    Democrats really need to get 90% of the black vote and probably 75% of the Hispanic vote in order to be competitive in most states.

    If Biden is kaput, what other candidate can draw out blacks?

    Klobuchar seems unwilling to campaign in S Carolina, focusing on Nevada instead, Sanders is an atheist and most blacks cannot stand atheists. Bootygig is gay, another back voter fail.

    Who else can Dems nominate that has a reasonable chance to get the numbers needed among minority voters?

    Bloomberg looks like a bust too.

    Any suggestions with explanation, please?

    Bernie easily wins 75% of the black vote.

    Well, in a word, none, really.

    So, watch for a PC/Identity Politics-friendly Veep pick.
    • Stacey Abrams
    • Kamala Harris
    • Sally Yates
    • Tammy Duckworth
    • Tulsi Gabbard (although the DNC hates her)
    I'd think that skin color and/or gender will be the highest priority for the potential presidential candidates, above qualifications, issues or anything else.

    The only exception might be Bloomberg, who could be less likely to play that game.

    While I think Tulsi would be a great pick for VP, I just find it so sad that we have to have token leaders to placate the racist factions and tribes among us.

    Why not put Michelle Obama in the VP pool? That might get Barry closer to the WH to be an advisor or chief of staff?

    She'll make more money without having to be a token VP.

    And besides that, she won't have to worry about a reciprocal impeachment / investigation hoax.
