Joe Biden all but wrapped up the Democratic nomination with key wins in Florida, Illinois, and Arizona tonight. If we were advising him, which we are not, here is the next steps he should take:
- Get on the phone and bring Bernie in. Promise him a cabinet position as a quid pro quo (yes, a legal and perfectly legit one) to immediate suspend his futile campaign, which is putting voters and poll workers at risk of being infected by the COVID-19 virus.
- Step up the rigorous vetting of the V.P. candidate and appoint her in the next two weeks. We think Stacey Abrams is the best choice if she vets. He owes the African-American community for saving his bacon and Abrams could help turn Georgia blue and flip a Senate seat.
- Continue to act as the shadow President, even stepping it up to a new level. The nation is in dire need of serious leadership as this crisis evolves or, at least, believing it is on the way.
Here are the latest prediction odds for Uncle Joe’s choice for Vice President.
