Democrats are excited over the possibility of former Vice President Joe Biden considering Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams as his presidential running mate.

According to the Washington Times, Biden and Abrams met privately in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. The meeting sparked anticipation that the two might run on the same ticket.

Biden, 76, who served two terms as former President Barack Obama's closest adviser, has yet to decide if he will join an already crowded field of hopefuls vying for the Democratic nomination.

If Biden does run, he is expected to jump to the head of the pack that includes California Senator Kamala Harris and Texas politician Robert "Beto" O'Rourke.

A person close to Abrams confirmed the meeting, saying it was arranged at Biden's request.

The 2018 Georgia gubernatorial runner-up suggested she might run for president in a tweet following an interview at the South by Southwest Stage conference in Austin, Texas.

"20 years ago, I never thought I'd be ready to run for POTUS before 2028. But life comes at you fast - as I shared in Q&A w @Yamiche at @sxsw. Now 2020 is definitely on the table."

Abrams said she is a better choice to run the country than President Trump.

"I think he's racist, I think he's xenophobic, I think he's homophobic. I think he has disdain for anything that he considers different than the norm," Abrams said. She also said Trump was a "bully" but she doubted the Democrats will defeat him by using his own tactics against him.

"I think beating Donald Trump is the wrong mission. When you're focused on your enemy then you are ignoring your allies."

Abrams, 45, is a lawyer and novelist who served as Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017. The Wisconsin native was the first Black female major-party gubernatorial nominee in the history of the United States.

In February, Abrams became the first Black lesbian to deliver a State of the Union response.

If Biden chooses to run, he will have to overcome the damage done by troubling videos that show him getting uncomfortably close to young girls and women.

    Don't do it Joe

  • MsChocolate

    Anything is possible.

  • iWasteTime

    there are 4500 democrats running
    I cannot

  • Julia Lyons

    I definitely won't vote for this ticket.

  • Phillybruh

    I like very few of the canidates so far the only ones talking good policy are Warren and Buttigieg, However I do believe Biden can take on Trump successfully. And Abrams wouldn't be a bad VP pick.

  • Dakota H

    messy tail for the lesbian part ??

  • therealashland

    damn they like losing huh.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Lol are they forreal...

  • datjerk

    I want to like Stacy, but theres something about her that wont allow it.

  • Julia Lyons

    I know. Can't quite put my finger on it.

  • Kanyade

    Naw, Joe. Choose again.

  • Lolly Asher

    So this is just for show then.

  • ALLMINE?

    Nope. Goodbye GTFOH

  • Alextra Ballard

    I wish Biden had ran in the last election...the momentum was strong...I'm not feeling it ret ni. Him choosing Stacy just ain't gon go good.

  • ALLMINE?

    Girl loose some weight first.. people just expect black women to be fat.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • Vegas1989

    I agree...Joe, Pick someone else..

  • Brooklyn23

    Political day today I see. See you roses tomorrow ?

  • KJBibleonSlavePlantations

    lol,he wants black votes,everyone wants our votes.NO reparations for #ADOS NO VOTES!!!

  • KJBibleonSlavePlantations

    Does he have a g@y agenda like ODUMA!!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Timing just wasnt right in 2016. Hillary had the whole Democratic National Committee pushing for her, even to the point of showing clear favoritism toward her over Bernie Sanders. Joe realized he wasn't going to be able to overcome that.

  • Kanyade

    i've nothing against Abrams, nothing at all, but nope. he need not pick her and she need not pick him---if she decides to join the race with the 50-11 other possible candidates.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I like Stacey but I don't know if this is her moment. I'd probably go with Beto O'Rourke or Kamala Harris first.

  • Kanyade

    Beto. Yup.

  • Phillybruh

    Two white males on the ticket again, might do more harm than picking Abrams. Kamala or one of the other women running.

  • OUBoyWonder

    I'm with you...there's just *something*...I can't place it but I feel it. Weird, huh?

  • WhoKnew

    So uncle Joe is going to use the race card trying to ensure a victory in 2020 by enlisting Stacy "just back away from the pork chop Abrams" as a running mate? Anyone ever hear of the "why not me movement"? Well, call me a narrow-minded bish for thinking this way and I'm here for it because I do me and I speak me. Here are my reasons for the "why not movement."

    Joe does have the political acumen, knowledge and experience to become president and I think he'd do great, but he is a couple of blocks from being 80 years old and I think 65 should be the age cap for running for president? I want someone who in addition to experience and wisdom will be able to have the "physical acuity" as well to conduct his duties as president and not spend all their time in bed in adult daycare, eating McDonald's in bed getting crumbs all over the damned sheets and singing the song "twitter fingers, twitter fingers where are you..." like Dump does.

    Stacy seems to have eating discipline issues or health issues. If her ass is big as a kid's moon bounce because she has discipline issues as far as breaking up with Mr. Pork chop, Mr. Gravy and her side piece Ms. Mash Potato than that's a problem because stress will only increase her eating discipline issues. If her giant sized ass is due to health issues than she needs to reevaluate her goals and put her health first and running for president or vice president isn't how you gain control of you.

  • Cali

    I agree, but I’d take her over Kamala.

  • WhoKnew

    Uncle Joe needed time to come to terms with his son's death from brain cancer. He needed to take that time and mourn and I get that. I believe that if his son had not passed, he would have ran and won.

  • Cali

    Bernie & Elizabeth Warren

  • Phillybruh

    That could make me vote for him, I have such a hard time with him. But I love her, she won't win. But her policies will be adopted.

  • Kanyade

    on that, i agree with you :)

  • Vegas1989

    With Liz yeah...That might work...

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Amerikkka ain't ready ... We better watch out.. it was said that Obama was the last! I'ma live my best life and not GAF shit this political ish!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Nah... Stacy ain't VP'ish!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    LLS!!!

  • Cali

    She’s talking about killing all student loan debt and how the US has preyed on our generation thus f’ing up what we can’t by thus altering US economic growth. She’s also from a working class family. I like what Bernie is talking about too, but I LOVE her and wanted her to run for president vs Hillary.

  • WhoKnew

    If Uncle Joe decides to run, I'd pick Beto O'Rourke as a first choice and Kamala as a second choice. Any woman on the ticket as vice president will help the future for women to become president.

    When I voted this past November, once again, I was gullible to a bunch of lying politicians who promised me that if I voted for them they would immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Dump for those "plain view" crimes or they would force him to resign if they couldn't indict him. Now those very same people are backing away from those "campaign promises", which I knew they would....but I was hoping they wouldn't so I went against my better judgement and voted for them one more time.

    Unfortunately, after this last election, the continued lies from my congress and senate; and the crimes that have been committed in plain sight and nothing has been done to remove this criminal from office, I have finally decided I will no longer vote. Some of the Roses in the Garden persuaded me in November to vote against my better judgement for the very same reasons that have played out. This time there's no talking me out of it. My vote simply does not count and it sure as hell does not matter.

  • hottlanta

    Bernie was never a democrat.

  • hottlanta

    At least all of them can read a book.

  • Vegas1989

    I hear on that...I feel like it's not just her time. And timing plays a big role in things....I'm not hating on a sister. I wanted to be a Political and got my hands in it but my mind wasn't right...Because I all saw was the $$$$...and my daddy was saying that he was raising a legal crook.....LOL....I got a taste of the Politics world when I was in High School... Going downtown in and out of the Mayor's office while he was campaigning....LOL

  • Vegas1989

    You are right. He's Independent

  • TransMichelle

    GREAT !! He's sure to f*ck this up.

  • TransMichelle

    LOL

  • Li-Wright

    Bad pairing. Just bad. It's a stunt. Biden is too old and frankly, I don't think his heart is in it. What does his wife Jill think? IMO she's probably sick of Biden chasing the presidency.

  • Li-Wright

    Vice Presidents are RARELY elected, very rare. It's a big risk!

  • TransMichelle

    True and Ole' Joe should know better. I mean how much more pretentious can they get?

  • Curtis

    I'm for Beto and already donated to his campaign. He's the only candidate GOP is scared of, using millions in negative ads this early say alot.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think Biden and Beto both scare them. A Biden-Beto ticket would beat Trump-Pence any day. Biden would provide the experience and gravitas to the ticket, and Beto would bring energy and galvanize the younger voters.
    And if Beto helps the Democrats win Texas, it would pretty much be a wrap for Trump in 2020.

  • dontgetblocked

    I love it! Great pairing. Old bland Biden and loud-mouth and broke Abrams. That's the ticket! My President will win easily.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Considering his age, if Biden wins in 2020 he should probably just serve 1 term... and then let his VP run in 2024, which would give the Democrats a leg up to hold on to the White House for the next 4 years.

  • Curtis

    I totally agree with you but the media is trying to make it like, in this election minorities and women need to be the nominee for democrats. Let's be real here popular votes doesn't win elections.

  • PrettyMeka08

    No & No.

  • A D N

    lol. Why?

  • facingrealit1

    You do know that as a Senator her and Bernie could have created a bill to eliminate student debt. A president doesn't write laws - they sign them into existence. Three Branches of Government - Legislative - Senate/House - they create bills; Executive - President Signs or Veto Legislative Bills and Judicial - Supreme Court - Ensure laws are constitutional. Bernie been in government over 40 years and haven't done anything but talk. They are in a better position as Senators then they are as President. In short Warren and Bernie are full of crap! They say what will get them elected then shoot us the finger!

  • facingrealit1

    Stacy has CREDIT ISSUES! She don't know how to pay her damn bills! That is what kept her from getting elected as Governor. People thought she'd do the same damn thing Mayor Bottoms is now being accused of doing. Fleecing the coffers.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I could see that with Beto, Harris or Bernie, but I don't think he can win with Stacey right now. I think she should run for GA Senate first. I do see a great future for her in politics.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Biden & Beto would be interesting to watch. I too was discouraged with what happened, but I still want to vote. I feel like so many people gave their lives so I could have that chance.

  • facingrealit1

    Beto have a lot of issues that will prevent him from winning. Hell he couldn't beat Ted Cruz. Below is some of what will be Robert O'Rourke's problem on a national scale which was hidden by Reuters when he ran for Senator. He was also arrested for DUI which he tried to flee from (MADD won't support him) and Trespassing / Burglary:

    On Friday, Reuters revealed that in his youth the 46-year-old O’Rourke had been a member of the
    “hacktivist” group Cult of the Dead Cow. At the time, part of the membership test involved posting essays called t-files to online bulletin boards. Using the name “Psychedelic Warlord,” O’Rourke wrote several t-files, two of which in particular have garnered attention.

    “One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their
    troubles,” one essay read. “This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dream.
    As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of
    the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two.”

    “I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head,” O’Rourke
    wrote.

    He also wrote a poem titled the “Song of the Cow,” which asks a “sacred Cow” to perform a
    number of bizarre, sexually-tinged acts on a speaker who “live[s] only for eternity, Thirst[s] for the undrinkable.”

    This guy is AN IDIOT!

  • facingrealit1

    He also was hiding from the scandal of his living son dating the dead son wife and moving in with her and her children - leaving his wife and children behind. This same son also have some illegal dealings with China! Uncle Joe household is a mess.

  • facingrealit1

    And he still isn't! He is an Independent and everyone knows it. Also Bernie been in Congress over 40 years and haven't done a damn thing. Not ONE BILL!

  • facingrealit1

    I have a problem with her not paying her bills and running for a position where we are suppose to trust her to pay the states.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    U should put that bumpersticker on your car...IF U want it to come up missing.

  • EyeEmJai

    I wonder why some always focus on his age, then and now, when he and Trump are close in age, yet no one says the same thing about Trump? Was Trump not too old to run while being in his 70s as well?

  • EyeEmJai

    ....but it's just two of them out of 50 lol. Who knows. They had probably spoken of this as senators and it was shot down.

    Executive Branch - you forgot to mention executive orders. This can easily be maneuvered into an executive order...but only a President, not Congress, can do that.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Biden will be 80 in 3 years. Trump will still be in his 70s when his 2nd term ends.

  • Curtis

    George Bush had a Dui and got elected twice. There's no dirt left on Beto which Cruz and his machine wouldn't have uncovered. They tried all the tricks and he almost turned red Texas purple.
    Iowa loves him, New Hampshire too. He has those two early primaries.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    You think Beto's an idiot? Have you seen (and listened to) this guy we have in the White House now? Beto is a straight up genius compared to Donald Trump.

  • Malificent

    Oh gosh not a good combo we won’t win with them.

  • Malificent

    So right!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Trump is already showing signs of mental decline, so he's giving us a good example of why you don't want somebody in there who's too old.
    Just from the way they both speak, it's clear that Biden is a lot sharper mentally than Trump is right now.
    I wouldn't trust Biden to hold up for 8 years as President though. The job is very mentally and physically demanding.

  • Harley

    With his diet of McDonalds and soda we will see

  • PynkCloudz

    I think not

  • rockstar2142

    Gets no louder than your prez boo.

  • rockstar2142

    Agreed. Her future in politics is bright I just think prez is to soon right now & she should focus on local politics first.

  • Eileen

    Really...really? You two just go home!

  • rockstar2142

    I have no issue with it at all. Life happens & sometimes other stuff comes up.

  • rockstar2142

    I’d take them 4500 over trump any day.

  • rockstar2142

    That be a great ticket Beto & Biden.

  • Malificent

  • Cali

  • Babe Miller

    HAWHAW YO people IZ funny................not HAWHAW funny,just funny

  • Blunted25

    All i see when looking at Biden now is flashbacks of him rubbing on those poor little girls. What a disgusting old man.

  • Trace da Ace

    ummm.....ok?

  • iWasteTime

    word ... lololol

  • takenaback

    I hope not. If he wants to win Bernie should be his running mate. BernIe..had millions of votes if Hillary had picked him as her Vice President she would have won. He can put Stacey in his cabinet. BernIe is far left and Joe is center. They will be great together. He can prep Stacey for all kinds of political positions.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Don't do it, Joe.

  • rockstar2142

    Sick of folks bringing up the d.u.i. Bush had one and was elected twice so no big deal.

  • Wile E. Coli

    He could pick Superman.. he's still lose badly.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    ADOS Movement says that's a lie. No tangibles no vote

  • Itzgoingdown2

    ADOS Movement Is going to play a big role in the election. That's what has Democrats shaking in their boots! ????

  • Tahj

    Yes I agree....SMH... I hope someone is advising him other options.

  • Parent

    I would never vote for this pedophile
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzmBjLUUWqE

  • Wildcat34

    Interesting choice. I'd be more inclined to vote for Biden, not necessarily Stacy Abrams. When she was running for Governor hear in Georgia, she just seemed to scripted. Beto is another that is questionable. He is hanging on the notion that he will win votes by his uncanning ability to mirror the swag of Barack Obama. Get your own style! As voters, we have to be more keen in properly vetting these candidates for presidency and not be blinded by desperation.

  • Babe Miller

    She will eat him.

  • KJBibleonSlavePlantations

    not scared for the white devils like a lot of black people!
