Always leave them wanting more. It should be interesting.

I'd choose Klobuchar, both because I like her and because I think she gives Biden the most of what he needs in November. I like Harris, but we're going to win California no matter what. She'd be my Attorney General and then, if I got my way, Gavin Newsom would appoint either Adam Schiff or, if the GOP manages to unseat her from the House in November, Katie Porter to fill Harris's seat. I like Warren, but I think her talents and temperament are best suited to the Senate, where she can be an effective advocate for what she wants. Also, we're winning Massachusetts without her, and that state has a Republican governor who would appoint a Republican to fill her seat, pending a special election. Since we must retake the Senate, that's too much of a risk. I've been impressed by what I've seen of Stacy Abrams, but many people will think her term as a state rep isn't sufficient experience to serve as VP. Also, we're not winning Georgia, no matter what. Finally, and sadly, she may well alienate the Obama/Trump white male voters Biden will need to win. I wish that weren't true, but it most likely is. That leaves Klobuchar, who seems to be a woman who does not alienate those same Obama/Trump voters, meaning she would help win the Great Lakes states (Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania) that will decide the election. If Biden wins three, he'll be President; if Trump wins three, he'll stay in office. So I choose Klobuchar.
