    While I'm sure he was pretty racist, Wilson was at least willing to give non-white countries like Japan equal status in the League of Nations as long as they were way way over there, far across the ocean. He only went back on that when he realized it would lose him the southern vote for re-election. I'm not sure all of his predecessors would have been willing to go even that far.

    AS long as it's not Harris or some rando centrist like Tim Kaine was, I'd be happy with Warren and anything left of Warren.

    Honestly I hope Biden picks a young progressive woman, and he croaks or steps away first term, so she can rub with incumbency to secure our first woman president who isn't an ancient troll.

    Hopefully Trump gets covid during the convention and dies on camera.
    what's more likely is he's going to pick somebody toxic like Harris with her hardline stance on "justice" issues and then we're going to see to demented old men rambling at each other for a couple of months, as Bidens campaign manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory again and again. followed by a very muddled election that has a significant lack of legitimacy due to claims of fraud and voter exclusion (a favourite being enormous city voting districts, 3 voting machines with 2 broken and queues so long a lot of inner city voters give up) and trump refusing to stand down.

    oh yea, and the republicans basically just running on full throated fascism that the democrats can't actually address because liberals never can.
    I hope he picks Tammy Duckworth, for several reasons.

    1. Asians have been trending towards Republicans more and more. The embrace of an Asian running mate would show that the Democrats are serious about courting this demographic, and crack the Asian vote.
    2. It's not a black person, so the Republicans couldn't keep hitting the Dems for being beholden to the black vote.
    3. Black voters are fickle. No matter which black running mate you choose, there will be massive whining about picking the wrong black person.
    4. Trump has been very hesitant to talk about Duckworth in a negative way.
    5. She would destroy Pence in any debate.
    Not a bad shout...
    More than any other campaign I think Biden's success/failure will depend on who he picks as a running mate as he's probably going to get annihilated during the debates.

    Nah they'll up his meds before the debates and he'll become more lucid.

    Is the Biden campaign even running ads? I haven't seen anything but Trump and state-level stuff on TV and YouTube on my phone where I don't have adblock.

    The best thing Biden can do at the moment is stay relatively quiet. It's hard to shoot a dead horse. Trump has a shovel and is digging a hole.

    This tbh, and it seems like Biden, unlike Trump, can at least take advice in regard to mainly keeping his mouth shut. There'll come a time when he'll have to start talking but for now, why not let Trump shit himself in public again and again.

    I've seen political consultants talk about Biden ads without seeing any myself, but Trump still has a massive funding advantage and plenty of surrogates who are happy to literally burn money if they think it'll get them 1/100th of a point, where Bidens campaign by necessity has to be more strategic with where/when they do ad buys.

    Adds aren't run nationally anymore, you target the areas where you need to win votes.
    Also with social networks, and their tracking of personal data, you can also target individuals.

    If you are in a democratic state or a leftist, you won't see many if any adds targeting you.

    I like how he mentioned stuff that he can easily see in a interview situation.

    Although, I do wonder who the gender-less "person" was.

    I got a text yesterday from the local Democrats. It seems the Trump campaign has allocated $14 million for TV ads in Minnesota. The Dems were asking for $100k to counter them.

    So in a shocking turn of events, that leaves everyone incredibly surprised, the Jacksonville RNC is cancelled.

    I agree. Following the old mantra of "Never interfere with the enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.". At the same time Biden offers less attack vectors that way. Trump is "best" (if you want to look at it that way) when reacting to someone/something. Not so good, if nothing catches his immediate attention. That's when he starts to make stuff up, because he has to tweet...can...not...resist...

    But then again, he made so many terrible mistakes in the previous campaign, that every single one of them would have cost any other candidate the presidency, so .... vOv

    Like ... how could any woman ever vote for him after that pussy-grabbing audio file? In a sane country, that should have cost him half of the available voter's demographic.
