[Ed. – I don’t think anyone was really jazzed about Klobuchar, but she was the only one in the running who isn’t a full-blown radical. She’s not up for reelection this year, so she didn’t pull out to concentrate on a senatorial campaign.]
Sen. Amy Klobuchar late Thursday said she personally called Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to advise he pick a woman of color as his running mate, effectively announcing the end of her vice presidential aspirations.
“I truly believe, as I actually told the vice president last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket,” the Minnesota Democrat told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. …
In adding her name to the growing chorus of voices who think Biden should not pick a white woman, Klobuchar’s announcement was widely viewed by Democratic insiders as a blow to the chances of Massachusetts’ Sen Elizabeth Warren, who is a top consideration for Biden.
