As of 10 hours ago... but this is marked as an Opinion column in the Washington Examiner so caveat emptor. But why not?
VP odds: Kamala Harris 5-2, Stacey Abrams 4-1, Amy Klobuchar 5-1
by Paul Bedard March 05, 2020 09:56 AM

Women top the list of favorite Democratic vice presidential picks, with Sen. Kamala Harris in the lead, according to the latest betting odds following Joe Biden’s string of Super Tuesday victories. Eight of the top 10 picks are women, according to BetOnline.ag, one of the world's largest sportsbooks offering political betting markets.

Meanwhile, veteran oddsmaker and author James Murphy said that Biden is the overwhelming favorite in sports markets to win the Democratic nomination from Sen. Bernie Sanders. He said that Biden stands at 15-2 to win the nomination.

But President Trump is still the odds-on favorite to win it all. What’s more, Murphy said that Trump's odds of reelection are the best he’s had now that it looks like Biden will be the competition.

In the emerging vice presidential race, there are lots of choices, said BetOnline's Sportsbook Brand Manager Dave Mason. "There are more than 15 potential Democratic VPs listed in all," he said.

The list:

Harris +250 (5/2)
Stacey Abrams +400 (4/1)
Sen. Amy Klobuchar +500 (5/1)
Sen. Elizabeth Warren +800 (8/1)
Pete Buttigieg +900 (9/1)
Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto +1000 (10/1)
Julian Castro +1200 (12/1)
Ohio Sen. Nina Turner +1400 (14/1)
Sen. Tammy Baldwin +1400 (14/1)
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard +2000 (20/1)
Sen. Cory Booker +2500 (25/1)
Hillary Clinton +2500 (25/1)
Michelle Obama +2500 (25/1)
Beto O'Rourke +2800 (28/1)
Andrew Yang +3300 (33/1)
Sen. Sherrod Brown +5000 (50/1)

Many are suggesting Joe announce a VP early to give voters a fuller picture. Or at least be ready. Michelle Obama, come on down! :lovestruck: :pray: :P (I know never but it's wishing season)

In this hyper fast news world with everybody following, seems like both candidates should have the advantage of having two traveling and rallying.

Any word on who Senator Sanders is considering?

People used to say it was presumptuous, but is it in this media age?

He needs a mainstream VP to balance out the ticket.

But I suspect that there are no nationally recognized democrats who are willing to hitch up to his wagon.

Who in the "mainstream" would pass the Sander's supporters purity test?

I think Sanders is dead man walking after tomorrow and won't pick anyone.

When we think, who has the clout and gravitas to opine on the VP nominee, reckon all Fogbowzers in unison say, "Judge Andrew Napolitano". And "Dick Morris" next. Dick thinks Hillary is running. Here's Nap's brainpower:
Fox News Legal Analyst Thinks Joe Biden May Choose A ‘Surprising’ Running Mate
Andrew Napolitano suggested Barack Obama’s vice president may “do something off the wall.”

By Lee Moran

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano thinks former Vice President Joe Biden may choose a “surprising” running mate, should he secure the Democratic presidential nomination for the 2020 election. “If it were up to me, I would choose a female,” Napolitano said on Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “FOX Across America with Jimmy Failla. But I think there’s a lot of competing factors and former candidates with different levels of influence and approach to President Obama,” he continued. “And the decision might be a little surprising.”

Napolitano suggested Biden “might even reach across the aisle and do something off the wall like John Kasich, who probably agrees with Biden on everything except he’s got an ‘R’ after his name and it will guarantee Joe, Ohio.” “Trump can’t win without Ohio,” added the former New Jersey Superior Court judge.Biden on Tuesday took another step towards becoming the candidate to take on President Donald Trump in November after scoring huge primary victories in Mississippi, Missouri and Michigan.

Elsewhere in the interview, Napolitano explained why he believed Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) 2020 campaign is all but over — and defended Biden from Republicans who attempt to attack him by referencing his verbal gaffes. “He is prone to a slip of the tongue and most of it humorous and all of it is harmless,” said Napolitano, noting how he’d known Biden for 45 years. “And I think the Republicans should be careful what they ask for if they zero in on somebody who is prone to gaffes, the president has his own.”

It's so sweet how Fox News and the GOP wants to help Democrats with helpful advice so they can win. :P

For what its worth, I'm think Castro would be a good choice if Warren does not want the job, which I don't think she does. Harris would be better as AG.

notwithstanding that napolitano is a paid propagandist, that paragraph is everything wrong with the way the press—and even the relatively credible press—covers presidential campaigns like football games. it's grotesque. they're practically incapable of not doing it

I'd like to see him pick Kamala Harris, but I could go with other women. And I think it should be done soon. I don't see why it matters if the primary is over yet. It is beginning to look like, for all intents and purposes, it is.

I like Harris. She and Joe both have two things the Trumpster doesn't:

Dignity and self-control.

And I believe that's what the country wants right now: steely, balanced competence.

One thing being kicked around is that Harris is from California and Democrats always win there, often a candidate is picked who can bring a swing state in. But we'd be really happy with Harris! The only other problem -- will the Birthers allow it? :lol:

Indeed. It seems based on the currect state of the primaries the country wants restoration not revoution.

As to Kamala, I really like her but I don't see the benefit of her being the running mate. She had little support in the primary (people or money) and usually you want your running mate to be a good presidential candidate and I'm not sure she's it. I'm also not sure who is.

I'm guessing some of us haven't seen the Biden-Harris promos that are flooding the intertubes.

Or hear Joe say that he thinks his VP should be someone who has been tested by the presidential campaign.

It's always been either Harris or Abrams, whoever won the nom. Both Biden and Harris are signalling Harris, big time.

Since it seems we are having a wave election, and the wave broke for Biden, I suspect he will announce Harris when Bernie concedes--whenever that is. Maybe sooner, if I'm wrong, and Bernie hangs on for the convention. He needs her to give those law and order stump speeches as soon as possible.

Strategically, I'm thinking Klobuchar. She's not my personal choice, but talking to friends and family back in the *southern-midwest* state of Missouri, (wink wink), it could help with that region. We have to overpower the EC with votes because we all know lots o'dems are going to find themselves magically removed from the rolls next fall.

She had little money in the primary and a system weighted against people with little money. She didn't have Bernie's organization and she didn't have Joe's "save vote" wildcard.

For me, Harris somewhat mitigates an otherwise weak nominee whose best days are behind him.

Those who voted for Biden because he met their perception of the "Beat Trump" electability candidate will love her because she she will tick the "diversity" box. It was "others will vote for Biden, so I'm for Biden." Now it will be "others will be pulled along because Harris is on the ticket."

Keeping in mind that my dream ticket was Warren-Harris.
