Amy Klobuchar Verbal Slip Raises Questions About The Reason She Rallied Behind Biden

Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar appeared to let a very large cat out of the bag during a stump speech for Vice President Joe Biden.

Klobuchar, who was rallying for Biden in Grand Rapids Saturday, appeared to admit that she would be Biden’s choice for vice president.

“Bit of a Freudian slip…while stumping for @JoeBiden just now in Grand Rapids, MI @amyklobuchar says she ‘couldn’t think of a better way to end my candidacy than join the ticket…’ to big applause. She quickly corrected to say ‘join the terrific campaign of Joe Biden,'” NBC’s Amanda Golden tweeted.

Klobuchar, whose immense popularity in her home state may have delivered Minnesota for Biden on Super Tuesday, has been stumping for the former Vice President across the midwest — and may already be on the short list for the VP nod.

I'm not surprised. Lots of us on the boards postulated that they had to give her something large in order to get her to pull out before Super Tuesday. The VP position would do it, I think.

Others on the list include:
OAC
Lizzie with smoke signals
Kamala I'll do anything for a raise
Bloomberg I'll see that and raise you another 500 million
and lest we forget
Mayor Pete who comes in behind.
With all due respect, Cary, none of those candidates (except Mayor Pete) have gotten good traction with voters. Amy has, so that choice would make sense.

Mayor Pete has been promised something -- not the VP slot -- but something significant. Time will show what it is.

Added: AlfaMan, we are thinking similar thoughts!

The only thing they had going for them, was staying in the race. Staying might of made it a brokered convention with Hillary taking the pot.

But instead they stayed until the night before Super Tuesday, not after.

That's sort of sarcasm. Not rebuking.

I wouldn't be surprised. They hope that Klobuchar will help them in the midwest. I'm sure it will make MN tougher for Trump to take.

Warren didn't do well in her own state. Doesn't bring much to the table.

Packed house. They really meant a house. Trump does arenas that hold 15k-20k and packs them in. Having 15-20 people in your house really shouldn't count as a packed house.

Wasn't he given control of the gun debate... ie: the power to take guns away from us....

Slow Joe can't remember who he is, and Amy can't remember what to say. Sounds like a match.

Biden/Klobacahar! Has a great ring to it. NOT. She's as exciting as a bucket of cold water. I wonder when she'll start raising her decibel level like Hildabeast did to make up for her lack of enthusiasm. Remember that flat, screechy, schoolmarm like yell? Like nails on a chalkboard!

Very little would surprise me at this point. I also think TPTB were either not in the know or misled about Biden's mental state.

In any case, their "golden boy" is rapidly losing his marbles. They will have to switch to Plan B, whatever that is.

Others on the list include:
OAC Naw, she's with Bernie
Lizzie with smoke signals Possible but she can't even win her home state
Kamala I'll do anything for a raise But will she let Biden sniff her hair
Bloomberg I'll see that and raise you another 500 million Never going to happen, won't play second fiddle
and lest we forget
Mayor Pete who comes in behind. White male that blacks don't like, not likely

I think Crazy Aunt Betsey is going to hang out behind the scenes until she knows for a fact which way the wind is blowing. This is the first Sunday I haven't heard her scratchy voice on the TV. Mayor Pete is doing the rounds: he was on at least one show this morning. I heard his voice while I was loading the dishwasher.
 
All the dropouts were probably told they would be VP. Then when they all come forward to cash in, the party will pull the rug out and name someone who never ran in the first place.
. . . but all will receive some sort of meaningful consolation prize for being good sports and playing the game . . .

If Biden gets elected, we're in serious trouble. No, not because he's a democrat, but because the guy's clearly losing his marbles. You don't want someone in that condition at the helm. And I frankly think Bernie ain't far behind him.

Maybe a VP slot for either Bernie or Biden, for the DNC convention winner? <cough>

What difference does it make ? Trump will beat the snot out of Joe, so she will be on a sinking ship !
