The list is long
Joe Biden will be Donald Trump’s opponent in the fall 2020 presidential election. He still has to find a vice candidate. Biden definitely wants to get a woman by his side.
Washington – At the United States presidential election* The candidates compete as a team with their vice presidential candidate. Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate, has not yet announced who will run with him and who will take over the vice presidency in the event of an election victory. So far, it is only certain that it should be a woman. In the first week of August, he will make a decision, said Joe Biden on Tuesday.
Whom he chooses should not only influence Bidens Have choices. The decision is also of great importance because of his old age. Would be 78 years Biden old when he takes office. Therefore, it is expected that the Democrat only one term would rule for a long time if he could secure the majority in the election on November 3. The US magazine The Atlantic Biden’s vice described as a “prospective president on hold”.
In the wake of protests against racism and police violence, which were triggered by the white George * killing Black George Floyd *, pressure on Biden to name a non-white candidate increased. Who you choose in the end will depend on several factors: What is the connection between Biden and Person X? Which similarities can make governing easier, which differences increase the chances of an election victory? With which positions does the candidate hit the nerve of the population?
Kamala Harris According to several US media, it has the best chances of running for the presidency. The 55-year-old wanted to go against it in November Trump start. At the beginning it was considered promising candidates, their campaign turned out to be a disappointment. Harris is the second black American woman in history to be elected to the US Senate. It represents California there. Their relationship with Biden is considered good, even if the two rattled on several times in the presidential race.
Was fatal Harris in the election campaign her past as prosecutor and minister of justice. Harris presented himself as an advocate of a fairer criminal justice system – critics accused her of the opposite with regard to decisions during her tenure. So should Harris in several cases ensured that wrongful convictions remained in force despite clear evidence. She could not decisively remove the allegations.
Last sent Harris clear messages: In the Corona crisis, she repeatedly points out that Minorities like African Americans are more affected by the Corona crisis. After the death of the African American George Floyd in a brutal police operation, she played a key role in the police reform of the Democrats in Congress.
The senator Elizabeht Warren also competed with Biden to the Presidential candidacy and had been ahead of national polls for a long time. In March, the former Harvard Law School professor got out of the race and said Biden their support a month later. The 71-year-old from Massachusetts, unlike Biden, has a clearly left agenda. When the campaign ended, she called the fight for more justice in the country the “fight of my life”. She argues for a wealth tax and health insurance for everyone.
It’s going to take bold leadership across the country to get us out of the mess that Donald Trump and Republicans have created. Today, I’m proud to endorse another slate of inspiring leaders who are ready to take on the fight for a better future. Get to know the candidates through the link in my bio and join us in the fight.
The clear ideological differences between Biden and Warren could pay off in the election to secure the votes of skeptical young left-wing voters. At the same time, the couple would run the risk of cheating moderate voters. What also speaks against Warren: that she is a white candidate and also over 70. It is questionable whether Biden with the election Warrens would set the tone that African-American voters would expect from him who gave him important votes in the primaries. In addition, trying to overcome structural racism could be seen as a contradiction to his concern.
The 52-year-old Illinois senator was drastically accused in early July: Tammy Duckworth and other of her Democratic colleagues hated America, said a prominent Fox News presenter. Duckworth countered on Twitter: “Tucker Carlson wants to walk a mile with my legs and then tell me whether I love America or not?” The veteran lost her legs in the 2004 Iraq warwhen the Black Hawk helicopter, of which she was a co-pilot, was hit by an anti-tank missile. Her personal history could be important in the election campaign, she writes New York Times.
When traveling, you’d never be expected to eat your meal in a bathroom stall, yet for many new mothers, that’s the reality they face. Two years ago, with the passage of the FAA Reauthorization Act, Congress took the first step in making air travel easier for new parents by passing my bipartisan FAM Act. Now, we are building upon that success by ensuring small airports and their passengers aren’t left behind. That’s why I’m proud my colleagues passed the bipartisan FAM Improvement Act yesterday, which recognizes that all airports, large, medium and small, can play a role in improving the health of families by supporting breastfeeding travelers.
Duckworth is committed to the interests of veterans, the issues are her education and Health care at heart. She was the first Thai-American to be elected to Congress and the first senator to give birth to a baby in office. The New York Times and Washington Post they are currently in third place behind Warren.
Susan Rice: The African American is a companion to Barack Obama
Susan Rice has been around in speculation Bidens Decision to get more attention last. The 55-year-old African American is a long-time political companion of Barack Obama. During his presidency she was US Ambassador to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013, after which she became a National Security Advisor to the White House. Rice and Biden worked closely together. Her experience in government and foreign policy expertise also speaks for Rice as a vice presidential candidate.
It was a special treat to have my little brother John Rice, founder and CEO of MLT, discuss #ToughLove with me. We are very close, and in many ways my story is his story. Johnny is the best, and I am so proud of him and @MLTOrg, even if sometimes the boy gets on my nerves! Thanks so much to ViacomCBS for hosting us!
Into the office of Secretary of State She didn’t make it: she gave up her ambitions after massive criticism from Republicans. The opposition had accused it of initially misinforming the public and downplaying the act of terrorism following an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. At that time, four US citizens, including the Ambassador to Libya, had been killed.
With regard to their chances of running for the presidency, it is argued that Rice never faced an election and has no campaign experience. In the debate racism and Police violence Rice expressed concern that the moment of importance could be “wasted”. It had to do more than take down the Confederate flags, put controversial monuments in the museum or rename football clubs, she said Washington Post. The results of the debate should therefore go beyond symbolism. “We need systematic reforms to counter systematic racism,” she said – and also expressed support for Biden’s economic and environmental program.
The list is with Harris, Warren, Duckworth and Rice not exhausted. Opportunities are also given to the Mayor of Atlanta: Keisha Lance Bottoms (50) was infected with the corona virus after sharply criticizing the easing of containment measures by Georgia’s governor Brian Kemp. She also took a clear stance during the protests against racism and police violence, especially after the death of African-American Rayshard Brooks as a result of a police operation.
The Congresswoman is also under discussion Val Demings from Florida – by far the largest of the “swing states”, which are decisive for the outcome of the election because they cannot be clearly assigned to any party. The 63-year-old was the first woman to head the Orlando police department. Many see an advantage in their law enforcement experience, others express concern that they are too intertwined with the controversial system. Demings was part of the indictment team in impeachment proceedings against Trump.
Other candidates include the Swing State governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, the governor of New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham, or the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus – an association of African-American MPs – Karen Bass in conversation. Biden could also come as a surprise in the end. He only promises so much: “My government will look like America.” (lb with dpa) * Merkur.de is part of the Ippen-Digital network
