[Politico] The Congressional Black Caucus may have found an answer to its Joe Biden dilemma: Vice President Kamala Harris.
Some black lawmakers are agonizing over whether to back Biden or two members of the close-knit caucus ‐ Sens. Harris and Cory Booker ‐ who are also vying for the White House, according to interviews with a dozen CBC members.
But with the former vice president jumping out to a huge, if early, lead in the polls, several CBC members are warming to the idea of a Biden-Harris ticket to take on President Donald Trump.
"That would be a dream ticket for me, a dream ticket!" said Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.). "If she is not the nominee, that would be a dream ticket for this country."
Harris is everything the 76-year-old Biden is not. The freshman senator from California is younger, a woman and a person of color. As Biden gets dinged for his bipartisan bromides, Harris is winning applause from progressives for her merciless cross-examination of Trump officials.
Joe gonna go down on dat tah roll. Yes'm he is...

I had a couple of Warren / Harris 2020! stickers made up, to go with my new Outback and to screw with people. Maybe, just maybe, a Harris / Abrams 2020! sticker is in order. And note the order of the names.
It looked like this.

She's still talking but is anybody listening? I heard their last speaking engagement in Inglewood, CA was so sparsely attended that tickets went for $2 and they had to put curtains up to hide the vast number of empty seats. Pathetic.

Realistically I bet most of the people around her expected her to stroke out on election night. They clearly didn't read enough about what happened to Stalin to get it done.
