I think the lineup of speakers indicates that Harris is the nominee. It is pretty much a done deal.

Why would Biden pick Susan Rice, whose son is a black Trump supporter?

While I don't really care for most all of them, Susan Rice really turns my stomach over.

It could mean Harris. She could be the Vice President that introduces the Biden family.

Why does Rice's son being a Trump supporter matter?

Nothing as long as her son understands he isn’t black according to Biden.

You don't think being a supporter of your opponent is a problem? Susan Rice's son is the president of the Stanford College Republicans and hosted events such as “Make Stanford Great Again.”

How is that? The Democrats would be nominating Susan Rice, not her son.

In 2016, the VP pick spoke on Wednesday and Hillary the next night. If Harris is scheduled to speak the same night as Biden, that might indicate shes not the VP
