But all things being even close to equal, I'd prefer a non-white, non-male, non-straight and/or non-old person if at all possible
Do you have someone in mind? It's really disappointing to me that Warren seems to have become a non-factor as she seems by far the most prepared to do the job. I'd love to get her onto the ticket at least at the VP. From there, my top preference is just whoever gets the most democratic voters out, but in an ideal world, it'd be someone whose policies line up pretty closely to Bernie, and if he keeps leading the polls I don't see why it shouldn't him.
(This is assuming that, like me, want nothing to do with Biden, for all the reasons listed above, plus all the other creepy stuff.)
IMO, VP is such a neutered position that I wouldn't want Warren to get stuck there. I actually think that's the right spot for one of the younger candidates who doesn't get the nod, to ideally set them up to be able to run with a bigger profile.
It doesn't have to be a neutered position. It all depends on how much of a role policy wise the Prez would allow them
