Editor: Looks like the once proud Democratic party has headed to the bottom pit of humanity with their renewal of sexism and racism. Consider the selection of their candidate for President. VP Biden has promised he would select a woman as his running mate. Sexist! Considering a black woman. Racist! What happened to best qualified, or are we catering to sexist and racist attitude of their party.

Lou is it really identity politics or is it just possible they are the best or certainly equally qualified? For far to long our country has overlooked both women and women of color in positions that have traditionally gone to white males. I've researched the woman Biden is considering and discovered they are quite impressive. They are well educated, well spoken, balanced in their view points, empathetic, and have a host of other character traits that make them quite qualified. Of course if these traits don't matter

to you, than you will vote for Trump no matter who Biden takes as a running mate. Of course that's your plan anyway as your letter to the editor was simply to take a shot at Biden. It's time some just admit, it's no longer just a man's world and that we are overlooking an intellectually vital resource by keeping women in lesser roles. I applaud Biden for what you call identity politics and when I consider leaders like Merkel of Germany and Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand find it would be a refreshing change in American Politics.

Davel2 - You're correct and with tRUMP's help we will probably have our first woman of color as our President for at least 4 years after Mr. Biden's first term - maybe sooner! It took a madman like tRUMP to bring the good out in America, we just had to go through his term and his supporters.

It's funny that you are praising a CEO that bankrupted so many companies! I mean, who bankrupts a casino?! Now he is intent on bankrupting America and the republicans are helping him with their enabling ways. A casino!!! HaHaHa!!

I'm much better off now than 3 1/2 years ago. Same with my friends.

...and then, "one of their own" burns down the Arizona Democrat headquarters building, undoubtedly hoping blame will be pointed towards Republicans. Many Dems were already pointing a finger our direction. So typical of "that crowd."

He dropped that bomb on America months ago when he ignored the virus and said, "it will just go away, we have it under control"...

It's called inclusion, something this country really needs after the white wash gang we've been burdened with for the last 3 1/2 years...

You end up in the hospital facing a major life saving surgery. The head of cardiology tells you there are two surgeons available. One is male, highly respected extremely qualified for the procedure. The other is female, had the proper training and has the credentials, however doesn't have a very good success rate. The head of cardiology tells you the female surgeon will perform your procedure because he promised to "include" her. Just think about it, personally I want the most qualified and I don't care what color or race they are. And before you go off the deep end, my Doctor is female.

HavasuGuy

We're talking politics not surgery, nice try. If you stick to reality anyone would be an improvement over the two fascists in the White House right now. You can see what they've done in 3 1/2 years, are you or America better off today compared to where you were 3 1/2 years ago? Of course not...

Why better, way wealthier.

This is the creation of a win at any cost approach. However, the wrong Black woman will be Biden's defeat! Remember the girl from Alaska?

Objective Dialectic

"This is the creation of a win at any cost approach?" Interesting sentiment. I would argue Trump invented that approach as he is so narcissistic he can't stand the thought of losing. Look at the temper-tantrums he has displayed or the extent that he is willing to lie just to be perceived as being 'right.'

Objective - I tried to post the definition of Narcissistic Behavior from the Mayo Clinic but the editor is too threatened on it being posted here. I guess they think it relates too much to tRUMP and they don't want the readership to see it!

Objective - I tried to post the definition of Narcissistic Behavior from the Mayo Clinic website but the editor doesn't want anyone to see the definition so just google it yourself and tell me who it sounds like to you.

Good point. He figures if he has a black female it will get him both the black vote and womens votes.
