I believe the scuttlebutt that if Biden is the nominee he'll choose an African-American woman.  Politically helpful for the general, as well a nod to Clyburn/Obama.

As was already said, he'll chose Warren,  who will be quick to remind Biden of her  1/1999 % African-American genes.

If Elizabeth Warren can convince Joe Biden to move in her policy direction and as a result, she backs Biden, then I believe Sanders is done. 

Though to Sanders' credit, he appears to have  had a lasting policy influence on the Democratic Party.

Question:  If Biden is the candidate, will he propose Warren as Vice-President?

Rumour has it that that's the DNC's preferred outcome/goal.
 

Interesting. From my observations, leading into Super Tuesday, in announcing her endorsement, he seemed to be giving subtle indications he might go with Amy Klobuchar.
 
that's what Amy dreams of, and she'll end up POTUS!

Probably still high as a kite...
When reached for comment, Chuck D sent the following statement to Billboard: "Flavor chooses to dance for his money and not do benevolent work like this. He has a year to get his act together and get himself straight or he’s out."

In his own statement, a lawyer for Chuck D added, "From a legal standpoint, Chuck could perform as Public Enemy if he ever wanted to; he is the sole owner of the Public Enemy trademark. He originally drew the logo himself in the mid-80’s, is also the creative visionary and the group’s primary songwriter, having written Flavor’s most memorable lines.”

Wall Street cites Bernie Sanders as a rival to the coronavirus as a market risk

 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/investor-challenges-coronavirus-market-turmoil-this-is-a-bernie-sanders-story-215843823.html

 

 

Global markets have swooned as the pathogen spreads to a successive number of countries outside of China, including South Korea, the U.S., Italy, Iran, Germany and Brazil. 

Yet Lee Munson, chief investment officer of Portfolio Wealth Advisors, told Yahoo Finance on Tuesday that the rise in volatility is really “a story about Bernie Sanders.” Munson pointed out that losses in Europe, and more risk-sensitive emerging market assets, have lagged the deep plunge in U.S. markets.

“If this is really about coronavirus today, we should see emerging markets down 4-5% ... but that’s not the case,” he said. “This is about Bernie Sanders, this is about policy, and this is the correction we were looking for ahead of Super Tuesday.”

And just days ago, the president himself — who’s assiduously claimed credit for a market that hit new records just last week — blamed the Vermont senator for the recent downturn.

 

Eurasia Group estimates that Sanders has a 40% chance to secure the nomination, held back by his vulnerabilities as a general election candidate, but sees a 55% chance that a moderate will eventually prevail.

Whether that person is Bloomberg, however, remains to be seen.

 “We thought that Bloomberg was going to be maybe this hope of sanity — not,” the investor told Yahoo Finance. “The guy showed poorly. I think this is all about politics,” Munson said.

Munson pointed to a sharp drop in the UnitedHealth’s (UNH) stock — which plunged by nearly $20 in Tuesday’s session. Sanders’ embrace of a national health care system has unsettled health care investors, and even some companies.

“There’s this thought that a socialist is going to do Medicare-For-All,” Munson explained, echoing RBC’s analysis that showed health care, financials and energy have “the highest degree of risk” under a theoretical Sanders presidency.

“Health Care has been one of Sanders’s signature campaign issues, with his support of Medicare for All, capping prescription drug prices, and elimination of medical debt,” the bank wrote.

The policy backdrop would also be onerous for financials,” RBC wrote — based on his embrace of breaking up big banks, re-establishing financial sector firewalls and eliminating student debt, among other things.

 

 
As I heard someone say very recently: stay calm. 

 
I'm fine either way just pointing out the hypocrisy of reveling in a bad market........or not.

er, um, ... just sayin I am a bit concerned about poll numbers and possible interference regarding Sanders' front runner status.  Sounds like the Biden frontrunner 'sell' we got earlier. Votes appear to be saying differently. Can't shake the sense of being manipulated. Grain of salt and all that.

Almost everyone is (because people have trouble with big-sounding big numbers and innumeracy is common). And Galvani isn't a politician.

The problem isn't just cost/budget. If you deem something enough of a benefit, you'll make it happen by adjusting. If you deem something detrimental, you'll prevent it from happening. The issue then is, who gets to decide?
