 My assessment is Cooper would really help in NC which is a pivotal state but he lacks charisma. Buttigieg is a charismatic but currently lacks experience a cabinet position could help but regionally he can't bring IN in to play it's just too far gone but his strong performance in the 2020 Iowa Caucuses shows he does have appeal in the region. Beshear is similar but he has to get reelected in 2023 to be part of the conversation and that is way easier said then done
Beshear is charismatic but Kentucky is even more red then Indiana and it's unclear if he'd have appeal in the Midwest. Castro could maybe help the bleeding Dems are having with Hispanic voters and would help put Texas in play but 2020s shown Texas needs a little longer before it's ready to flip. Yang would help with anti establishment and Asian voters but it's unclear how much appeal he has he also lacks experience like Buttigieg does.
I'd prefer Castro or Yang to be VP but I think Cooper and Buttigieg would be stronger Cooper imo on paper is the best choice.

I expect of these five tickets, Harris/Cooper would perform most strongly, but I'd be more excited if Yang were on the ticket.

Cooper or Beshear. I'm biased towards Beshear for obvious reasons, and he is younger so he's got that going for him. But Cooper has his own strengths, the largest being that he represents a state that we can actually win.

Hot take- Buttigieg. He speaks Spanish and he appeals to moderate voters

All of these (except maybe Yang) can appeal to moderate voters. And after Tim Kaine, do you really think being able to speak Spanish is that big an asset?

Castro is out due to his last name and Buttigieg is out due to SSM issues with AA

Cooper or Castro. But none of these tickets are bad.

Castro as VP to drive back up democratic turnout in Texas, Georgia, and Florida, but preferably someone without Harris on the ticket

Considering how poorly Biden did with hispanics compared to Hillary, yes I'd argue it is a big deal.

I think two minorities on one ticket might aggravate white voters too much, particularly white men. Even Buttigieg paired with Harris might be too much to handle in one election for a lot of the electorate. Beshear doesn't really add much. Cooper is probably the best bet, pick him in the hope that he gives the ticket enough of a boost in North Carolina to flip it. However, I doubt that North Carolina would be the tipping point state and there is no Senate race that year so this isn't that meaningful. Maybe Harris should find someone else.

Harris/Cooper, closely followed by Harris/Buttigeig out of these tickets.

That said, Harris's best choice is a non AOC member of the squad (so probably Ayanna Pressley) in my opinion.
