That a good question. Hmmmm haven't given that much thought. 

Whomever the Party selects as his running mate that he agrees with.

Not Cornel West. Not AOC. Warren or Korbachar are possibilities, there are others.

Won't happen.  

West is an ideologue who has said a lot of silly things to draw attention to himself. he is NOT any sort of politician and he would repel far more voters than he could attract.

In other words, a perfect match for Bernie Sanders.

Amy Klobuchar detests Bernie Sanders and Warren thinks he's a liar. 

 

Warren ran in prat to stop Sanders from becoming the Democratic nominee. She's too smart to go down in the most historic loss in a generation were Sanders to be the nominee---something that will NEVER happen anyway.

Being VP is definitely not Cornel's thing.

It is true that Sanders supporters are most likely smarter than Trumpuppets, who may require constant reminding of why they are surrounded by noisy red-hatted buffoons.

What does "ran in prat' mean?

Warren ran because she wants to be president. Like everyone who runs for president.

No one runs out of spite.

But i do think Trump ran because Obama handed him his ass on a plate at that Press Corps dinner. Trump has a mean little seventh grade mind.

Perhaps Les is more.

 

Sometimes Kingaroo asks dumb questions to suggest that some person is insignificant. Other times, he does this because he is truly ignorant.

You've studied linguistics, what does you education led to conclude about seeing "prat" in such a context?

 

Warren isn't running out of spite. But she does not want Sanders to be the Democratic nominee. As that would destroy our party.

Why would she need to mention Sanders' name at a Sanders' rally?

Bernie Sanders camp blasted AOC’s Iowa rally performance last month, report says

Vulnerable Democrats in swing districts fear Sanders could cost them the House if he’s nominee

Chairman of The American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp weighs in on House Democrats and the Trump impeachment on ‘Outnumbered.’

When U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez filled in for Bernie Sanders at an Iowa campaign rally last month, her performance ended up irritating the Sanders camp, according to a report.

The New York Democrat and fellow Sanders supporter Michael Moore shared top billing at the event in Ames, home of Iowa State University, because Sanders was busy attending President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial in Washington.

BERNIE SANDERS' NATIONAL CAMPAIGN CO-CHAIR: TRUMP UNDERSTANDS WHAT BERNIE IS BUILDING

But Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir wasn’t happy that Ocasio-Cortez neglected to mention Sanders’ name while speaking to the crowd – as Fox News reported at the time – and others on the Sanders team thought the congresswoman went too far by encouraging the crowd not to cooperate with U.S. immigration officials as they pursue illegal immigrants, Vanity Fair reported this week.

“Organizing is about tipping people off if you start to see that ICE and CBP are in communities, to try and keep people safe,” Ocasio-Cortez had said, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection – two agencies that have been at odds with the nation’s “sanctuary cities” and other communities vowing not to cooperate with federal agents on immigration matters.

At the time, Ocasio-Cortez’s immigration comments drew swift criticism from Tom Homan, former acting director of ICE, who called her remarks “dangerous” and “idiotic.”

“I’m disgusted,” Homan said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” “She says you want to tip off the community to keep the community safe? That's what ICE is doing.”

For their part, the Ocasio-Cortez camp was irked when Sanders accepted an endorsement from comedian Joe Rogan, host of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Vanity Fair reported. Critics on the left have accused Rogan of appealing to “white bigots,” as Fox News reported last month.

The 30-year-old Ocasio-Cortez – as well as fellow “Squad” members, U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. – have been key surrogates for the 78-year-old Sanders as he tries to appeal to younger Democratic voters, in competition with 77-year-old Joe Biden and 70-year-old Elizabeth Warren, as the septuagenarians each try to fend off 38-year-old Pete Buttigieg and 59-year-old Amy Klobuchar for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

Ocasio-Cortez didn't comment to Vanity Fair, but whatever tensions may have existed between her and the Sanders camp last month appear to have eased, the article notes. While Ocasio-Cortez was absent from Sanders rallies just prior to the Feb. 3 caucuses, she was back stumping for Sanders in New Hampshire this week.

AOC never mentions Bernie Sanders' name as she and Michael Moore pinch-hit for candidate at Iowa rally

Fox News Flash top headlines for Jan. 24

Fox News Flash top headlines for Jan. 24 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com

With Bernie Sanders tied up in Washington at President Trump's Senate impeachment trial, a couple of his high-profie supporters filled in for him Friday at a campaign rally in Iowa.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and liberal filmmaker Michael Moore shared the duties for the 2020 presidential candidate in Iowa City. But in her speech closing out the event, Ocasio-Cortez -- who first endorsed Sanders back in October -- never once mentioned his name.

The Iowa rally -- in the home city of the University of Iowa -- was held one day after Sanders faced backlash from many Democrats after tweeting support for controversial podcast host Joe Rogan.

After several other guests spoke, Moore stepped up to the podium and began incessantly praising Sanders, an independent U.S. senator from Vermont. Moore claimed that watching Sanders on the campaign trail has made him cry.

“I’m so excited about our possibilities here. Right here in Iowa," Moore said. "Bernie was in Dubuque a couple of weeks ago and I scribbled this down here – I came to tears watching him say this.”

AOC BACKS SANDERS AT NEW YORK RALLY, CREDITS HIM WITH 'FUNDAMENTALLY' CHANGING POLITICS

“It was a Q-and-A at a big town hall and someone asked him if he thought he was too old to be president of the United States [and Bernie said] 'I’ve been saying for months, I’ll tell you what’s too old -- 40 million people in this country not having health care. That’s too old.’”

Moore championed Sanders for his policies on climate change, the minimum wage and his record on civil rights, before claiming Sanders is the only candidate who can defeat President Trump in November.

“We have to crush Donald J. Trump with the truth and with a candidate who is the opposite of Donald J. Trump," he said.

At the end of his speech, Moore introduced Ocasio-Cortez and said she had "inspired" Sanders' second run for the White House.

When Ocasio-Cortez got to the stage, however, she alluded to Sanders but didn't mention his name once.

Instead, she echoed Moore's call to take a risk and said voters shouldn't settle for the status quo.

“It is bold and it is a risk,” she said. “We hedge our bets, we get more of the same. And the same has not been helping. So our job right now is to come together ...We’ve got ten days left, ten days (until the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3)."

The New York Democrat also called for the abolition of two federal immigration agencies -- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). She also advocated for Medicare-for-all, and suggested that political leaders craft the nation's environmental policy around "indigenous wisdom."

“This is not just about how we win, it’s about how we heal," Ocasio-Cortez added. "From our bodies to this land, we are going to need entirely new paradigms of public policy in order to heal."

BERNIE SANDERS CALLS INTO HIS OWN IOWA RALLY ON THE WAY BACK FROM IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

Earlier, Sanders had called in to the rally via phone and encouraged voters to support him in the upcoming caucuses.

The self-described democratic socialist then thanked Ocasio-Cortez and Moore before launching into a list of reasons why he believes he'll win the Democratic presidential nomination.

"We are going to win because we are developing an unprecedented multigenerational, multiracial, working-class movement which is prepared to take on the corporate elite and the entire One Percent and put together an administration that stands for justice," he said. "Economic justice, social justice, racial justice, and environmental justice."

Sanders, who referred to Trump as "the worst president in modern American history," promised to raise the minimum wage, ease restrictions on unions, pass a Medicare-for-all bill, institute Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal proposal, reform the criminal justice system, preserve Roe. V. Wade, legalize marijuana in all 50 states and end the "demonization" of illegal immigrants.

"The time is long overdue for us to have a government an economy that works for all of us," he added. "Not just the One Percent."

With super Tuesday approaching one would think Bernie would need her to campaign for him since there are so many states voting but does he trust her not to steal his thunder?

    I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.
