We should add a poll to the next thread.

That will go over swimmingly.

As for VP. The favorite seems to be Caine from VA. I've also heard Julian Sanchez and Corey Booker.

Beginning to wonder if Trump is going to make it to the convention. The bad news has been relentless these past two weeks.

There seems to be a renewed push to figure out a way to get him out. He's going to cost them so much more than just the White House with his behavior and both past and present. Barring something criminal I don't see him ever dropping out on his own, though, and they have no grounds to remove him.

Regardless, the GOP is an absolute clusterfuck and they did it all to themselves. Congrats, guys. Job well done.

I gotta disagree. No way she's picking a centrist white guy.

she needs one of these things. A progressive, exciting hero. Sanders or Warren

A swing state candidate - Brown or Caine - but both are boring white guys and Brown would lose us a seat.

a minority or woman - Castro, Booker, Warren or Amy whats her name from MN - But Amy doesn't have the name recognition and is from a blue state, and Castro is too young and from a red state that won't go blue...

My bet is still with Warren or Sanders.

Yeah I agree, he's dug in his heels and he ain't going voluntarily.

The thing is that I'm not sure it would be preferable (if you're the GOP) that Trump goes and "talks about the issues" like they all want. He either has no position on the issues because he's ignorant/unaware or insane positions on the issues - see banning Muslims. If he's being outrageous, then at least his sheer ignorance and lack of knowledge aren't out there for the world to see.

Brown and Caine are both brutal.

I would have never thought Warren was a realistic choice but it seems like she may be after all. I don't think that Bernie is going to be it at all.

Bernie or Warren and it's a landslide for Clinton (probably is anyway). I don't think Bernie would turn down the VP offer.

You guys are right, it's actually good that Saudi Arabia was allowed to give Hillary Clinton a bunch of money while she ran the State Department.

Trump
Johnson
Stein

Would bump up the ticket's honesty and trustworthiness.

I don't think they'll take Bernie. She doesn't necessarily need the help he'll provide in the general because of the weak opponent, and he has the potential to be a real pain in the ass as her veep after the election.

They should just let Biden chill there for another 8 years, if only for the pure entertainment or having Bill and Bernie together.

Not sure if you saw Warren's interview with Maddow last night. And that came after another of her brutal take-downs of trump at a speech earlier that evening.
But i'm with you. wasn't sure at first, but now I really want it to be her.
I just think that the combo of Clinton's experience/knowledge/planning/stability, along with Warren's firey attitude, and commitment to income inequality and banking reform - would be the perfect balance.

Warren would bring in a lot of progressive Sanders supporters into the fold, and would ease their mind that Clinton would be held to that standard, where they may question that at the moment.

I am hoping for Clinton/Warren.

I also would like Sanders. I don't know if he would turn it down. The man's got a good sized ego. To go from tiny town mayor to the second highest office in the land, aint too shabby.

Honesty and trustworthiness.

Like 3 decades of not paying invoices for work done? Donald so honest.

But who would bump it up on the other side?

Not even sure if Jesus could do that...
