Sen Tim Kaine has a lot going on for him and us! Al Giordano Tweets on Kaine..

‏@AlGiordano Al Giordano Retweeted Jesse Smith
He's not. He's a social justice progressive, the real kind, that knows civil and equal rights are a pillar of it

12. Suffice to say, Tim Kaine understands that the first rule of governing by coalition is being a good listener. That's why he's popular.

16. Those who complain about this pick by and large don't know him. Watch him win them over in the coming months. He will.

This is what Senator Kaine did in Honduras..

3. Kaine lived abroad for a year, and the experience changed his life. Kaine was educated as a Jesuit. He took a year off from law school to live in Honduras. He worked as a missionary, and he taught welding and carpentry to teenagers. While in Honduras, he became fluent in Spanish. His experience in Honduras has had a huge impact on his view of the world of the haves and have-nots

2. He is fluent in Spanish

Kaine learned Spanish while living in Honduras in 1980. He took a year off from law school to work at a technical school with Jesuit missionaries.

In 2013, Kaine spoke in Spanish for almost 13 minutes on the floor of the Senate advocating for an immigration overhaul bill crafted by the bipartisan "Gang of Eight."

It marked the first time a senator gave an entire speech on the floor in a language that was not English, although others have spoken briefly in Spanish before.

I love that he was only in Honduras for a year way back when and yet he speaks fluent Espanol now!

Oh and this..

3. He has a son in the military

Kaine's son Nat is an active-duty Marine, which makes Kaine one of just a few members of Congress who have a child serving in the military.

In 2014, Kaine met with Virginia veterans at a momentous time in his son's military career, according to the Culpeper Star Exponent. "My son is an infantry officer who takes control of his first platoon Monday so these are issues that matter to me personally," he said. Perhaps as a result of his son's military experience, Kaine has focused on military and foreign policy in Congress, serving on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

In an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Kaine criticized comments that GOP nominee Donald Trump made criticizing the military.

"When I hear Donald Trump say the American military is a disaster, I want to go through the screen and shake the guy," Kaine said in the interview. "We ought to have a commander in chief who talks about our troops with respect and gratitude."

I've learned today that Senator Tim Kaine..

is brilliant, compassionate and funny.. the opposite of pence.

I hear pence wasn't doing too well in his bid for 3rd as gov of Indiana.. whereas Kaine is popular in Virginia.

Oh and this!

ETA!
#6. Anne Holton, Kaineís wife, shares his passion for social justice. Anne Holton has the distinction of having been the daughter of one Virginia governor ó her father A. Linwood Holton, Jr. ó and wife of Tim Kaine. When she was a girl, her parents made the decision to send her and her siblings to the largely black public schools. It was a controversial decision that required police protection for Anne and her sister, but it began Holtonís dedication to the cause of public education.

Jarron Collins: I've never been more proud of my brother

He was very simple and matter-of-fact.

"Jarron, I'm gay."

"You're what?"

I won't lie. I had no idea. We talked, he answered my questions, I hugged him and I digested what he had told me. At the end of the day, this is what matters: He's my brother, he's a great guy, and I want him to be happy. I'll love him and I'll support him and, if necessary, I'll protect him.
