Did Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have a slip of the tongue or did she just accidentally reveal why she dropped out of the race?

During a recent appearance on behalf of Joe Biden, Klobuchar stopped just short of saying she was joining Joe Biden’s ticket…

Speculation Running Rampant

Joe Biden is already on the record as having stated that he wants his VP to be either a person of color or a woman, if not both.

This led to early speculation that his potential VP was on the debate stage with him at the time.

Kamala Harris was initially deemed a possibility, and she still is, but her chances may have taken a hit when she went after Biden for bussing issues.

She has since kissed and made up with Biden, endorsing him earlier this week, but it still may not be enough to get her on the ticket.

Klobuchar is another thing entirely.

Klobuchar never really attacked Biden and her timely endorsement before Super Tuesday clearly put Biden over the top in Minnesota.

This was a state Sanders was considered to have locked up with the endorsement of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and the polls back that up, until the Klobuchar endorsement.

Who Will Joe Pick?

According to the most recent reports, the top candidates are Klobuchar, Harris, Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Deval Patrick, the former governor of Massachusetts.

When you look at all those names, the one person that stands out politically as having the biggest benefit would still be Klobuchar.

Biden will win Massachusetts regardless of his VP and he will also win California, which leaves us with New Jersey and Minnesota.

In 2016, New Jersey was more or less a walk for Hillary Clinton, which leaves us with Minnesota, a state the Democrats won but only did so by about 44,000 votes.

This state was one of the tighter races and it is a state many believe can be turned red this time around.

That would obviously change if Klobuchar was his running mate, probably turning Minnesota into a walk for Biden.

Klobuchar may say it was a slip of the tongue but when you break it all down, it sure seems like Joe made a backroom deal to lock down Minnesota in both the primary and general election with Klobuchar.

  1. You talk about Biden as if he is a contender for President of the United States? He is not even a contender for his own wife or sister! Mixed them up and cannot put a sentence together coherently> President Trump will eat him up for breakfast . No match whatsoever

  2. I thought Biden promised a woman for VP? How come Booker and Patrick are now listed as possibilities? Patrick was an invisible candidate in the primaries, He announced his candidacy. and then disappeared. Booker did not do much better. From the Democrats perspective , I would agree that Amy Klobuchar makes the most political sense, but word has it that she is a super bitch with her staff. I have always judged someone not how they treat their superiors, but how they interact with their subordinates. Amy is BAD news.
