so would that be pete then? as i dont see him going for amy and cant think of any one else in the race but perhaps Bloomberg that may jump in on team biden but not sure what demographic that gets biden that he does not have already


I thought Biden said early on he would pick a woman as his running mate.
Boomblerg would be a obvious choice from a $$$ standpoint...but people don't like him.

Since Bernie Sanders is expected to win over 500 delegates this coming Tuesday, Joe Biden needs to announce a very attractive vice president running mate...like right now!

this is some what bloombergs plan show up to super Tuesday and hopefully get a few wins/strong showings and then go after the super delegates hes been courting while the first primaries have been happening and try to either win brokered or attach him self to whom ever the dnc chooses campaign


www.politico.com...

LAS VEGAS — Mike Bloomberg is privately lobbying Democratic Party officials and donors allied with his moderate opponents to flip their allegiance to him — and block Bernie Sanders — in the event of a brokered national convention. The effort, largely executed by Bloomberg’s senior state-level advisers in recent weeks, attempts to prime Bloomberg for a second-ballot contest at the Democratic National Convention in July by poaching supporters of Joe Biden and other moderate Democrats, according to two Democratic strategists familiar with the talks and unaffiliated with Bloomberg.



then this www.theatlantic.com...

Imagine a Democratic nominee who’s a socialist and not even a member of the party. Now imagine a Democratic nominee who’s a billionaire businessman who spent his way into contention. It might be time to start preparing for mayhem. Bernie Sanders is well positioned to sweep Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada—“a domino effect,” Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota predicted at a campaign event for the Vermont senator on Saturday. His aides believe that they’ll be able to bring in the skeptics, and that “the haters will shut up when we win,” as Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan put it on Friday night at another event for him, as she led booing of Hillary Clinton. They don’t just insist that Sanders will beat Donald Trump; they say he could scramble the electoral map. They say everyone who thinks he’d be easy pickings for Trump is falling for modern-day red-baiting, and missing Sanders’s high favorability ratings among Democrats. “The elites who are freaking out are the 1 percent,” Ari Rabin-Havt, one of Sanders’s deputy campaign managers, told me in between canvassing stops in Iowa last week. “I might not be a math professor, but 99 is greater than 1.” Over at Mike Bloomberg’s campaign headquarters, aides are just as excited about the Sanders surge. This was a hope. Now it’s their plan. If the next few weeks lead to the collapse of other leading campaigns—most crucially, Joe Biden’s, which is running short on money but occupying a similar ideological space as Bloomberg—and a Sanders-inspired freak-out, they believe the former New York City mayor will be the party’s nominee. Like many Democrats who aren’t supporting Sanders, they see a primary process that is setting up the party for a likely defeat.
to use an anlogy the republicans are using opperation chaos where as Bloomberg seems to be going for " screw sanders" and sneak in and try to take it in a 2nd choice brokered convention on account of his wealth and some moderate dems being very worried about down ballot effects of sander's being the nominee

which would absolutely enrage sanders base if a nomination is "stolen" from them again this time by a man worth 60 billion dollars who has already thrown what 503 million into the race and promises to be "self funded" so the dnc wont even have to open their coffers to him if he some how hoodwinks the nomination

We saw what an angry Bernie Sanders supporter did to Congressman Steve scalise on that baseball field.

If the DNC cheats Bernie Sanders out of a well-deserved nomination again...well, that's all I have to say about that.

Did steyer get enough votes to spoil anything in South Carolina, or anywhere else?

id have to try to tally up all the totals but i guess if he was taking votes from any one it would have been biden maby? but more likely he would have done damage to bloomberg then any one else and he spent close to 22 milion in sc?

at least 37k votes in sc ,"7" in iowa,nh 10k,"682" in NV which would probably be his largest impact before dropping out

edit to add and keep in mind super Tuesday early voting has already taken place so yang,harris,styer etc are still on the ballot and that could somewhat skew super Tuesday totals so who knows if the dropped out candidates will effect others numbers with over 3 million cast in ca alone so far

were starting to get delegate math out www.wyff4.com...

The statewide vote in South Carolina accounts for 19 delegates. They are assigned proportionally to candidates based on their vote total. A candidate must secure at least 15 percent of the statewide vote to be eligible to be awarded any of those 19 delegates. The other 35 delegates are also assigned proportionally, but at the U.S. Congressional district level. Each of South Carolina’s seven Congressional districts is assigned delegates based on Democratic vote totals 2016 and 2018 elections.
so biden seems to be getting the lions share with the NBC forecast as follows


Delegate Distribution (NBC News Projection, 9:30 p.m.) Joe Biden - 28 Pete Buttigieg Tulsi Gabbard Amy Klobuchar Bernie Sanders - 4 Tom Steyer Elizabeth Warren
so that keeps sanders in the lead but joe is now at number two slot going into super Tuesday , but as the bulk of the large states have delegates assigned on super Tuesday we will know much more after the 3rd

Bernie got totally whooped. Good development and sign of more Bernie Bros spankings to come. Democrats are not electing a communist or a socialists. The pull hard to center left to closer right just happened.

Biden has no platform no program, it's all just "anti-Trump".

So the dems have to vote somewhere.

It was promising that they didn't give in to the communist Sanders.


Why you are just an ugly faced pony soldier...

Yep. About 40% of the vote has already been cast in Texas and California. The two biggest super Tuesday primaries.

I guess now would be the right time to start a thread about the Criminal Investigation the Ukraine court system has ordered into Joe Biden's extortion within that country.

I suspect a minority woman.


The chubby African-American lady who lost the governorship of Georgia and took two months to give her concession speech?


With all due respect to Miss Abrams who I believe is good-hearted, would be seriously out of her depth as VP candidate, doubt she could even deliver Georgia. Joe has much better women minorities to choose from if he goes that route. Got to be someone that's guaranteed to bring a state or 3 with them.

The dim analysts say Joe has "a lock" on African American democrat voters nationwide. So, he needs to pick a woman who is a minority, but not Black/AA.

That's why my first suggestion was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She has been a huge in-person Supporter of Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail. And AOC has calmed down quite a bit from her early "dumb and radical" days.

As a matter of fact, Google and 90% of the MSM have been presenting Ocasio-Cortez as intelligent, thoughtful, and feisty for the past month.

One month look back of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Google search: www.google.com...:m&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=2ahUKEwiDp72crfjnAhXEURUIHSk6Db8QpwV6BAgSEBw&biw=1536&bih =754

Okay, I was talking out of my ass, I'll admit I know little about this stuff. South Carolina had alot of delegates.

Democrats: 1,991 delegates to win nomination

SANDERS 56
BIDEN 49
BUTTIGIEG 26
WARREN 8
KLOBUCHAR 7

Republicans: 1,276 delegates to win nomination

TRUMP 86
WELD 1

It's looking like after Super Tuesday, Sanders will be front runner but not by a huge margin. Biden might end up looking like a weaker Hillary Clinton in 2016. The DNC should be a riot, no pun intended.

My wife and I said the same thing to each other a couple of hours ago. We live in SC but are only 15 minutes from the Georgia border. We couldn't remember the lady's name either. The VP candidate will have to be a minority (and probably female) to cement black voter turnout. A Democrat can't mathematically win a national election without it ---all other things being equal (no economic collapse, mass virus hysteria, etc.).

One tiny little problem with AOC as a VP. She was born October 13, 1989, which makes her 30 years old and not the 35 needed.

Why would anyone seriously even think that Sanders would pick her? That's absolutely never going to happen just like him being President likely wont happen but even MORE wouldnt happen.

Presidents strategically pick someone you've never heard of like Mike Pence. Obama picked Biden who I believe was a candidate but that's very rare these days. Sanders picking Warren would be more possible but unlikely. The first female VP sounds very progressive though.

Who would Biden pick? Not another candidate, that's for sure. Some smug Governor or Senator from somewhere. He's not going to have a little gay mayor sidekick.
