    I think Trump with the Ukraine and Hunter non-sense, coupled with his own decline makes Biden the candidate with the most baggage. So, I guess I disagree with B-Fly in the thinking that every single remaining candidate has a clear path to wining and beating Trump. Of course, I'd vote and support Biden, but he is currently the candidate that scares me the most. I hope if he doesn't dominate in SC that he drops out, which would clear the way to find the center lane candidate to square off against Bernie.

    As a billionaire who isn't interested in running for president, it is important to me that Biden stays in the race. It is important that I and other billionaires aren't limited to just one candidate. We need options to ensure that our viewpoint is considered. With candidates like Sanders and Warren taking shots and us we really need candidates like Biden and Buttigieg involved to make sure the viewpoint of the excessively wealthy is not lost. We are the forgotten Democrats. Just my 2 cents.

    Why dont candidates pick VPs and bring them along during the primaries? Couldn't this change positive perception more than negative?

    Absolutely not. The choice of VP needs to be a strategic one based on data and polling that won't be reliable while the race remains crowded. And there may be a perceived need to create a "unity ticket" from among the candidates still pursuing the nomination. And there are probably potential running mates who may be the best choice for several of the remaining candidates, such that locking each contender into choosing their own individual running mate now could cut off their ability to team with the best running mate going into the convention.

    I believe I saw an interview recently with Bernie were they asked if he would consider naming a running mate prior to securing the nomination and he said "quite possibly, soon." That would certainly be interesting. If anyone could do it and not suffer backlash from it, it's probably Bernie.

    I agree though that it would likely be a tactical mistake for most candidate to do so early. If nothing else because it gives an air of presumption that might alienate undecided voters. Not to mention that it limits the choices for the potential VP candidate. For example, Stacey Abrams would be a very good VP choice for several candidates, so unless she felt very strongly about one - what motivation would she have to align herself with someone who hasn't won the nomination.

    At best I think we may see someone position themselves for a role similarly to how Julian Castro has affiliated with Warren's campaign, but he has an out if she doesn't win the nomination.

    I think anything less than 1st place in SC will lead to a private phone call from Obama to Biden saying, ‘it’s over’.

    I hope so. Hell, I hope Biden doesn't need the call and recognizes himself he'd need to drop out at that point.
