Stacey Abrams Offers Herself as Biden’s VP
We begin with the speculation over who Joe Biden will pick as his running mate having already said it would be a woman. One possibility getting a lot of attention is the former losing candidate for governor in Georgia, Stacey Abrams, who is making it clear she would like the job and we assess her chances with Andra Gillespie, a Professor of Political Science and the Director of the Institute for the Study of Race and Difference at Emory University. The author of Race and the Obama Administration; Symbols. Substance and Hope, she joins us to discuss how Biden might thread the needle in choosing between the need to get the black vote out at the 2008 and 2012 levels with a black woman on the ticket, or winning over the Bernie voters by choosing Senator Warren who, if chosen, would lose her senate seat to a Republican.
