With Joe Biden expected to announce his Vice Presidential Nominee next week, a name that had surfaced in the spring through various media outlets such as the Atlantic has come up again in an article in Vox Media:
Former Arizona Governor and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
It is actually wrong that this writer did not include her in the last piece on potential Vice Presidential Candidates.
Napolitano would definitely be an informed and wise pick for Joe Biden. She has:
- Domestic Policy and Governing experience as a twice-elected Governor of Arizona with a strong pragmatic progressive record.
- National Security experience as Barack Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary.
- A former Arizona Attorney General.
- A President of the University of California University System (a post she just left.)
If selected as Bidens Vice Presidential Nominee, she would be a skilled campaigner, an experienced and knowledgable debater against Mike Pence, and more importantly, ready to be President on Day One.
She would also probably bring Arizona into the Democratic orbit and solidify the rest of the Southwest for the Biden Campaign.
Voters will know next week who Joe Biden wants to be the next person a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
Janet Napolitano would be a wise choice.
