9. It would be the height of arrogance for any candidate
to announce a running mate before securing the nomination. It would be the height of stupidity to do so before a single vote is cast in the primaries.

The one and only criteria for a running mate is what would he or she bring to the ticket?

Aren't we long overdue for a minority running mate? How about Cruz Bustamante if he wins the recall election?
