I saw on the news that Biden is contemplating to have Stacy Abrams (Georgia) as his running mate. Shaking my old head.
Sorry having a "black" woman from Georgia will only make the GOP voters more fanatic, so you won't get any votes from their side. Secondly from an "Center State" instead of an "Coastal One" where more "brains" are. Sure she's a good woman, but don't forget we've had Obama, which certainly showed that an huge part of this country is still not ready again for either an "black" President as well an "woman" V.P. Ask McCain about the Palin debacle from Alaska.
I don't think the Dem's have their act together, just about as always. Sorry Biden, even under Obama was not an "strong" V.P. Obama tasked him to do something about "gun" control; he did nothing. At least New Zealand is doing something.

His numbers remain very good, and he appears to be unofficially campaigning through a series high profile public appearances. If the Democratic nomination were held tomorrow, he likely would be the winner, but it is big unknown where things stand a year from now.
I heard the Tax filing day is the focus.
Not being treated well by your govt. ? That's because you're not a billionaire or multi millionaire. I will look after all Americans.
That's the benefits of early / mid April. Communication is key leading into '20. Hopefully AOC will give a second tutorial on social media and the various ways of getting a message out and heard.

How about New Zealand style gun laws? I'm afraid the "sleeping pill" is not worked out yet. Welcome to the most advanced "banana republic".
Here's a few more thoughts about Bernie suspending his campaign, but leaving his name on the ballots:
" Today’s biggest breaking news was that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders suspended his campaign for the Democratic nomination for president. He will keep his name on the rest of the primary ballots, intending to get as many delegates as possible for the Democratic National Convention to enable him to have a say in the party platform, which is exactly what happened in 2016.
This is disappointing to his supporters, but a good move for him and his ideas. Sanders’s strength has always been in inspirational rhetoric rather than in the coalition-building necessary to get legislation passed, and this will enable him to get his ideas into the Democratic argument for the 2020 election while leaving to others the wheeling and dealing it takes to get those ideas into legislative development. Sanders reminds me of Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner of the Civil War era, whose speeches inspired his supporters to take on the institution of human enslavement when few others wanted to touch it, but whose skill set was never in the gritty work of getting legislation passed."
