July 24, 2016

Friday night Hillary Clinton announced she had picked Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her Vice President.

We'll give you a low down on the man of the hour.

Full name: Timothy Michael Kaine

Age: 58

Born: February 26, 1958 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Raised in Kansas City, Missouri.

Current job: United States Senator from Virginia. Serves on Foreign Relations, Armed Services, Budget and Aging Committees.

Previous gigs: Richmond mayor, 1998-2001. Virginia Lt. Gov, 2002-2006. Virginia Gov. 2006-2010. Democratic National Committee chairman, 2009-2011.

Reputation, in one sentence: Personable and pragmatic former governor with an extensive resume in a purple state.

Strengths: Experience as governor? Check. Foreign-policy knowledge as a senator? Yup. Represents an important battleground state? Yuppers. Tested in high-profile campaigns? Affirmative. A team player (former DNC chair, willing Senate candidate in '12)? You bet. Speaks fluent Spanish? Si.

Weaknesses: The only negative we could really think of is that Kaines's more of an establishment politician than say a Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren-style progressive.

Family: Wife - Anne Holton. Kids: Nat, Woody, and Annella.

Let's delve a little bit into the pick ...

Sen. Kaine was chosen because Hillary is throwing the long bomb. Madame Badass has a strategy here. Donald Trump still thinks he's in a Republican Primary. The Republican convention spewed lies, vile rhetoric, and shared no policy ideas. Trump has yet to pivot. He accepted the nomination Thursday night in an insane and vitriolic speech doubling down on what garnered him the nomination. We can only assume this will remain throughout the general election. As offensive and disgusting as the things that will come out of his mouth will be, this works for Clinton as he'll shore up her Left. The Donald will keep doing just that for her through election day. After that dumpster fire of a convention, there is little doubt many liberals and progressive will be coming home by November.

There's also the fact that Kaine is fluent in oodles of things.
  • He's a former Jesuit student and speaks religion.
  • As a former mayor and governor of Virginia, he speaks Southern (not the accent, but totes the intent).
  • He is an unintimidating bridge to a middle ‘Merica that doesn’t have a rational party anymore. (Come on ova conservatives, the water is warm)
  • A lot has also been made that Kaine speaks fluent spanish. We say, Bueno. DALE! Park his ass in Florida, New Mexico and Arizona and on constant rotation on Univision, Telemundo and Fusion! ‬

    Ask the right way and North Carolina is ours, Arizona and Georgia can be ours, Tejas can be ours. Ask right way and we take back the House and Senate! Let's go for the route!
