Wednesday is usually when we know. 

People are speculating it's Susan Rice since she is not mentioned, but Tim Kaine also had a separate speaking time. When he was announced as VP they just swapped his slot with someone else.

when you say two hours, do you mean two hours per night? just one of these lineups would take over an hour total

Me trying to figure out if there’s any significance to Kamala going right after Biden and his family, even if it’s just a placeholder:

Interesting mix of progressives and neoliberals :billie:

Before you chew me out, don't worry, I'll vote for the lesser evil to get orange man out.  But going forward, I expect more from the centrist democrats.  If nothing changes with Biden in office (if he wins), it'll be full Third/Green Party for me.

Thank god. He is probably one of the most annoying politicians atm and has horrible favorability ratings among anyone normal. He performed horrible in the primary for a reason.

President Biden

:vegas: I’m still praying Beto, Deval Patrick, Kirsten Gillibrand and Tulsi are added!

 

+ we really need to highlight competitive Senate candidates like Jaime Harrison, Amy McGrath, Reverend Warnock, and Cal Cunningham
