Walter Block Advice to Bernie Sanders: Offer VP Spot to Michelle Obama
Prof Walter Block emails:
Good report on Bernie and Barack: http://www.targetliberty.com/2016/01/obama-meets-with-bernie-sanders.html
My advice to Bernie if he wants to get the Democratic nomition is to offer to Michelle Obama the Vice Presidency. This would help him in two ways vis a vis Hillary. One, Barack would then support Bernie. Two, Bernie would then shift the black Democratic vote (his major weakness amongst Democratic supporters) from Hillary to the Bernie-Michelle ticket.
