Your candidates running mate?

I imagine most folks have more or less decided who they will vote for in November. So as the title suggests, who would you like to see as their running mate?

Hillary and Bill Clinton. Nothing says he can't be VP - and what better than to resurrect their successful tenure in the 1990's?

I don't feel that way, but I believe there are many, many Americans who would vote Bill a third term. And they may see Hillary as a proxy for him.

On the positive side for Bernie - he's pretty much stuck to what he's always said (except it's coming out now that he's also floating in Wall Street money).

On the negative side - what's he always said has always been wrong. No socialist system has ever succeeded, and his "free everything" approach is just ridiculous, and not remotely sustainable.

Here's an article about his latest event in New Hampshire - which was a "Hippie Love Fest." The lead band was The Magnetic Zeros... You can draw your own conclusions whether this will be a successful direction for our country through 2020.

Let me respond (not ranting here!)

You mean the "alleged" money that went from wall street to the democratic party, then allocated to bernie in the senate race? Hillary is crazy for even saying that. Ok, lets say it was. It was for $100K? The Clintons have racked up $150M over their political career.

The free everything approach - I look at it like this. When you shoot for something, you shoot for the stars, and you accomplish what you can. there is no doubt that all of those will not happen but it's a good starting point to try and achieve when you can vs. clinton's we can't get anything done so I only have 2 things that i WILL get done. In your everyday life, do you short sell yourself? I know my approach is I will be CFO one day and will shoot to get there; my goal/vision isn't wanting to be a senior analyst and limiting myself.

But in the end, it just boils down to character for me. Bernie is the most honest. The rest, including the right, are crazies. It's sad for me to see/watch HRC as time goes on. She looks so pathetic and desperate to win all the votes. She probably will win even if she didn't come across as she is right now. "enough is enough", "income inequality", these are all things Bernie has preached since the beginning and now HRC is saying these things. Wow - changing everything to just get a vote. Pathetic. To me, I really think HRC just wants a promotion.

Man, at least Palin (when she tries) is a good speaker and can fire up a crowd.

O'Donnell belongs in some kind of psychiatric ward.

We must be thinking of different Palins. The one I'm familiar with is a ranting, drooling buffoon.

Surely you are thinking of a different Palin, because Sarah Palin proved herself to be dumb as fucking dogshit.

She did a good job while with McCain at rallies and her first speech she ever gave fired up a lot of people.

Not saying she's a good person or an intelligent person, she's an idiot, just saying that if she actually puts effort into it, she can deliver a speech that moves her audience...who are likely also idiots.

Seems kind of pointless as, even IF Bernie wins, there's no way in hell he would get Obama to be his VP, but OK
