  •  A VP isnt only for campaign purposes. (1+ / 0-)

    Adding a VP so you can hire an attack dog is nice, right up until November. In November they actually hold an election and select a candidate who has to lead the country.

    Oddly it seems that someone might want to consider who the best person for the next 8 years is, and who could make the best President should the need arise (heartbeat away stuff)

    I am not enamored with the idea of selecting a VP simply on their campaign value over a 3 month period.

    •  Ya know, that used to be my way of thinking but (0+ / 0-)

      what if the 8 years is more Republican rule. The problem we have had in years past is that we picked the candidate that the base loved and lost. So, it did not matter that the VP was right, because neither the nominee nor his VP ever governed. I am sorry, I am at the point now that I want to see us cross the finish line, not just get up to the tape. I may not like Hillary, and I esp do not like Bill but if they can move the poll numbers to a favorable win so be it.
