The word on the street is that President Trump has narrowed his picks for a Vice President to two potential names we continue to hear.
Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. Again, these names are nothing new, we have heard them thrown out over and over.
President Trump has publicly stated that he wants a female Vice President, and I get it.
A female would be advantageous to winning a general election. A woman would be a good contrast to President Trump’s pointed and sometimes raucous leadership.
However, it has to be said—winning an election by no means indicates effectiveness in office.
Although I was not convinced at first, I am beginning to come around to Vivek Ramaswamy. The GOP candidate should either be Vice President or President.
Could he be a complete fraud? Maybe. Perhaps my initial instinct on him was the correct one, but he certainly says all the right things.
Choosing a woman is a cheap DEI trick designed to win in November and not much beyond that. Kristi Noem isn’t going to end the FBI or the ATF, nor is Stefanik.
If these women truly were the best people for the job, I would be all in on it. Again, I understand why President Trump wants a woman. He wants to sway voters in any way he can to win in November.
Of course, November is simply the start of the story, and as great as the Trump Presidency was, he has a penchant for choosing the wrong people to populate positions of power around him.
John Bolton, Pompeo, and Pence are just some, to name a few. Hopefully, President Trump chooses the absolute best person for the job and doesn’t simply cater to the DEI crowd.
We don’t need a woman as vice President unless that woman truly is the best person for the job. Here is all the current speculation:
President Trump already knows who his VP is going to be. Who do you think it is? pic.twitter.com/2Wp1igYVUQ

CBS News revealed even more names in addition to Noem and Stefanik:
The surrogates — featuring South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Roseanne Barr, and Eric Trump — are a part of a larger campaign effort to invigorate Trump’s base of caucus-goers across the Hawkeye State and ensure they’ll turn out for Trump on Jan. 15 in the first 2024 presidential nominating contest.
Many hope that Vivek would be the Vice Presidential pick, of course, the Trump campaign has now gone on the offense against Ramaswamy.

According to The New York Post:
Asked about Trump’s rant against Ramaswamy on Saturday, Ramaswamy’s campaign pointed The Post to their candidate’s later statement on X saying he would not “criticize [Trump] in response to this late attack.”
The biotech mogul has previously said he is not a “plan B person,” while Trump said in August that Ramaswamy could be a “very good” vice president.
But I want to know who’s YOUR top pick….
