Tim Kaine is the favorite to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate

July 21, 2016

 With the Democratic National Convention just days away it is now being reported that Virginia Senator Tim Kaine is the favorite to be Hillary Clinton’s choice to be her running mate. An announcement could come either tomorrow or Saturday. Here is more:

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine has emerged as the leading contender to join the Democratic ticket as Hillary Clinton’s running mate, according to two Democrats, who both cautioned that Clinton has not made a final decision and could yet change directions.

The announcement of Clinton’s pick could come as early as Friday afternoon in Florida, a crucial general election battleground state. The timing is aimed at shifting attention away from the end of Donald Trump’s Republican convention and generating excitement before the start of Clinton’s own convention next week in Philadelphia.

Kaine, 58, has been a favorite for the vice presidential slot since the start of Clinton’s search process. He has been active in the Senate on foreign relations and military affairs and built a reputation for working across the aisle as Virginia’s governor and as mayor of Richmond.

  Stay tuned…

      Perhaps if she had a “grandmotherly voice”, but then again I am not sure if even that would help ease your pain.

      Well, I didn’t watch any of the convention and I am sure not going to listen to the Democratic convention either, just hearing her yell while trying to show enthusiasm sends chills up and down my spine. And not the kind of chills Chris Matthews gets when listening to Obama. 😉
