It's official. Senator Tim Kaine will be Hillary Clinton's running mate.
I think this is the best pick she could have made. She did exactly what President Obama did in 2008 and picked someone with years of political experience who could actually take over the job if he had to. It also helps that he is a Senator from a state whose governor can replace him with another Democrat shall Secretary Clinton be elected.
Kaine may not be well known to die hard liberals, but I have a feeling they will begin to change their minds after they get to know him more. Imagine watching him host a town hall with a Spanish speaking only audience where no English words are spoken. (Hint--he is fluent in Spanish)
I can go on and on, but I am quite happy with her pick. She chose someone that she trusts and not someone who isn't a blatantly political choice.
Tim Kaine is a certified Deficit Terrorist. He might be a soft Deficit Terrorist, or a Centrist Deficit Terrorist, but that actually might be worse. Those people give Deficit Terrorist ideas more legitimacy than Republicans can extend. Democrats are far more articulate, and only Democrats can sell spending cuts to the Democratic constituency. If Republicans were alone on their Deficit Terrorist nonsense, they would have been destroyed a long time ago.
So good luck with that! :(
