Why Klobachar is Biden’s Best Bet

Never before in history has a Vice Presidential pick been so important. Joe Biden, clearly lacking the mental health to run the nation, will be handing over much of his power over to his Vice President. While the media focuses on potential candidates such as Stacy Abrams and Gretchen Whitmore, the choice is clear: Joe Biden will undoubtably pick Amy Klobachar for three main reasons.

The first is her ties to the Democratic Party’s donor base. Of all the billionaires backers in the 2020 primary, Klobachar received 33, only behind Biden and Buttigieg. Unlike most of the field, she is economically moderate and has little chance of endangering her donors with socialist programs. Considering Joe Biden is not the person actually making the decision, this reason is probably the most significant.

The second is her appeal to the Midwest. Unlike potential candidates such as Stacy Abrams and Elizabeth Warren, Klobachar has won numerous elections in the Midwest, which is the battleground for 2020. A pick such as Abrams may improve Biden’s standing with black voters, however those are not the voters he needs. The voters he needs are predominately suburban midwestern working class men. Out of all the options available, Klobachar seems the most popular among that voting block.

The third and final reason is her overall personality. Due to his failing image, Biden needs a young, energetic Vice President  that the American people can bond with. Klobachar seems to fit that category, at least somewhat.

As this article was being written, the Joe Biden campaign announced Klobachar would officially start the vetting process to become his Vice President. It now seems more and more likely the decision has already been made. Prepare for a President Klobachar.

You couldn’t make this up. The USA, supposedly the most powerful country on the planet, is likely to elect a senile, sex pesterer, a corrupt, self-confessed blackmailer, who confuses his wife with his sister to lead it. Any person who agrees to be vice president is also living in cloud cuckoo land where access to ‘power’ is the only motivation for getting into politics. What a demonstration of contempt for the public.

This is to some extend weird. Democratic big shots have a golden opportunity for replacing a senile corrupt candidate with another corrupt candidate that at least is articulate, looks intelligent and can offer a quick reply to attacks that will inevitably come. Klobuchar, like Butti[who?] should not be the person as her name is too complicated for an average voter or even an average journalist. Sanders and Gabbard are easy to spell right, although insufficiently corrupt. But with so many Senators, Governors, Congresscritures etc., surely there should be someone better.

“Unlike most of the field, she is economically moderate and has little chance of endangering her donors with socialist programs.” I guess this is precisely the meaning of “sufficiently corrupt”.

Klobuchar is a massive Zionist and apologist for the genocidal/brutal “state” of Israel… For the Duran to post such implicitly pro-Zionist propaganda on Klobuchar perhaps confirms the Duran’s own latent zionist leaning?

Well, I met my brother the other day
I give him my right hand
But just as soon as ever my back-a was turned
He misremembered my name!
Now, do you call that a brother? No, no!
Do you call that a brother? No, no!
Do you call that a brother? No, no!
He misremembered my name!

Amy Klobuchar will go the way of Walter Mondale…remember him? She is dull, no personality, always sides with whatever the Democratic Leader in the Senate says, boring, no ideas of her own, if the wind blows one way, she goes that way or whatever won’t make any waves for her. She is a dedicated Minnesota Liberal who has a record of not doing very much, only doing what is safe for her career and towing the line.
