Senator Amy Klobuchar would have been a natural choice for Joe Biden’s VP. She is stable, and non-controversial.
Also, if the Democrats are worried about Minnesota, and they should be now, Klobuchar could help with that too.
Now she is reportedly stepping aside to ensure a woman of color is chosen.
The Democrats are this obsessed with identity politics.

Amy Klobuchar withdraws from Biden VP selection to make room for ‘woman of color’: report
Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced Thursday she was removing herself as a candidate to be former Vice President Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick.
Klobuchar told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell she called Biden Wednesday evening with her decision, saying she believes “this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”
Biden pledged earlier this year to pick a woman to be his running mate as is currently considering about a half dozen candidates, including several women of color.
“After what I’ve seen in my state and what I’ve seen across the country, this is a historic moment and America must seize on this moment,” she said. “There are so many incredibly qualified women. But if you want to heal this nation right now — my party, yes, but our nation — this sure is a hell of a way to do it. And that’s just what I think after being through this in my state.”…
With Klobuchar out of the running for VP, Biden is still reportedly considering Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, former national security adviser Susan Rice, Florida Rep. Val Demings, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
It looks like Klobuchar is getting ready to blame Facebook if Trump wins.
As we approach another election, Facebook isn’t doing enough to stop a repeat of 2016. Sign VP @JoeBiden’s petition to tell Facebook to step up & call your representatives to urge them to pass my Honest Ads Act to hold social media companies accountable.https://t.co/rkbftQADwM
