I don’t know if Rogan says it in the above clip (because I don’t watch/listen to you guys’ video/audio clips...

But he said on his recent podcast that he would vote for Trimp over Biden because Biden is literally descending into senility

There’s so much to unpack there..

1) He does realize that there are other political parties than just the Two Cunt Parties?

2) If Biden is really going daft (I know he is)... will people vote for him anyway? And what does that say about them versus Trimp voters?

3) How many people will actually be voting for Biden’s VP pick, and how does that change his campaign’s calculus? Obviously if he picks the Abrams conspiracy theorist he’s toast. Who does his campaign go with? He’s already said a Ruth Bader Ginsburg would not make the cut for his SCOTUS nomination, so his VP pick is going to be interesting. Does his campaign distract him with an attractive Hospice nurse with big titties and give the nod to a moderate brown female? (Do those even exist?... the GOP has a few, like Nikki... but I don’t think the Dems do)

I was thinking of the same thing last night and if Biden keeps descending into flow blown senility, most people on that side of the isle will be voting on the VP not Biden. And I think it drastically changes his campaign, as you have to take into account that a) Biden might not make it to election and then his VP would need to pick up the reigns (or face off with Sanders if he is still around and not sure if that could even be done or has been done before) or b) he makes it through the election and is elected but is unfit for service. In either case your VP has to have similar appeal to the same demographics as you were courting in the first place. So rather than picking somebody to complement and broaden your base, you are just trying to shore it up and not loose voters.

That is assuming Biden doesn't torpedo his own campaign with some comment.

With Biden it's almost all about the VP pick now. Whether he dies in office or goes senile enough that he ends up being removed with the 25th amendment, I can't think of a time when a President's VP pick was as important as this one, and primarily because there is a good chance the VP will ascend to the Presidency. Maybe Reagan's second term was the closest we've been to this, but Reagan's senility didn't really come out in the primary like it is now with Biden (and heck, Reagan was a youthful 73 years old when campaigning for his second term - Biden's 4 years older at the same point). I agree, Abrams would be a drag on the ticket in that regards. Cortez Masto could be a possibility - she doesn't have much of a track record so she's more of a blank slate, which is advantageous in this regard. Klobuchar (Midwest appeal) and Kamala Harris are the other ones I see as likely.

Given that they could end up POTUS, kind of interesting that putting a person who didn't even make it to the Dem primaries would boost your ticket.

That's kind of the danger with Harris or Klobuchar - how do you put them in there when they fared so poorly versus Sanders in the actual primaries? That's like in a beauty contest having the 3rd or 4th place person jump past the runner up if for some reason the winner couldn't take the crown. Wouldn't that really piss off the Bernie Bros and you do still need them to win in the general. That's why going with a left field pick like a Cortez Masto could work - she never even got into the primaries so she doesn't already have the track record of losing to Bernie.

Judging by moderate conservative comments, Tulsi would be a smart pick at this point. Color, female, leadership, strength, military, reasonable. The question being whether you’d lose the progressives.

If it wasn't for this website I don't think I'd know a thing about Tulsi Gabbard. This has to be one of her biggest bastions of support.

I had thought it might be a Biden-Harris ticket a few months back, but I believe Kamala crapped the bed in the early debates.

I don't see how they get past her law and order background, especially with the stuff that came out in the primaries. She's not going to bring her own demographic into the race as a result. Plus she really ripped into Biden in the debates - hard to see that now being a pairing.

Well it was a fun ride while it lasted, and he's helped shift the party significantly left.

That said, I'm not voting for Biden unless Sanders is VP of choice.

As much as I think Bernie is the FDR type leader we need to bring us out of the impending depression, two septuagenarians on the ticket ain’t gonna fly.

He needs to select a progressive lite with color and perhaps female that holds enough of the left wing and steals enough moderate votes due to Trump’s dumbassery.

Easier said than done.
