I think conventional wisdom had already counted Klobuchar out, but I'm kind of glad I don't have to worry about Biden going rogue and picking her anyway.
Most particularly after BLM/Minnesota and her history there - particularly with Chauvin (sp?).
However, Harris has some similar issues from her time in CA. If he goes with her, there will be some hits based on her record as AG and in SF, but she appears to be hitting all the right notes now, and AFAIK, SF has not had quite the same issues with deaths inflicted by police as Minnesota had, so it might not be as inflammatory.
What I really, really don't want to see is Stacey Abrams from GA.
Whoever is VP 100% needs to be ready to be President in the Covid era, especially with Biden's age and his old statement of probably only serving one term. It's going to take longer than that to fix this, and I have zero confidence that Abrams would make a decent Vice President, let alone President, and I have zero confidence that she could win in 2024 if she needs to run at the top.
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
