Report: Joe Biden mulls naming Stacey Abrams his running mate when he enters the 2020 presidential election. That would be a pathetic gimmick. It would be as though he setting himself up for a coronation from day one.
Being named as Biden’s running mate would be a terrible move for Stacey Abrams. It would seem as though she was being used as a convenient prop to deflect from Biden’s stumbles on desegregation, Anita Hill and the 1994 Crime Bill. She shouldn’t allow herself to be packaged, framed and used for political gain.
“The popular Georgia Democrat, who at age 45 is 31 years younger than Biden, would bring diversity and excitement to the ticket — showing voters, in the words of a close source, that Biden “isn’t just another old white guy,” Axios reports.
Abrams raised eyebrows recently when she said she won the Georgia’s gubernatorial race, but “just didn’t get to have the job.” She narrowly lost.
Reaction on Twitter:
Joe Biden, “Where my African American at?”

Stacey Abrams would be playing herself if she became Joe Biden’s free ticket to Black people. He’s trying to use her for his own benefit and promising her the moon. She has no idea what backing Joe’s mouth really means. She might find out if she falls for the Okedoke.

Its a huge mistake , blaze your own trail instead .If Stacey Abrams accepts this spot, her shine would be forever tied to Biden and not because of merit. For a supposedly strong and independent woman , that would be depressing
