So there's quite a few Trump supporters here, and even a handful of Hillary supporters. If you're one of those people who has already made up their mind as to who to vote for, my question isn't aimed at you. My question is for those who are still undecided.

Who would it take for a candidate to solidify your vote for them? I'll answer my own question for both republicans and democrats.

If Hillary were to nominate either Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders I would likely vote for her. The reason is that they're the two most qualified people in the political sphere to take on the banking industry and actually prevent the next banking disaster we'll inevitably have. Of the two I like the idea of Warren more because age isn't a concern with her. She's young enough to serve as VP for 4 or 8 years and then make her own run at the big office.

On the other hand, Trump could get my vote if he picked someone more suited to foreign policy than he is. I think Rand Paul could be a fantastic pick here. Paul's strengths are that he knows how to get things through a hostile Congress, and he has a strong grasp of geopolitics. I think that's a good blend of person to have in the office because US foreign policy has been fracturing over the past 15 years or so with congress, the military, and the executive branch all seeking to run their own foreign policy around the President. We need a person with the talent and experience to unify the government back into one voice in that area.

Trump seems to have foreign policy pretty well at hand from what I have heard. Put America first in all deals and decisions. That sounds like the job of, you know, the President of the U.S.

As far as Vice-President I would suggest Dr. Carson for Trump since he was the guy I thought should have won for the Republicans in the first place. For Hilary I would pick Nancy Pelosi. It would be comedy gold those two.

I would like to see one of the Pauls or Sen. Sessions for VP. Ron Paul made a quip on twitter about being Secretary of State and the neocons totally flipped.

Ron Paul on Twitter: Neocon Panic Attack! What If Ron Paul Becomes Trump's Secretary of State?



As for someone like Sanders or Warren, Sanders is anathema to the establishment so it will never happen. Warren blatantly lied about being a visible minority (native american) and got something like $200,000 university grant because of it. There is a reason they call her Fauxcahontas. In my opinion she is in the same class as Hillary.

So you're saying that if Hillary nominated Pelosi you would vote for her? Somehow I don't believe that.

Thanks for this interesting and speculative thread. Kinda fun to see if our recommendations would come to light depending on who gets elected POTUS.

First, Hillary. Julián Castro, the current HUD Sec. He brings youth, hispanic/latino understanding and is well respected and understands the 'system'.

Tom Perez: The Labor secretary checks two boxes for Clinton (and, yes, some of vice presidential picking is box-checking): He's well regarded in liberal circles. I do not think Warren is accomplished enough and Bernie is just getting a little to up there in years.

Second, The Donald. Marco Rubio: Rubio is clearly in search of a next step in his political career, and while most insiders raise questions about whether he would accept the vice-presidential nomination, it's still hard for me to imagine anyone turning it down. Rubio could help Trump with outreach to establishment Republicans and in Florida. As a Cuban American, he also might be able to blunt some of Trump's sharpest edges on immigration and avoid an electoral disaster in the Hispanic community.

Newt Gingrich: Seasoned politician. Knows how to compromise and work with congress. Would show that Trump respects the fact he needs the congress to get things done....Newt could help here tremendously.

These picks could possibly swing me to either candidate, right now, I am very unhappy with our choices and may choose to just sit it out.....it all depends.

I concur.

Sarah Palin.

This election is already a complete joke. Might as well add the biggest clown to the circus.

For Hillary I'd like Sarah Palin, that would be great. If Hillary couldn't fulfill her POS duties, the US would have a pretty hot POTUS yeehawwww!

For Trump, I think Jesse Ventura, the guy is clever, quick, has political experience and knows it's all just a big fake show, like wrestling.

Cheers - Dave

Voting Trump. I'd like to see him pick Condi Rice. She compliments his weak points such as foreign policy and internal DC mechanics quite nicely and she's sharp as a tack.

Dr Oz for Trump

Warren for Sanders

Charlie Sheen for Clinton, or maybe Humma

She has no baggage at all. She took over as SOS after the US had already gone into Iraq, so there's really no blame warranted at her job performance from those opposed to that war.

Kal Penn or Jesse Ventura running as VP probably would probably raise a few eyebrows but would be extremely popular and possibly guarantee a win for whoever uses them.

Trump should really find someone like them, someone with public support who people might perceive as someone who would get things done. I think at this point the whole farce has degenerated into a popularity contest and infantile playground insult tournament. Trump especially crossed the line into farcical circus a while back and being realistic about it, he simply will not get elected unless he comes up with some kind of miracle, like a magic VP.

I can see Sanders ending up as VP for Clinton and as doomed as Trump is right now, if he somehow got Sanders to run with him he would win, without a doubt. It's very clear Donald Trump likes and respects Sanders but that # aint mutual.

I think Bernie Sanders would rather be dragged naked by the balls through a field of broken glass rather than be Trumps running mate !

Carson would be Sarah Palin 2.0. So I can totally see Trump choosing him.

She was very wrong on Iraq. Rice is a smart woman but she messed up bad. Due to her role first as NSA and then SoS under Bush, and the way she pushed for torture, plus preemptive military strikes I think adding her to the team would turn the entire election from being about Trump into a referendum on the Bush presidency, which a lot of the country doesn't look on fondly.
