    Biden is a poor excuse for a presidental candidate. His VP would be the actual president, while Biden eventually figures out what day it is and where he is located

    The best thing for the Dems is if ol Creepy Joe gets the Covid and then they will have an excuse to broker the convention. It is so funny that the Democrats...the party of youth....is run by a bunch of old fogey stogeys!

    I could probably find the answer for this, but I'm hoping someone already knows it. Let's assume that Sleepy Joe names Kamala Harris (someone who I mentioned sometime ago really scares me) as his running mate. Also assume that sometime before the convention, he (or someone else) decides that he really is too addled to be president, so he's withdrawing.

    At the convention, would Harris automatically become the nominee? Or would it truly become an open convention (or whatever the term is) and the delegates would be free to vote for whomever they want? Or is there some other way it would play itself out?

      Open. As the VP nominee she would have no right to be the POTUS nominee unless she also had Biden's blackmail file. [grin]

        I'm pretty sure that if (God forbid) my imaginary ticket of Biden/Harris gets elected but something happens to Biden prior to being inaugurated, Harris would be come President-Elect and would be sworn in next January.

        But I guess there's one more scenario to be considered. Let's assume that after the convention, Biden/Harris is the ticket. What happens then if Biden goes down for the count before the election? Would Harris become the nominee, and if so, would she be able to choose her running mate?

        This whole thing is running circles in my head; I'm paying a helluva lot more attention to what Biden does as far as his running mate is concerned.

        Even if Biden wins in November, I don't think he'll be sworn in. I think (fear?) that whoever he names as #2 on the ticket will become POTUS next January should the Dems win in November.

          If Joe continues to increasingly appear unable to fulfill the job, the Sanders crowd will want to see Sanders declared as the candidate, since he has not released his representatives. If that doesn't happen, we may just see the rise of a new separate party, as the Democrats go the way of the Whigs.

    They finally let Sleepy Joe up out of the basement bunkers to do an interview on his deck and what happens? He gets Goosed!
    His party, his handlers and most importantly his wife should all be ashamed for putting this man through this.

      I agree. They should let poor old Joe go out to pasture. I can't help but think Hillary will be riding his coat tails in at VP candidate. We all know what happens right after he gets elected (mail-in ballots...so, yeah it's a possibility).

    More important is who they pick as their VP candidate, as I would expect to very soon see Joe removed under the 25th amendment for being unable to carry out the job. The problem is that the party wants a vigorous young woman of color, and their choices are: Kamala Harris, as crooked as they come; Stacey Abrams, completely unqualified; and Tulsi Gabbard, whom the party despises. Hillary, as much as she wants the job, is just more baggage. Michelle Obama doesn't want the job.

    They just might try to convince Bernie Sanders to come on as the VP, to try to bring those voters back into the fold. This is going to be a real sideshow.

      Any democrat with a half a brain is well aware it is a losing ticket. Whoever they pick to run with Joe will have to be a complete idiot. PDJT will eat them alive on any debate stage so this entire thought is a non starter.
