I think that is true. People vote the top of the ticket.

(but, yeah, he is just fine- fit as a fiddle!!)

Well said. Biden is not hiring his VP and he will not be the boss, i.e. he cannot fire the VP after she is elected. This is simply as if you were going to apply for a job that hires people in pairs and you wanted to pick someone you know to come and apply with you.

I'd prefer he doesn't take any out of the Senate to put in his cabinet, either.

If I'm not mistaken, it's been 36 years since a sitting member of the House of Representatives ran for VP. That would seem to imply that the "conventional wisdom" is that representatives don't have enough national recognition to bring in a lot of votes.

You do get that an Op-ed in The Nation is not the same thing as The Nation don't you?

It's a big wrong impression don't you think? I can go the NY Times on any given Sunday and read Op-Eds that profess diametrically opposed opinions. The same is true about The Nation.

Doocy from Fox had an amazing scoop yesterday: "Biden has picked his running mate".

And there's video from Biden (in his bizarre looking basement, I guess) confirming it:

Why Joe Biden Keeps Missing His Own V.P. Deadlines

Well, I figure it can't be too much longer. The Democratic national convention begins begins on Aug. 17.

The argument is that Biden should not pick a former prosecutor or police chief, a criterion that would rule out a number of names on Biden's short list, most notably Kamala Harris, but also Gretchen Whitmer, Val Demmings (why does autocorrect change that to 'Lemmings'?), and Amy Klobuchar.

I simply disagree with the argument. I'm more worried about swing voters than appeasing the far left. Harris has her flaws, but so do all the other choices. So does Biden himself.

The Nation published the argument. You contest that they are not necessarily the arguer. Which I happily concede. You have yet to actually address the argument they published.

I've long believed that politicians are more like each other than they are like the people that vote for them.

Besides, it's possible to tease a future announcement without repeatedly giving specific time frames and then missing them.

So, Whitmer was actually invited out for an in-person interview but still isn't seen as a viable alternative here.

I agree that she is a long shot, but no takers at all is a bit weird.

It's possible...but it doesn't matter. Overall I think Trump is a lazy moron. But he did one thing well and that was manipulate the press. Mark Cuban called him a master at headline porn. Which is the ability to create a new headline that makes people forget about last week's headline.

I never voted because voting on this seems like throwing a dart. I had no idea that Hillary would pick Kaine or that Trump would pick Pence.

I think Trump is notable in politics for being something of a naked singularity. I think most career politicians enjoy a lot more cover from the establishment they contribute to and are a part of. They're also a lot better at concealing their venality and foolishness from the voting public. But Trump has, improbably, made a career out of putting that on display. So he looks a lot different from other politicians because other politicians put a lot more effort into hiding what they really look like.
