Default Biden's VP pick

OK everyone gets 1 guess, no repeats.

I'll take Kamala Harris (sorry and too bad I went first)

Personally I'd go Oprah, but Sleepy Joe could write it down backwards and end up with Harpo Marx on the ballots.

It's weird to me that Trump fans seem to want to push this idea that Biden's not all there mentally and that he somehow compares unfavorably to Trump in that regard. So here's a quote from Trump about the coronavirus:

"This will end. This will end. You look at flu season. I said 26,000 people. I never heard of a number like that: 26,000 people, going up to 69,000 people, doctor, you told me before. 69,000 people die every year — from 20 to 69 — every year from the flu. Think of that. That’s incredible. So far, the results of all of this that everybody is reading about — and part of the thing is, you want to keep it the way it is, you don’t want to see panic, because there’s no reason to be panicked about it — but when I mentioned the flu, I asked the various doctors, “Is this just like flu?” Because people die from the flu. And this is very unusual. And it is a little bit different, but in some ways it’s easier and in some ways it’s a little bit tougher, but we have it so well under control, I mean, we really have done a very good job."

Or, when asked about what he would do about the fact that Black people don't trust law enforcement, he says this:

"Trump: They have to get better than what they’ve been doing. I mean obviously that was a terrible thing. And I’ve spoken about it numerous times in various speeches. And what’s interesting is I spoke about it when we launched a very successful rocket — a tremendous program that culminated on that day and obviously it goes on from there.

But I then made a speech and it was a speech about the rocket, and I devoted 25 percent of the speech probably to what happened — or more — to what happened with respect to George — George Floyd, and it was — and then you listen to this, he doesn’t talk about George Floyd. The rocket went off, I then I made a speech, and I talked about George Floyd, but they said he didn’t talk about George Floyd.

Half — maybe even almost half of the speech, but a large portion of the speech was devoted exactly to that. And so, you know, with — with the media you basically — and basically no matter what you do, it’s never going to be good enough. But the people understand it."

I really am not sure you want this campaign to be about the relative mental acuity of the two candidates, despite Trump's ability to repeat "Person, woman, man, camera, TV" on request.

Oh, and I also think it will be Senator Harris, although I really like Stacy Abrams myself and putting an end to voter suppression should be a big priority for Biden.

The stuff biden has said is equally bad. I think everyone agrees that the key for biden to win is to not talk. Thats not a glowing endorsement about what he says is better than trump. .

Who is Biden and what is a VP? Is VP a abbreviation for the bat or ball person?
