Joe Biden is expected to announce his running mate in the course of this week, and Kamala Harris and Susan Rice are regarded as the two clear favorites to be elected. But if Biden wants to set the strongest possible against Trump and lead US in a new direction, should he choose Elizabeth Warren as his running mate.Simen Bondevik Show more
Biden has publicly mentioned several qualities and qualifications he will add to the reason for his visepresidentvalg. He wants a vice president who has long experience, can contribute to the Bidens political agenda will get attention, and that is ready to take over as president from day one.
Warren meets all of these requirements. She has long experience both in and outside of politics. She was for several years law professor at Harvard University and has also worked for many years as a teacher at the public schools. In 2012, Warren elected as the first female senator from Massachusetts. As a senator, she is known for setting the major banks and companies that exploit the american middle class, to the environment. She also led the efforts to build up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to protect consumers of financial products and services, together with Barack Obama.Yes, he is dangerous Comment
In addition to meeting Bidens wishlist, also complements the Warren Bidens weaknesses. In contrast to him is Warren safely placed on the left of the democratic party. After Trump got the most electors during the election in 2016 has a number of experts concluded that the lack of enthusiasm for Clinton among the left in the party, was one of the main causes of the end. To select Warren as the vice president is the best thing Biden can do to avoid a similar situation in 2020.
Warren also has through a for many years shown a unique ability to engage younger voters. Particularly clear was this during the democratic nominasjonskamp when Warren experienced tremendous support from the younger part of the United states velgermasse.
Several measurements showed that she was the most popular candidate among first time voters and young people who had never voted in a presidential election. Along with Bernie Sanders, she was also the candidate who managed to collect surefire the most money through grasrotdonasjoner, in contrast to Biden and Kamala Harris as, to a much greater extent based on the money they got from the billionaires.Disclosed he here?
But Bidens choice of running mate is all, of course, about more than who has the best appeal for your important voter to turn Trump.
I believe the strongest argument for Warren as the vice president, is that her policies and political plans meet the moment.
Already when she launched presidentkandidaturet her, talked to her about a reconstruction of the economy – and that this time it must be structured so that it works for everyone, not just billionaires and giant companies. When the u.s. economy is now to be rebuilt after koronapandemien and Trump's disastrous policies, need Biden Warrens solutions.
Warren was also the first candidate to present a detailed plan for how coronautbruddet could be defeated – already in January. She is considered still as the leading voice in the Senate in efforts to stop koronapandemien, and has been central in the design of most of the policies that the democrats have gotten the green light for. Warren has also over a long time been a sharp critic of Trump's handling of the virus, long before the majority of americans supported the criticism.
Koronapandemien join a number of political issues where the Warren with their detailed plans, has been ahead of his time, and most experts are unanimous that if the Warrens politics in the area had won up from the start, had the situation in the united STATES have been a completely different now.
The last time Black Lives Matter-the movement strengthened and there will be daily huge demonstrations against racism in the united STATES. And with good reason. The systematic racism and failed justispolitikken, which has characterized the united STATES for a long time, missing none.

Many have therefore argued that it is necessary with a mørkhudet running mate in the time we now stand inside. I believe, however, that the most important consideration when a running mate will be selected, not the color of the skin, but who has delivered for the minority ethnic groups who have been victims of systematic racism and discrimination that permeates the united STATES. Just what has Warren done.
Already in 2015 she gave, as the first and about the only of the major politicians in the united STATES, his full, unconditional support to the Black Lives Matter movement. She defended them repeatedly in public, in contrast to most of her colleagues in the senate – both democrats and republicans.
Warren has also long been among the leading voices in the united STATES in the debate about criminal justice reform. Together with Julian Castro, she was the one in the democratic field, which had the most ambitious plans in this field.
In addition, she has long talked about the racism in the united STATES is about more than a failed justissystem. She said in his defense of Black Lives Matter in 2015, that racism also permeates and sets the prerequisites for the ability to vote, economic resources and inequality, boligpolitikken and greedy and corrupt bankpraksis. Repeatedly she has put forward detailed plans to put an end to it.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?
