August 18, 2020 at 7:37 AM EDTCan Jill Biden help Joe beat Trump?On the disorderly day Joe Biden called Sen. Kamala D. Harris to ask whether she would be his running mate, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcettis phone sounded. As one of 4 co-chairs on Bidens vice-presidential choice committee, Garcetti was one of a handful of individuals privy to that secretive and comprehensive process. On the other end of the line was somebody much more associated with the decision: Bidens better half of 43 years, Jill Biden.So central was Jill Bidens function at the same time that the choice committee had actually provided its preliminary findings to the Bidens as a pair. With Jills input, Joe narrowed the field of more than 20 to the 11 whom he then spoke with one on one. Joe called the other contenders to inform them Harris was his choice, and Jill was the one calling the four selection committee co-chairs to inform them the news.The degree of Jill Bidens impact on huge choices in her other halfs project to unseat President Trump is both strange and not. “Its a marriage” is her standard line, which is to say, obviously theyve talked about this, they bounce things off each other all the time, and we dont get to understand the details.By Jada Yuan and Annie Linskey
