My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
My takeaway is clear from this. If John Kasich was offered the VP and running all foreign and domestic policy in the government, why would we not think the same deal was given to Mike Pence? And that’s a scary thought. Mike Pence is ultra-conservative and very religious. Forget about gay and lesbian rights they’re gone. Forget about the right of a woman to have control over her body, that’s gone. And the list goes on and on and on.
Are we picking a president or a more powerful vice president? I think we learned about the president in the shadows under Dick Cheney. I don’t want to go back to that and I don’t think our country wants to go back to that. When the president doesn’t make decisions then we have no recourse as a people.
A vice-presidential pick is someone that you’re going to have to spend at least until November with and hopefully 4 or 8 more years. A vice presidential pick has to be able to take over if you are unable to do your job as president. A vice-presidential pick should come from your heart. Hillary Clinton has made the decision that Tim Kaine is who she wants to run with and we should support her in every way in this decision. This is who is going to be her partner hopefully for the next 8 years and it needs to be someone she wants and not who would help her win or get her a state.
Congratulations to Tim Kaine and his family and on to the White House with the Clinton Kaine ticket
Last night, during late night with Stephen Colbert, Elizabeth Warren made it clear that she was not the vice-presidential pick. She also announced that she was speaking on Monday night. I am and would be very happy if Tim Kaine is Hillary’s choice. He has a secret weapon. Not only does he check all the boxes regarding his Progressive beliefs but this very American looking man speaks perfect Spanish. We need to make sure that the Latino vote comes out strong for Hillary if we’re going to the feet Donald Trump. And Tim Kaine is a good debater something I don’t think Mike Pence is. So this may not be the ticket that all of you wished for but it’s the ticket that Hillary wants to run with and we have to support her in every way. Let us not forget that this is not just a beauty contest but it’s also the person who may have to take over from Hillary God forbid, and who will hopefully be by her side for the next 8 years.
On the surface Mike Pence may look like a reasonable man. Let’s let’s all think back to 2015 when Indiana passed the anti-gay legislation. He mishandled his role as governor of the state because he’s the governor of everyone. He allowed religion to go into places that it was never meant to go by our founding fathers. He is extremely religious and extremely anti-gay. But two White old man running as the Republican ticket is what is to be expected.
Until Hillary Clinton gets on stage and announces her vice presidential pick all of this is background static. I think that Senator Cory Booker, a true American Hero, would make a great vice presidential pick. Hillary has the luxury I love having a myriad of choices that would be perfect as her vice president. That is not what can be said at all about Donald Trump. Those who would consider becoming Trump’s vice presidential candidate are power hungry and are also ignoring the fact that they are hitting their star to a supernova that’s going to explode in their face.
Hillary will make a choice that is good for the country. Donald Trump will make a choice that is good for Donald Trump.
Is this day was not bizarre enough, Here Comes Carly Fiorina singing to Ted Cruz’s two girls. I am reminded I’m so many scary movies that I’m not going to say anything here. I will just let you Revel in the Splendor of it all. This is going to be one hell of a political season. AVB http://time.com/4310405/carly-fiorina-sings-ted-cruz-video/
