VIce Presidential Possibilities

Four Potential African American Presidential Candidates: Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Deval Patrick, Eric Holder

As we start to look ahead to the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination battle, there is the possibility of up to four African Americans running for the Presidency.

Almost certainly running are New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and California Senator Kamala Harris (whose mother is Tamil Indian and father who is from the nation of Jamaica in the Caribbean, so she is mixed race).

Also likely to run is former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and former Attorney General Eric Holder, both close friends of President Barack Obama.

At first thought, the chances of Kamala Harris seem the best, followed by Booker, with lesser chance for Patrick, and even lower chance for Holder.

A likely possibility is that either Harris or Booker might end up as the Vice Presidential nominee at the least.

With a race of maybe 20-25 Democrats announcing, an all time record if that happens, it is very hard this far ahead to project the scenario for what might happen in the winter and spring of 2020, but it is now only 18 months until we are in the heat of the Presidential nominating contest.

Tax Returns: 10 For Vice Presidential Possibilities, Only 2 For Mitt Romney! Is This Not Arrogance?

Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney has refused to give out more than two tax returns–2010, and in October, 2011–as he says that is all that is legally required.

At the same time, it is now revealed that he demanded TEN years of tax returns from Paul Ryan and other Vice Presidential possibilities on his short list.

And other Presidential nominees and Vice Presidential possibilities in the past have regularly given out multiple years of tax returns.

So what Mitt Romney is continuing to say is that he is ENTITLED to set his own rules, and to refuse to provide information that is normally expected, and also to refuse to give specifics on any area of public policy for the future, and that we should trust him!

The answer and will be in November: Sorry, Mr. Romney, but you have shown you are unwilling to be forthright, honest, and transparent! You have taken the attitude of a prima donna, who does not have to follow the rules, and still seems to expect that we, the American people, should entrust you with power and authority and believe in you! However, we are sorry to inform you that you have not met the tests of leadership, and you are, therefore, fired!
