I’m afraid it’s a done deal. Reeling in the Republicans, which is really what Dems are about anyway, right? Been obvious for a while that it’s one, big, happy corporate family, and we “ain’t in it,” as Carlin said.

Of course, he saw it long ago, while some of us, even those of us who thought we were fairly politically savvy (me, sheepish grin) are just feeling the full impact of that truth.

Just look at USSC nominee Merrick Garland, who apparently approved of a case with an even more extreme position than CUnited. But Justices!

And bonus, he supported right to work laws as Governor of Virginia. And he supported fast tracking the TPP so that amending a 5,600 page “trade (actually investor rights) deal would be impossible! After all, who the hell would want to give CONGRESS the power to actually LEGISLATE when they could be a rubber stamp for the President’s agenda? That really sounds like the kind of guy you want stepping in in case of an emergency.

Kaine for VP! Because Mike Pence is REALLY, REALLY scary! Be afraid, vote blue. Or else.

Clinton-Kaine is nothing more than a Gore-LIEberman redux. Remember how there was no way in hell that Gore-LIEberman could ever lose to the ticket of the barely-trained Chimp Man-Child and a real-life Darth Vader? It’s like déjà vu all over again…

My Governor, BTW, and very likely a decent guy. That’s what I hear. OTOH, Kaine was the DNC Chair who dismantled the 50 State Strategy that Howard Dean proved could work, plus all of the comments below.

Terry McAuliffe is the VA Gov now, and I read someplace that he would probably appoint himself to Kaine’s seat, which sounds about right to me. McAuliffe is “like family” to the Clinton’s, and whatever “technical changes”, McAuliffe does love that darn TPP. Kaine, too. [Hillary too, but just not right now. The big flip would have to come later, only if Obama can’t get it through the Lame Duck session].

Stealing defeat, from the jaws of victory.

Yeah, that sounds about right.
