In the current Republican party Ronald Reagan is a dangerous left wing ideogogue
racist little bitch
i have a lot of respect for what Stoneketle has to say. there are very few moments where i have said to my self - i dont necessarily agree with that.
and in this case - as an outsider looking in - i didnt know a whole lot about Kaine. familar with the name but not the details you might say. and Jim has painted a very clear picture of the man itself; i would say it would actually be worth reposting as a full story in its own right, here on C&L to give it more exposure.
the particularly pertinent tactical point made regarding repub governors who would replace warren or brown with a repub choice instead of replacing with a democrat made me shift from thinking 'hmm what was HRC doing there' to a 'yes, she made the right decision there' stance.
theres the oft used saw about losing a battle but winning a war, and i think that is what has happened here; she may have lost the chance to use two very seasoned Democratic operatives but chosen to do something that will not impede winning the election, by not gifting a seat away.
As Martin says he constructs his articles with great thought and this is definitely a highlight of his writing i have seen so far; a cogent and understandable primer to understanding the decision taken. and for all my disappointment over Sanders and what he stood for, Jim is absolutely right - Kaine has already been walking the Bernie talk and will now be someone close to HRC who will remind her of those same values in a Hilary presidency. that is by no means a loss, and certainly a win.
he is by no means perfect (TPP). but i refuse to let the perfect be the enemy of the good, and this is a good pick.
"The lifestyle, the freedoms" where did you live outside of the US fucking Haiti. I live in Australia and we don't have any freedoms we have a police state we shoot unarmed civilians all the time and we disenfranchise minority voters. Let's see what else does the US have that we don't i forgot "The lifestyle, the freedoms".
