Amy Klobuchar created several effects with her one statement. She is taking herself out of contention for Biden’s Vice President pick because she thinks Joe should pick a woman of color.
- She can’t be told she wasn’t his pick, since she took herself out of the running.
- She took rival Elizabeth Warren out of the running.
- She boxed Joe into picking a Black woman.
- The Black woman will now be seen as an affirmative action choice instead of the best person for the job.
- The Black woman will raise the identity politics flag for Repubs.
Well done, Amy.
