Kind of like the relationship Hillary and Obama had in his administration.
Yeah. I don't know but don't think it'd be Harris. A black or other minority woman would be my guess and the best choice imo, but not Harris. I think Abrams, but there it'd be the opposite and instead of Sanders not wanting her it'd more be a question of if she would be willing to do that. I'm wondering if she'll decide to run or not and then if she does and does not become the nominee, then maybe she would accept VP with someone like Sanders or Warren as the nominee.

I certainly wouldn't mind any of the three in either of the positions assuming Abrams isn't having meetings with the Pelosi's of the party.

Edit again: Abrams should really run. She could almost immediately become a front runner or at least be the next Buttigieg (polling wise) imo.

Abrams' definitely has a shot, and has shown signs she's interested in that sort of position. Would she go with Bernie, however? That is the question.

Agreed.

Fuck rent control. Build more goddamn housing.
While I agree with the general sentiment, right now in Minneapolis, the problem we are having is, all that’s getting built are fancy ultra expensive condominiums or high end apartments. No one is building with the goal of “affordable housing”. So I think rent control is going to be needed sometime in the future here, prices keep going up for everyone.

Fancy high end condos keep upper class people from moving into lower class neighborhoods and gentrifying them!

That’s not what’s happening though, those fancy condos and high end apartments ARE moving into middle and lower class neighborhoods here and then our apartments are getting “converted” into more expensive places as well.

Yes, because not enough housing is getting built. If you think that the gentrifiers are gentrifying as their first choice, you misunderstand their motivations- the upper class people move into upper-middle class neighborhoods, which pushes upper-middle into middle, etc. etc. It's why the first wave of gentrification isn't rich people, it's the lower middle class moving into lower class neighborhoods.

Andre Gillum would be a great choice too.
I know he’s not a woman, but I feel like he will be considered too
That's my top choice on nearly every ticket. Gives him clout in the Federal position and he'll be in the Senate plenty. Also puts him in better recognition spot to go back and compete for the Gov or Senate from Florida while having that profile he could also start to whip Florida Dems into shape.

Hell yeah, man is putting in the work for the south. It’ll be hard to argue he’s just doing a repeat of 2016’s campaign.
Yeah he's really turning it around imo. That's probably his team surrounding him at least as much as Sanders himself, but if nothing else it tells me he's picking the right people for the job. Pretty soon some of his detractors are going to have to come up with some brand new narratives to push. I admit though if he was to be attacked on anything, racial/minority issues was a big one that he needed/needs to work on.

This may seem a bit random but I found a clip of biden talking about having to invent an israel if there wasn't any


I think i'm so done with these kinds of politcions. For me the fact that Bernie Sanders is a jewish man against the apartheid methods in which israel was created and is sustained tells me much about the man's sincerity. There's few like him in politics. Very few
