I met Rice at a private event... I won't post my thoughts on here as a choice publically here. She is definitely brilliant, but I do not want to say too much more. Anyone can feel free to PM me though.
PM me, I tried pm'ing you....i think Rice would be a great choice, but never met or come close, so i want some solid info from you...thanks.

Back in November I mentioned Susan Rice as a possibility. I think she would be a fine choice.
But is she charismatic enough?

She is super smart, polished, with Biden I think the Dems need some real personality.

I am afraid of another Tim Kaine or Joe Lieberman; a super competent person but does not score high on likability.

If Pence is her counterpart I would call the charisma element a wash or even give a nod to Rice. That and her foreign policy is much needed.

I do think she is engaging and will have some appeal to swing voters who are turned off to the Self-Exalted One's bankrupt presidential character.

Politico has a new article about Susan Rice. Interestingly, her son is an active republican, she swears like a sailor, doesn't seem to have an issue differing to people with expertise, and challenges people (even if she agrees them).

For those of you searching, its not official yet. But i believe Biden is going into a press conference and Harris's name is on the top of his notes sheet
A press release was leaked.

Could be just one of many in the can, but at this point I would simply be shocked if she was not the pick.
