I suppose the real news here is Congressman John Lewis saying Joe Biden should pick a woman of color as his runningmate.
It would be good to have a woman of color. It would be good to have a woman. It would be good to have a woman look like the rest of America — smart, gifted, a fighter, a warrior. And we have plenty of able women, some of black, white, Latino, Asian American, Native American. I think the time has long past of making the White House look like the whole of America.
Mayor Bottoms, perhaps? Which would also make the race to succeed Cong. Lewis even more intriguing.
But that will not be soon if Lewis has anything to say about it.
I have a few health problems now, but they will not be with me forever. I plan to travel around America to support [Biden] and be able to speak up and speak out for him. I know what it is to campaign hard and to work hard, and I will be out there working and campaigning for Joe Biden as president of the United States of America.”
