@HooverWhalen: Biden-Romney ticket in 2020: What power arrangements? Other than hatred of Trump, what in common? If this third-party ticket swept, it’d still have only a hundred-odd Electoral College votes.

Photo:This illustration entitled, "News Note: Representative Gardner having invited the entire "Army Reserve" of sixteen men to a dinner, the suggestion of a "Bull Moose Survivor" banquet has been broached.", by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Evening Star on January 26, 1915, depicts former President and 1912 Presidential candidate for the Bull Moose Party Theodore Roosevelt, standing at a table for one, indicative of the only survivor left from the failed Bull Moose Party, which split the Republican vote in the 1912 Presidential Election.

Bill Whalen, Hoover, writes Area 45; in re: J: Looking to 2020: Joe Biden is popular; also Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke; but esp Joe Biden. Surprise: also Mitt Romney. On the same ticket! Teddy Roosevelt created the Bull Moose Party. What would be the power arrangements? What would Biden give Romney? Not domestic or foreign policy. Judges? No obvious way for this to work. . . . The media will run a candidate; I think Biden-Romney. OK, but the problem is, what do they have in common politically? Other than hatred of Trump, what in common? How about common ground for a Supreme Court nominee. Oops — in Ohio.

If this third-party ticket swept, it’d still have only a hundred-odd Electoral College votes. More like a 1992 Perot candidacy. Do we vote for the presidential candidate or the VP?
