, which the former vice president ultimately won by double digits.

That's good! Sadly I know several stupid women who will be excited to vote for her. Simply because she's a woman, and they hate Trump.

I’m guessing that Biden envisions a beauty contest, where he gets to come up from behind and snuggle with them as he smells their hair.

All while eating strained food out of a baby food jar.

What is her record on dealing with Covid-19?

No time for long reply right now.

Her most common phrases: "Is my makeup just right?" "Get another spotlight over here or my hair highlights won't show up." "Which camera is on?" "Can you feed me any more lines against Trump?" "Reporters just left? Then I'm outta here. Where's the restroom?"

Whitmer jumped at the chance to be a little strutting dictator from the start, making sure Planned Parenthood, liquor stores and marijuana stores were declared essential and open. Targeted places of worship. Made sure union leaders for K-12 and college teachers and staff were consulted for each decision.

Every speech to every outlet (which she pushed herself onto nationally, too) included continuous snarky anti-Trump hate.

Her default stance: No matter what, blame Trump for it.

Watch ILLary move to Connecticut (right down the street from Chappaqua) in the next week or so...which would mean that she could be Cuomo’s VP choice.

I read the Holder item as SlowJoe looking for advice on what woman would best pander to voters, not asking him to be on the ticket.

This is giving me that peculiar, surreal feeling that I had when I read the headlines every morning during the Obungle administration .
