I told you what I thought about the VP spot already, but can someone tell me what Kaine brings to the table? I realize that many people are releasing information to the press that might not be accurate. Does the country even know who he is? Can he really help in VA? We already have Jim Webb to represent. The fact that he's pro-life should disqualify him right off the bat. And should we even talk about his stance on stem cell research?
Yesterday on WTOP's "Ask the Governor" hour, Governor Kaine said that he opposed using taxpayer money for embryonic stem cell research. Kaine said that he believed "there are huge advances that can be made in adult stem cell research" and that "that's the way to go."
It's fine if he wants a milquetoast pick--that's Obama's choice--but I'd like someone that can actually help the Dems win the election... Evan Bayh is just as boring.
