Willie Brown Tells Kamala Harris To ‘Decline’ If Tapped For Biden VP
Mon, 08/10/2020 – 18:55
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown (D) said that if Joe Biden taps her as his running mate, she should decline – as becoming Vice President would curtail her political ambitions.
“Historically, the vice presidency has often ended up being a dead end. For every George H.W. Bush, who ascended from the job to the presidency, there’s an Al Gore, who never got there,” wrote Brown in a Saturday Op-Ed for the San Francisco Chronicle.
“The next few years promise to be a very bumpy ride,” Brown continues. “Barack Obama and the Democrats saved the nation from economic collapse when he took office, and their reward was a blowout loss in the 2010 midterm elections.”
Instead, Kamala would make a better Attorney General, according to the former San Francisco Mayor.
“Given the department’s current disarray under William Barr, just showing up and being halfway sane will make the new AG a hero,” he wrote, adding “Best of all, being attorney general would give Harris enough distance from the White House to still be a viable candidate for the top slot in 2024 or 2028, no matter what the state of the nation.”
Of course Brown – who had an extramarital affair with Harris at the beginning of her career, launching it, fails to note that if Biden were to be unable to perform his duties, or died, we’d be looking at President Harris.
Biden is expected to name a woman as his running mate. Prospective nominees include Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).
