A Republican Running Mate? One 2020 Democrat Hasn’t Ruled it Out

The Democrats are pulling out all the stops in their efforts to defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box in 2020, including a stunt that would be unique to our modern political era.

The left is seemingly throwing all of their weight behind Joe Biden, the former Vice President and a centrist of sorts who may be able to wrangle a few midwestern voters away from the incumbent Trump.  But, in order to do so, Biden will have to toe a fine line.

If he appears to be too far on the left, he’ll lose the all-important boomer vote.  If he appears unwilling to unite the nation, he’ll lose the millennials.

In order to solve these problems, Biden could choose a Republican running mate in the race – a novel idea that the former statesman hasn’t ruled out.

Joe Biden told voters in New Hampshire on Monday that he would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate, but added, “I can’t think of one right now.”

Biden discussed the possibility after a woman told the former vice president that if he is the nominee, he will “have to pull out all the stops.”

“Our 21-year-old son said the other night, ‘I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate,” the woman added.

“The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden replied. “Let me explain that. You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now … they’ve got to step up.”

Unity:  Check.

A nod to the right:  Check.

Biden may be onto something here, but it’s perhaps too risky for his PR team at this very moment.
