President by death

Another weird dynamic of the Democrat nomination race is that all the also-rans are fully aware that neither of the decrepits, Ol' Kil or Creepy Joe, is likely to live very long into her or his first term, making a promise of a V-P pick very enticing.  For a dead-ender like Warren, politically ambitious to a pathological level, the promise of V-P is like being elected President, with an automatic leg-up through the immense power of incumbency to win possibly two further elections on her own.

Bloomberg is out as his job of blocking Bernie's taxes on billionaires is considered by him to be done, as the success of Biden means there will surely be a brokered convention.
