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.”



  1. Who is this WHITE privileged guilt female that we should give her any legitimacy? She is of no consequence. She was the John Kasich of the Democrat Party, ruining it for the other candidates.
    This identity politics manure is an insult to any intelligent voter above the age of 9.

  2. I thought the teaching is that you are born for your time and your place, that the world needs you now. Evidently, in the Democratic party, that is not the case. You can be born too late to even be allowed to be a Vice President. I should feel sad for her.

  3. Biden needs a black Muslim women who is a bald lesbian and is missing one leg in order to get all of the minority votes.

  4. Why is the VP job different to any other serious position? The best person, most suited for the job should be chosen, regardless of whether he or she is white or black or anything in-between.

  5. That’s right. Pick someone who may well be the next president purely on the basis of having the right genitals and skin color. That alone should move any sane person to vote for Trump and Pence, no matter how much Trump turns them off.
