The Democratic Party candidates have been whittled down to one --- Joe Biden.

Bernie and his followers may continue until the end; however, Joe Biden will be the Democratic Party's final choice. The next important decision for Biden AND the Democratic National Committee will be choosing Biden's running mate to run against Trump.

So far under Perez's leadership the Democrats have floundered without any dynamic improvement. Despite the mid-term election boost they have remained stale and are still stuck in recovery from the 2016 election loss and humiliation by Trump's victory boasts.

We saw how Hillary's choice for VP didn't inspire any surge of new or even old voters. Murphy was a safe nominee, a man of good moral standing who was a fine Senator --- but a bad choice!

So who now, any of those set aside by the primary: Amy, Warren, or as had been occasionally promoted on website sidelines "Joe/Kamala?"

Joe has already committed to a woman as his running mate. Adding diversity to the Democratic ticket is widely seen as a priority for a Party. But perhaps a different kind of diversity should be applied here.

Yes, another group of fine women, some even able to take on Trump verbally; but, what else would there be to change any Republican's Party vote to Democrat?

This campaign should not be turned into mudslinging bargains of accusations which is what the Trump Party (TP) will open fire with each and every day.

No, the way to address this kind of warfare is to show the other side that things can change on their side too and without the necessary hostile takeovers that came with the Trump Brand of politics on the Republican side. Yes we all know how Trump will treat a Democratic woman VP candidate"and worse, who would even care to object anymore?

The Democrats should instead extract the "Sensible" Republicans from the Trump Party and perhaps insure an "American Win" by opening up the voice for that kind of Freedom within the GOP that is presently being muzzled by fear. Unleash its power of Truth!

Strength, Courage, and Wisdom: those are the precious ingredients within our souls that carry us all to the Truth.

Again, did anyone amongst that primary list of women project not just the ability to be Vice President, but to serve well as President if asked?

Yes, they all would do well. However, would they also possess the presidential mettle to help bind the two parties AND lead our country back to its bipartisan normalcy? A "normalcy" that is simply defined by the words we all grew up hearing within the Superman motto, ""Truth, Justice, and the American Way!" ---- Not The Trump Way?

It won't be an easy task. Even if Trump does leave office many Trumpsters may still be left behind; anxious to not only fight the Democrats on every cause but also maintain a chokehold on their own party as well. We saw what the Tea Party did"

These heady times require not just a heroic candidate but a heroic ticket with whom all sides can coalesce behind and support the reconstruction that our government will need to go through following the Great Trump Disaster.

"and if none of the above mentioned Democrats resonate this call, then ""Who, who,"?
