We may not be certain who the presidential candidate will be but we can almost certainly guess the VP choice.

Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, who has said she plans to be president within the next two decades, said Monday that “of course” she would be honored to be the vice presidential pick of whoever secures the 2020 nomination.
“The first time I was on here I got the question about running as VP during the primary, and I apparently famously said, ‘no, because you don’t run for second in a primary,’” Abrams said on ABC’s “The View.”
“However, because that conversation started, I’m now getting the question a lot from folks and the answer is of course, I would be honored to run as vice president with the nominee.”
Abrams, a former minority leader in the Georgia state House who launched a failed bid for governor in 2018, added that, as a black woman, she’s in an “unusual position” of being considered the possible next vice president.
“It would be doing a disservice to every woman of color, every woman of ambition, every child who wants to think beyond their own space for me to say no, or pretend no, I don’t want it,” Abrams said. “Of course I want it. Of course I want to serve America, of course I want to be a patriot.”
It seems to me that just about every possible Democratic candidate needs a strong black female on their ticket.
I think the only candidate who may be able to count on a solid black turnout is Joe Biden, but even he needs a younger female VP to balance out his ticket.
Every other whitey white candidate needs significant help firing up the African American and Latino voters, and Stacey Abrams is the woman for the job.
It might be possible that if Elizabeth Warren wins she could lean more towards a Cory Booker as her VP, but I still actually think she would do better with Abrams.
And by the way, I have little doubt that Stacey Abrams is going to be president someday.
That woman is determined.
