The choice of a Vice Presidential running mate is often decided more strategically than it needs to be. In 2008, I was more excited to vote for John McCain when he chose Sarah Palin, but I would have voted for him anyway. Hillary Clinton chose Senator Tim Kaine, who besides being low on scandal, will have his replacement chosen by Clinton administration toady Terry McAuliffe.
We now have two boring White guys, Kaine and Mike Pence, as running mates. That’s probably just as well, since a significant number of voters prefer a meteor of death over Clinton or Trump.
