      According to a report from the Telegraph, Democrat strategists have internal worries about the controversial politician, describing her polling as “underwater” at this point.

      Harris is also struggling with support among significant and influential voting groups, such as young people and Hispanics. An Economist/YouGov poll showed only 36% of respondents between the ages of 18-29 viewed Harris “favorably.”

      If the plan was to try to make her popular while being VP….it’s not working. She’s failing at every task she’s been given to prove herself competent and a leader. Heck, half the time it doesn’t even look like she’s trying.

      That would give Biden the cover to make Klobuchar, or maybe Booker or Warren, his VEEP. Klobuchar was the vanilla ice cream of candidates during the primaries, nobody really hated her, and imo she’d be seen as an acceptable insurance policy to Biden croaking. Making her VEEP would not be handing her the nomination in 2024, she’d still have to fight for it, so that too might make her an easy pill to swallow.

      Honestly though, being offering the position of VEEP like that, and giving up her powerful position as Senator, might not look too tempting to Klobuchar. Warren would bite, because going out as a VEEP would be a great way to end her career as an elected politician. All aboard the gravy train after serving as VEEP. Booker would see the job as his chance to shine, and he’d bite as well.

      This all stuff and nonsense at the moment, but let Biden inescapably be seen by the media friendly to him as being in bad shape, and they somewhat portray him that way, then this issue will get revisited with a deadly seriousness. The gloves would come off in regards Harris past, and that could get ugly in a comprehensive way.

      But at the end of the day, no, because the die has already been cast, and the inertia that goes with it is too powerful to casually change. If they could make Biden President, they can drag Harris across the finish line as well. And though not senile, she’d be just as amenable to the will of the Drakh establishment, as Biden is now.

      She proved she could mop the floor with Harris. But then Tulsi is a bit too honest and uncontrollable to be a proper establishment puppet.

      We need to find a way to have something better than the least common denominators in our “leaders”.

      I am done with the Democratic Party, and Harris (and Biden, Pelosi, etc.) are prime examples of reasons why.  There is nothing to vote FOR there.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      SARCASM.

      If they force her on us in 2024, there will be a landslide win for the Rethugs.

      “Who do you have to blow to get a table/a menu/a refill/etc.” is just going to fall flat*.

      “This was a test of the kind of comedy to expect once people start waking up to the reality that Harris is replacing Biden (should that come to pass). This was only a test. Were Harris getting sworn in you would be directed to Pete Buttigieg’s wine cave, and be expected to calmly stay there until the fallout had settled.”

      *Big Kudos to Harris if she makes that kind of a joke, and then delivers one of her patented hyena like laughs.

      Huh, I just now learned that the hyena laugh signals high stress, typically happening if an enemy is near. That is an eerie fact to stumble on! lol 🙂
