Amy Klobuchar as his running mate because they say she wouldn't excite black voters - the Minnesota Democrat is defending her previous record as a former tough on crime prosecutor in the Minnesota county where this week a black man in handcuffs died after a white police officer put his knee to the man's throat for several minutes.
