My choices for Hillary Clinton's running mate

Sorry Bernie brothers but Hillary will be getting the Democratic nomination for president.  Deal with it.

There are a lot of qualified candidates that Hillary could choose from.

In a perfect world it would be Elizabeth Warren, but it's not going to happen.  I just don't see two women on the ticket yet.

Bernie Sanders, that would cause me to stay home on election day.  He has done nothing but try and divide the Democratic party.  He is the liberal version of Donald Trump.

My senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken would be good picks, but they don't have the name recognition.  Al does but I don't think he is electable at the national level.

Julian Castro Secretary of HUD could be the future of the Democratic party, but right now he has little experience and is only 41 (even younger than Sarah Palin)

My picks, drum roll please.....

US Senator from Ohio....Sherrod Brown and US Senator from Virginia Tim Kaine.

Sherrod is a populist like Bernie and is from a swing state.  Tim is also a former governor and has executive experience (more than Sarah and he never quit)

What do you all think?


  1. Virgina Senator Tim Kaine would get my vote. Mr. Kaine has experience as a governor, and he could help Hillary in the Southern states.

  2. I see two problems with a Democratic senator as Hillary's VP:

    1. It's a good idea to have a VP who can be set up to run for President in 4 or 8 years. Are we certain any of those named has the nation-wide credentials to run for Prez in 4 or 8 years?

    2. Pulling a Democrat from the Senate means that's another seat we must defend.

  3. How about Xavier Becerra, US Rep, CA-34 (age 58)?

  4. I think Clinton/Brown 2016 sounds good, SPHASH!

  5. I like all those Dem senators, but we need to keep them in the Senate! I'm leaning toward Tom Perez (currently Secretary of Labor)

  6. Agreed. We need to keep all those Dem Senators/Congress people in Congress.
    Some Dem governor might be good, or maybe a former ambassador, who would have some foreign policy experience maybe.
