Hillary Clinton Picks Tim Kaine As Her VP Choice
July 22, 2016

The New York Times is reporting that Virginia Senator Tim Kaine has won the vice presidential sweepstakes and will be her running mate for the 2016 general election.

In the end, Mrs. Clinton decided Mr. Kaine, 58, a former governor of Virginia who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and speaks fluent Spanish, had the qualifications and background and the personal chemistry with her to make the ticket a success.

Sen. Kaine has been the odds on favorite for some time.

As you know I'm a huge Elizabeth Warren fan and supporter, but I've tweeted many time saying that she'll better serve the progressive movement in Congress rather than be on the ticket.

I'm too exhausted from this week to say much more.
