Stacey Abrams: I Would Be An Excellent Running Mate For Joe Biden
Since losing Georgia’s governor race, politician Stacey Abrams has used her platform to continue her efforts in a fight for the oppressed people and to ensure future elections are fair.
In an interview featured on Elle.com, Stacey Abrams spoke on
When asked if she would accept an offer from Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams said:
“Yes. I would be honored. I would be an excellent running mate. I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating typically ignored communities.”
Stacey Abrams continued her endorsement by listing past achievements:
“I have a strong history of executive and management experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. I’ve spent 25 years in independent study of foreign policy. I am ready to help advance an agenda of restoring America’s place in the world. If I am selected, I am prepared and excited to serve.”
When reflecting on her lost to Governor Brian Kemp, Stacey Abrams said this about failure:
“I’ve learned that failure is not permanent. My responsibility is to not let failure dissuade me from my core obligations. Sometimes we pursue a challenge thinking it is about our victory, but we don’t know the true purpose until later.”
“Not becoming governor of one state gave me the opportunity to launch a national network in 20 states [in order to fight for fair elections]. We are helping reform democracy in places where it was broken and battered. We are fixing access to a census that the president of the United States tried to destroy. I may not have won the office, but what I was able to earn for the causes I serve has been extraordinary, and beyond anything I could have imagined. Apparently, I’m a really good loser.”
In the interview, Abrams also saluted Joe Biden and said,
“[He] truly [has a] sincere sense of humor. As an introvert, I find it fascinating. His charming gregariousness isn’t just an affect.”
Abram assures citizens that she is capable of serving as a vice president, is given the opportunity.
“The VP’s job is to be chief lieutenant and partner by taking on the roles and responsibilities assigned to you by the president. I am very self-aware, and I know that my résumé…is usually reduced to ‘She didn’t become the governor of Georgia.’ But it is important to understand all the things I did to prepare for that contest. That campaign was not a whim. It was the outcome of decades of deliberate work building my capacity to serve as many people as I could, in the most effective way possible.
My responsibility is to be ready to do the job—to have the core capacities that are embedded in the role. I am able to stand effectively as a partner, to execute a vision, and to serve the vision of the president.”
Her comments come shortly after Joe Biden vowed to select a female as his running mate.
