Today on social media it was suggested that Bernie Sanders would be a logical VP choice. The reasoning is that ½ of his followers are following Hillary and ½ are looking towards Green or Libertarian party votes.
I personally don’t care if they want to hand the Repubs the presidency for 4 or god help us 8 years. They can go get Trump tattoos tonight in my opinion right below their never Hillary tattoos.
Racism and misogyny are alive and breeding in the south. Therefore, I would eliminate Warren immediately. They are in complete disbelief that a black man was elected not once but twice. That followed by a women would blow their minds. The only thing worse than a woman would be two. I have total respect for Warren but as previously said, a cabinet position would be very nice. I think a woman and a white man might still be a workable ticket.
You want that balance of experience but not being too Washington’ish. Youth (somewhat) and delivering a decent state are important as well. Youth because the presidency ages a person 6 years for every 1 served and in the carry your large guns to the city to buy beer day and age..... nobody knows if hateful violence will continue and thrive. Thus a VP choice is more important than ever before.
My pick of 5 in order of importance would be as follows: Tim Kaine, Virginia (58), Sharod Brown, Ohio (63), Tom Vilsack, Iowa (66), James Stavridis, Florida (61), Bernie Sanders, Vermont (74/75). Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Colorado seem to be states we would like a better chance at.
Most important reason to win in 2016 is Supreme Court nominations. Imagine there will be one, but probably 2 or 3.
A Hispanic candidate is fine but if you're a lock to get the votes.....it's not necessary.
