How Biden & Klobuchar could both become president.

Simple: Biden should pre-announce he’s a 1-termer and name Amy as his running mate … and she should gracefully bow out of the 2020 presidential race and run as Joe’s VP.
=============

I hate to give the Dems useful advice, but…

Imagine a Joe Biden that is old but not cognitively challenged … and is nice and well-intended, not influenced by Ukrainian bribes laundered through his ne’er-do-well son.

Or, at least imagine that Biden’s above shortcomings could be sufficiently minimized or obscured so that voters revert to “It’s just Joe being Joe” and give him a pass.

If that were the case, the Dems dream ticket might be Biden-Klobuchar.

Here’s my logic…

=============

First, I applaud the momentum that Klobuchar has developed … and think that she’s developing a reputation as, perhaps,  the only adult in the Democratic room.

But, I don’t think she’ll get the Dem nomination.  There are too many crosswinds and she doesn’t have the organization in place to knock off Sanders.

That said, she’d make a great VP candidate and might be able to drag Sleepy Joe across the finish line.

============

So, think: Trump-Pence versus Biden-Klobuchar.

Long shot, but maybe Biden-Klobuchar prevail. After all, Biden has the minorities in his hip pocket and Amy would run strong in the rust belt, right?

Biden becomes a figurehead CEO and Klobuchar runs the government as COO … think: Bush – Cheney.

That scenario positions Amy for a run in 2024 … with certifiable experience and an incumbent-type advantage.  Maybe that would be enough to give the Dems 12 years in the White House.

============

More likely outcome: Trump wins.

Still a pretty good situation for Klobuchar.

She’d have a stage to really establish herself as a political household name … and Biden would get tagged with the loss.

Said differently, her time would come in 2024 to try to grab the brass ring.

===============

I’m surprised that TV pundits haven’t jumped on this idea.  They haven’t, so remember where you heard it first.
