First Mate for 2020

Susan Rice fits the bill for Biden’s VP running mate. She’s not perfect. But. She does have stellar academic and experiential gravitas. Stanford. Rhodes Scholar. NSA Chief. UN Ambassador. Her bona fides and personality complement Biden’s. Although neither is exciting, they seem compatible. A calming duo for these tumultuous times.

Some will say Rice is not Black enough, with her Jamaican heritage and White husband. Yet. She’s more appealing than Kamala Harris who has a similar pedigree. A clear insider, Rice was born & bred in Washington, D.C. That may be okay for 2020. To have an establishment team as a rudder to navigate the coming rough seas.

Most importantly. She’s the best person to take the helm. If necessary.
