Sanders-Abrams, Why Not?

Silvio Canto, Jr., American Thinker, February 19, 2020

Looking ahead to the Democrat Convention in July, I believe that a Bernie Sanders–Stacey Abrams ticket may come out of Milwaukee.

Yesterday, Abrams said this on The View:

It would be doing a disservice to every woman of color, every woman of ambition…for me to say no,” she adds. “Of course I want it — of course I want to serve America.

My guess is that a lot of Democrats would love to have her serve, too.

Let me give you the following scenario:

First, Sanders is nominated with huge opposition from the party establishment.  Nevertheless, he wins.

Second, Democrats like Kamala Harris, the other black lady, will say no to Sanders’s offer for V.P.  In other words, she will not pick a fight with the establishment and risk 2024 or even her re-election to the U.S. Senate.  Also, she does not want to lose big in November.

Third, Abrams is black, and the delegates, fueled by the Squad, will get her on the ticket.  It will be their way of showing the Establishment that they care more about ideology than the party.

A Sanders-Abrams ticket is very likely.  He will be ridiculed for his leftist positions.  She will have a hard time persuading anyone about being a heartbeat from the presidency.

We will see.  I would not be shocked if Bernie and Stacey share the stage the last night of the convention.

A few weeks later, President Trump and V.P. Pence will share the stage, too.

Sometime in October, V.P. Pence will debate Miss Abrams and confirm that the lady is unqualified for national office.
