- Will help with voters in VA, which becomes a must win state along with Colorado and Missouri to replace the lost delegates of Ohio and Florida. I don't think we will win either CO or MO, let alone VA, but that doesn't change the fact that they must be won. Will Kaine actually help? Not as much as Warner or Webb, that's for darn sure. Reports about Kaine's standing in VA leave me doubtful.
- Is Catholic and anti-choice, so will appeal to conservative voters, or so the thinking goes. The Catholicism is not going to be a factor one way or the other, as Hillary was the candidate who has the Catholic support. The anti-choice stance will give Hillary voters that much more reason to stay away.
- Is a bland non-entity who will not overshadow The Precious. Bingo, reason #1 for picking this guy.
