He is considered a "centrist" but lets see what he says during the convention next week.




A centrist is a poor choice if Hillary wants to bring Bernie voters into the fold. That's just my first reaction.


Meh, just like a lot of the people who voted against Trump are now going to vote for Trump, the same goes for Bernie voters.


See my last comment. I do not think Bernie supporters have the chuztpah to not vote for Hillary.

After Trump's speech last night I don't think that Hillary is worried about Bernie's people any more. She is worried about losing Centrists, Moderates, and independents. She could get the vast amount of Bernie supporters, but If she loses the aforementioned groups she's toast. She is scared.


I disagree with all of this. Hillary has a lock on a healthy portion of all of the aforementioned. Plus, she has pretty much every minority voting bloc locked up thanks to Trump's scorched-earth primary campaign that was "refreshingly honest and un-PC!!!!"

I am truly just being objective. i am no Hillary fan.

Kaine is a Roman Catholic too.

More confusion for the anti-religious base.

As my former governor I can tell you he is no centrist. He's just as much a globalist as the wicked witch of Little Rock ever was. Anti -gun, pro -climate change, pro-immigration, Bilderberg material for sure. Not much charisma, unsure how he ever got so far politically except by being a good party yes-man.

2 good reasons to not vote Democratic this year.

Progressives warn Hillary Clinton: Don’t pick Tim Kaine for vice president


But progressives argue a Clinton-Kaine ticket would be a train wreck for the Democratic Party and would dampen enthusiasm among hard-core liberals, some of whom finally have come around to Mrs. Clinton for her tack to the left during a long primary battle with Sen. Bernard Sanders.

They specifically cite Mr. Kaine’s support for the Obama administration-backed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a proposed trade deal that both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders oppose, as a reason why he shouldn’t be considered. This week, Mr. Kaine also signed a bipartisan letter calling for certain sections of the landmark ...

The guy who supports the TPP -- what a surprise. Gee, you know the DNC voted to include the TPP in their platform recently -- and Obama has shown support for it as well -- oh yeah, I think Obama even blocked some emails from going public pertaining to HRC and the TPP until after November -- and what's that about HRC vowing to be against the TPP while debating Bernie?

It's so sickening, it really is.

But he speaks Spanish!


I just knew Julian Castro was going to be her pick. To bad for her, he turned out to be just another politician that breaks the rules openly and thinks he can get away with it.

Some interesting stances.
Not gonna lie, first thing I thought when I saw the name was "Who?"


I would estimate that +90% of voters didn't know who Mark PENCE was either.

You can discount it all you want. The fact is is that Hillary may have lost some Blue dog support in the midwest after last night. She is scared

This right here. For those on the right, far right or even alt-right, you may not have seen any real problem with what was said in the four days of the RNC. But there were many, many and even more many red flags for anyone that is even just a bit left leaning to pick the Trump ticket. Why you might ask? Well anyone even a little bit left leaning does not buy the whole " we are going to make America safer" bit. They understand that is really just a statement that no party could ever live up to given the fact that there is always unforeseeable things on the horizon. They are turned off by the amount Christian propaganda at the RNC. They noticed all the war mongering and noticed no actual plans for anything was laid out. No policies for the most part, just a bunch of doom porn, appeals to the religious and calls to war.

As someone who feared Trump would win and be the first true American fascist leader I can say I no longer fear that. Because the RNC just killed any chance any significant portion of Bernie voters would ever now vote Trump.

I disagree. We will not be pressured into voting for a lesser evil. We see the two party gang system as corrupt and ripe for annihilation. We owe the DNC nothing. Did you see the DNC leaks that were released today? Any Bernie supporter that was halfway thinking about doing the nasty deed is far gone from that thought now. Jill Stein full speed ahead. Collectively forming a third, more progressive party in the next four yeas full speed ahead. Donald Trump? Damn the Torpedoes! Burn it down. Oligarchy will not change itself.

Tim Kaine will do exactly what Hillary directs him to do. Like Pence did, Kaine will snuggle right up to the nominee in his speech next week, in spite of their ideological differences.

Born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Kaine earned a law degree from Harvard Law School before entering private practice and becoming a lecturer at the University of Richmond School of Law. Kaine was first elected to public office in 1994, when he won a seat on the Richmond, Virginia City Council. He was then elected Mayor of Richmond in 1998, serving in that position until being elected Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in 2002.


Good grief another 'Harvard graduate'.

Been there done that, and lots of people got unemployment checks to prove it.

I'm voting Republican and I am ecstatic at this pick...

If she had picked Sanders they win by a comfortable margin....IMHO

Thankfully she is petty and vengeful so she didn't make the correct political decision...
