    Is it "blatant and open racism" or fact-based assertion?

    Clinton earning 88% of their vote (to Trump's 8%) as compared to Obama's 93% in 2012. That being said, the overwhelming majority of African-Americans did show their support by voting for Clinton, particularly as compared to white Americans, who ultimately won Trump the election by giving him 58% of the white vote.

    Says the Hillary Clinton voter, who still thinks Trump colluded with Russia. Maybe sit this one out, Nate Silver.

    I'm sure your "concern" has nothing to do with the fact that Biden is leading Trump by the biggest margin in polls, including in places like Arizona.
    There's no concern. Biden is a 2 time loser & soon to be 3 time loser. Not only does he stand no chance of beating Trump, I don't think he can win his own party nomination.

    The D's have a better chance with Bernie, than with Biden, but I can't see Bernie getting the nomination either.

    Corporate Democrats like yourself, will happily sell out & vote for Bernie, no matter how much you disagree with his politics. The Bernie Bros have some integrity & will not automatically vote for corporate-crony Biden. That's what makes Bernie the better candidate against Trump.

    That said, I don't think it'll be either of them. They're just pace setters, leading early in the race, designed to fade down the stretch.

    Soooooo, in essence, you agree; the DNC thinks the qualification of either candidate is by far and away secondary to their physical appearance? If so, yes, that certainly seems to be the case.

    There should be an IQ test in order to post there. Geezus are you stupid.

    What's racist about wanting a ticket that reflects the base of the party? As long as the person is competent and qualified who cares if it's a factor between two good candidates?

    Once again the party of old white people, who will have two old white men on their ticket wants to lecture the other side.

    Choosing people based on their skin color is racism. Duh!

    It appears that the reason that posters are discussing wanting a minority on the ticket isn’t for altruistic reasons, but for political and election purposes.

    CRG says Ds are racist because blacks vote for them. In Soviet America (Putin/Trump), racism chooses you!

    And? Paul Ryan was chosen to shore up "fiscal conservatives" LOL. Remember them? Dinosaurs.

    Palin was chosen to fire up the base. Tim Kaine was chosen to help win VA. Both sides choose running mates and sometimes their nominee for reasons other than "he/she would make the best President/VP." Trump included.

    Why is the GOP Congressional delegation so overwhelmingly white? Why so much more so than the general population? Tell me again how this is a Dem issue.
