    What is so great about Stacey Abrams?

    She has never had the remotest bit of a political career outside of Georgia and couldn't even be elected governor there. She has nothing in her background or her accomplishments that would suggest any qualifications for the executive branch.


    Yet supposedly she is on the short list of possible Vice Presidential choices for several of the contenders for the Democratic nomination.


    Why?

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    I know but for both of these why not Harris? She fills both and she is at least a Senator from a major if not the major state. Not to mention being a great deal more attractive than Abrams.

    Harris = A complete nightmare

    Even the Democrats figured this out.

    She's LESS likable than Hillary.

    LESS.

    it's funny isn't it? one day Rs are talking about how Presidential candidates are old and white. the next, potential VPs female and black.

    it's kind of more weird than funny though.

    Of course it is so they can win in the south, but that said, I find her pleasant. Very upbeat and optimistic. Washington could use someone like that. Wouldn't want her to be POTUS anytime soon though

    Whatever she's doing, it's clearly enough to irritate the cons!

    If you wouldn't want her to be president any time soon, then what business does she have being vice president?
