Ted Cruz made headlines this week by announcing his pick for VP—after losing five contests to Trump. But it gets worse. Cruz has been “mathematically eliminated from winning the GOP nomination [outright, and he] acknowledged [last] Wednesday that a contested convention is his only path to the GOP nomination,” the Hill reported. However, the Cruz campaign didn’t seem to read the fine print, which makes the Republican candidate’s announcement even more of a fail.
... “All 2,472 delegates are unbound when it comes to nominating a VP—meaning they can vote for whomever they want—and it’s not tied to the presidential pick, so even if Cruz and Fiorina want to run together, one of them could end up on the ticket, leaving the other one behind.”
Well, now we almost want Cruz to get the nomination just so we can see this in action. Almost.

Cruz picking a VP when he doesn't even have anything close to the delegate count, just shows how bold and pushy this guy is. It's exactly this kind of arrogance is why many in the Senate can't stand him.

To be kind ...there is something not right with Cruz. I say at least a borderline psychopath, if that is possible.
I'm outta here. Not sure why i posted.
