Cory Booker says a woman will be on the Democrats' 2020 ticket.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said Friday that Democrats would include a woman on their 2020 White House ticket, effectively pledging to pick a female vice presidential candidate if he wins the nomination.

Booker, speaking during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, said he was "very confident" Democrats would "make history" with the party's 2020 candidates.

"No matter what, I’m looking you in the eye and saying this: There will be a woman on the ticket. I don’t know if it’s in the vice president’s position or in the president’s position," Booker said.

The big takeaway here is that identity politics trumps everything else with the Democrats. Which is why I see a blood bath coming since the highest polling 2020 Democrats right now are white males.
