JOE BIDEN AND STACEY ABRAMS POSSIBLE PAIRING IN NOVEMBER?

ongratulations to Joe Biden for his big win and victory in the last Super Tuesday election. In spite of the pandemic of COVID-19 rattling the psychology of the world, Americans still managed to vote with "social distancing" to ensure the victory of Joe Biden. Joe Biden won convincingly in Arizona, Florida, and Illinois on Super Tuesday! A clear momentum for Joe Biden to clinch the Democratic Party's nomination as a presidential candidate.

In a nutshell, the search for US Vice Presidential candidate will soon begin in the Democratic party. Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams seem to be hypothetically pairing! Stacey Abrams is a Georgian political juggernaut. She understands the art of electioneering campaigns and the political strategies involved in mobilizing people. The United States of America is in another defining moment of her tumultuous history. The forthcoming general election is a collective expectation of the dawn of rueful four years of clownishness in the US presidency. The leadership of America in the eyes of the International community is currently marred and absurd. This time shall pass, and a new day will ultimately emerge again in America.

Before the two-man debate with a remote audience of CNN in Washington on Super Tuesday, rational minds including this writer had postulated that the imminent emergence of Joe Biden in the Democratic party might produce a woman from a pack of astute of women in the Democratic field. It was refreshing news to hear Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Burnie Sanders at the debate, indicating their interest in making a woman their running mate against President Trump in the November election. Among all the pack of brilliant women in the Democratic Party is Stacey Abrams. Stacey Abrams was the former 2018 gubernatorial candidate in the Georgia state election. Stacey Abrams is not only strategic in her political decision, but her power of imagination, astuteness, and mobilization are second to none. Abrams was the first African-American female major-party gubernatorial nominee of the United States. In February 2019, she became the first African-American woman to deliver a response to the State of the Union address in the United States.

Meanwhile, unlike the controversial and boggled November 2016 general election, the choice we make in the forthcoming general election on November 8, 2020, will make or mar the already fragile polarization of American culture and polity. America is known to be a powerful and unique country with the resilience power of imagination and ideas, but the current uncertainty is overwhelmingly disturbing and sad. The global pandemic of COVID-19 is not only scary but it is putting the world at the edge of the ridge or cliff. The forthcoming general election will be an election between today (now) and the future (tomorrow). The presidency of Donald Trump has lacked the necessary leadership to carry along the rest of the world in this time of global crisis. So we must get up! "Let's take back this country from Donald Trump's divisiveness," and restore American leadership roles in the world. "We are the United States of America. There's not a single thing we can't do if we stand together." American exceptionalism remains intact in spite of the current failure of her leadership.

Sadly, the menace of Coronavirus has brought sudden and drastic changes to how we live in the United States. This is not the best moment in America considering her past unmatched social life and tranquility. The candidacy of Joe Biden and the choice of Stacey Abrams as his Vice Presidential candidate will be very reassuring. Biden's inevitable victory in November must bring sanity back to governance in one of the greatest nations on Earth---the United States of America. Joe Biden must look into Stacey Abram's potential choice as a running mate and yield to suggestions being offered at the inner thoughts and circles. The mindfulness of Joe Biden's experiences in the Oval Office, national spotlight and government must be unleashed. Biden must make a well-informed decision.

Though, "American voters are very funny," not sheepish but unpredictable! I am cautiously optimistic of Stacey Abrams's choice as a running mate to Biden, putting into consideration the Hilary Clinton's painful effect of 2016. I would have bet my dollars for the defeat of Donald Trump in the last election as the man was unfit for the US presidency. But the next November will tell us the direction America is heading. Politics sucks everywhere! It's not a game for the clear-minded mind. The honest mind will be rubbished by the mindless politicians and their cronies and voters! I was stunned by how Stacey Abrams was schemed out of the gubernatorial election in Georgia with her formidable status. My fear! The race issue is not factored into the next US general election.

Joe Biden must be strategic in his approach by recruiting the enthusiastic supporters of Senator Burnie Sanders's to his jaundice campaign camp being rejuvenated by Biden momentum. Democrats cannot be lackadaisical if we want to defeat Donald Trump in November. Bernie Sanders's impactful persona on the energy of the millennial must be sorted to energize the youths to vote in order to expunge Donald Trump from the White House in November.

Burnie's political strategy (not revolution) is inevitably crucial now more than before! Joe Biden must leverage every ounce of unity in the Democratic party to bring all the stakeholders together to defeat President Donald Trump in another crucial election in the history of the United States of America.
