I'm going to have to disagree. I don't think it should be hard to grasp.

So, from a pure politics standpoint, there's no way that Biden chooses former prosecutor from Minnesota, Amy Klobuchar, as VP now, right?

After the report that she declined to discipline this very same cop after prior complaints? No, absolutely not.

Only in America are organized displays of stupidity, selfishness and racism - anti-lock down - deemed the people' right whereas, protest of a grave injustice deemed villainous.

Frank Wilhoit has it spot on - Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit: There must be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect.

[expletive]... Twitter knows Trump won't drop the platform and he can't legally shutdown Twitter.

I’m beginning to think Kamala’s the choice after the Breakfast Club mess. As much as I like Abrams, she’s likely to be considered too green in a crisis with a geriatric top of the ticket.

I think the recent events might hurt Val Demings chances for VP despite her saying, tweeting, and writing an Op-ed in the Wash Post with all the right things.

Warren's seat would be filled by a republican governor, I believe. Can't give up a seat with control of the Senate on the line.

Zero chance.

The twelfth amendment explicitly states that "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." And the twenty-second amendment renders Barack Obama ineligible for the office of President due to having already won two four-year terms.

You could get some constitutional scholars out here to argue that since the 12th amendment came first it's only referring to the original constitutional qualifications for President. 35 years old, natural born citizen, blah blah blah. But that's such a tough argument that I cannot possibly see that holding up in a conservative Supreme Court that hates Obama.
