    Re: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.


    That would mean the average age of the democratic ticket (President and Vice President) would be 74.
    Vastly contrast that with the average age of the republican ticket at 67.5.
    Winning!!!

    ETA: By law (with exceptions) in the US Air Traffic Controllers are required to retire at 56. With the exceptions, age 61.

    I don't care about an "outsider".

    That's what people voted for in Trump, and look how much cronyism we ended up with because of it.

    Re: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.

    Jason, Phil, etc. I think the chances of the Biden campaign picking Tulsi Gabbard for the VP slot were almost as slim as the chances of a libertarian being elected US president in my lifetime.

    Warren has pretty darn good creds with the progressive wing. She's been showing up stumping for him more and more, and in social media and electronic format. I think she also has a great ability to relate to a lot of people. I think it would be a great move. But then I supported her in the primaries.

    Honestly Biden has my vote even if he pulls a McCain with his VP choice.

    Warren isn't exactly a career politician.
    She's not a DNC insider either. She has been critical of both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden in the past.
    From what I understand she was not well liked by the older generation of staffers within the Obama administration either.

    Agreed, but first you have to have high level context to make sure you're asking the right questions.
    You would sound more like a grown up if you stopped crying "personal attack" every 5 minutes.

    Remember last summer talking about my friend Candice Owens? How this group dissed on her cause she isn't falling in line with how leftists think she should think cause you know better and she got called a Uncle Tom. Figures you want to defend that racist shit.

    No, I don’t like her because she is an opportunist with no legitimate background in anything. I don’t generally take my political information from URI dropouts, but many among the Trump cult seem to believe that the less you have studied, the more you know. I’ll take my conservatism from the national Review and any number of other reputable conservative think tanks.

    Being a Trumpster is not being a conservative.

    You didn't even know who she was till today. Degsy didn't have to google her name.
    You tried to get others to dox me.

    1. I didn’t claim to know her, so I actually looked her up. Who she is is obvious.
    2. Hiding behind the screen name is cowardly, step into the light.
    3. You throw that label around so loosely as a catch all for what you disagree with it lost all meaning long ago.
    4. Keyboard badass, sunlight snowflake, that’s you.

    I hope you get back East and we meet up on a group ride, I’m sure it will be a barrel of laughs.

    Warren is a crappy choice, too. She will have no ability to draw votes from independents and moderates, which is what they need. She's also over 70, which doesn't bode well for the next two terms -- we could well end up with an unelected president if Biden and she both age out. Jesus, people, pick someone who CAN SERVE THE OFFICE. Fuck.

    I suspect that Phil's argument will be that you can't independently vote for a VP and vote for a different P. The P "picks" their VP. Pick them together or don't, but you can't separate the choice with the 2 main parties. Other parties do this differently. Other countries do this differently. Some places even allow the P and VP to be of different parties.

    Does the speaker of the house need to win the popular vote? By some arguments the only person who should be president should be the person who wins the popular vote.
    I, personally don't believe that any sort of simple democracy is a rational way to govern at the national level, but others disagree and that's fine.
    In theory someone could be appointed to the house of representatives with a simple declaration from the Governor of the state they represent. The speaker of the house, can be elected by 219 votes.
    I guess "elected" is true, but it also depends on people's definition of elected.
    How many people need to vote for it to be an "election"?

    The VP is elected with the P. If the P goes away and the VP becomes P, then he (or she) will pick a new VP. If the new P goes out, then the VP that was picked becomes P, without ever having been elected, or even run.

    The precedent president was Gerald Ford, who became president without being elected. In his case, it was the VP who got booted out, and he was appointed the new VP, and then took over when Nixon resigned.

    Ah, so the thinking is BOTH Biden and Warren die in office, AOC becomes President and dirt bikes become banned.

    I do not agree that is likely. Possible, sure. But anything is almost always possible.
