Opinion: Why I don’t care about the VP pick in this US Presidential Election!
Let me be blunt, let me be clear I don’t really care about who Democratic Presumptive Nominee Hillary R. Clinton picks as her running mate, as the race was establishment and Wall Street money versus a real-contender with some ethical and positive stances in Bernie Sanders. Let me clear, I don’t care about the vetting process for the Republic Presumptive Nominee Donald J. Trump. Donald Trump is arrogant narcissist who hates everything he doesn’t understand and is racist, even if his campaign team isn’t meant to be interpreted that way or the policy on the Muslim foreign ban isn’t in stone, the picture of a xenophobic wall-building charlatan, is something the Republic nominee is and acts like. Therefore whoever he picks have to stand by these principals, have to support and trade the water that Trump carries and keep up with the inaccurate statements blurring like a bad radio signal.
If Hillary Clinton picks Elisabeth Warren, it will be a double woman ticket and some-what a progressive that even The Young Turks (TYT) admire a little bit, but if she has the character to sustain the cash-strapped Democratic National Party and their function built around Clinton money, is surely questionable, if she would pick somebody else, what would it matter? Who really rallied behind Obama, because of Joe Biden? Really did anybody do that? Did any cold-blooded American in 2008 run behind and vote Obama, Barrack Hussain Obama becomes of the calm and tidy Honorable Joe Biden?
Let, me take the other main candidate Donald Trump, the man who is vetting actual candidates from the New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who been used a bad substitute after he dropped from the Presidential race earlier in the Election Road Map, he has run the state of New Jersey, but his controversial style and charisma might be what Trump needs, but he does speak a lot for himself and hug the spotlight; something that a self-centered son-of-bitch doesn’t want to see. Mike Pence is some kind of a Indiana Governor and former lawyer, he is the likely man behind him. The man who promised a better Indiana and wanted for re-election as Governor in 2016; that will not happen if the goes behind Trump, than he has to trade his ethics for a possible VP choice. Another wild-card of a man is the former New Hampshire Senator Scott Brown, who in June asked Elizabeth Warren to be DNA tested for her native-Indian heritage, he sounds like the perfect running mate, as he runs in the same “moderate” circles of Trump and believes in the same kind of non-sense. As he want to be a political gamble and likely running mate, as they both have crazy sides and doesn’t have issues with bending public opinion or reality in their quest for power.
The Reason why I write this, is that the VP is a safe-bet from the Presidential Nominee, to either gain respectable position, clear the air in a fragmented Senate or Congress, while also tender to the public the Nominee doesn’t have grounds in, therefore if Hillary want’s to gain the excited, strangely unknown youths who got energized by the Sanders campaign; she should pick somebody who ignites these ones and not fear the Republican and Conservative votes. While the Trump who has battled and battled all kind of stereotypical political landscape with more rants than angry football coaches after a losing match. The Trump can either choose a man of character, a man of honor and a man who actually tender the public in another way then himself. But, he wouldn’t because that would make him look bad, that would be like a sequel actual being better than the original; that is a unlike scenario; this with the context of somebody of a man who has upset the whole staged republican party and has abolished many of the established candidates, together with stopping the funding of Presidential Nominee from the Koch brothers, as even companies are not funding the RNC convention in Cleveland this year, as it is supposed to start the Presidential Campaign for the Nominee of the Party.
So the questions seems to be a bit far fetch, nobody can do a worse pick that John McCain did in 2008 and picked Sarah Palin, the talking wonder from Alaska, who proves that some persons on this blue-earth does need drugs to talk out of whack. She is the epitome of bad pick. It was a wild-card and even if he tried the Woman for VP, it didn’t strike anything against the force of Barrack Obama as he proved the campaign of “Change” after long years of George W. Bush. Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan, the Koch infused Politician and the youthful character… Not that people remember that in 2012, that he did chose him as the man behind his back, as he later became the Speaker of the House in 2015. The savviness of Romney came to weakness of his character and still “Hope” from Obama. Therefore even with a wise choice and clear political aspiration of Ryan, didn’t help Romney a smidge.
That is why we shouldn’t focus much on the VP, the Vice-President is the hand-man and the saving grace for the President, the Head of State’s water carrier, if he was a Hip Hop Artist he would be his Spliff-man. Not that the man, is famous for doing much, just not let the President be caught or act a fool. Therefore the Spliff-man get caught with the spliff(weed) and serve time, while the artist continues to tour; as the money and service rendered will be repaid in full when his time behind is over. The same is with a VP, they can either step down or run themselves as a hopeful candidates. Biden could have run if he wanted, though gone against O’Malley, Sanders and Clinton. Though his name rings and synonymous with Obama, he still might have carried his own. The time will tell if he would have been a better Presidential Nominee than Clinton for the Democratic Party.
What is surely true, how much does the VP question really matters? They are practically spliff-men for the President and not the man in charge, unless the Chief is on a Foreign Trip or other unexpected is happening to the Executive. Peace.
