This may be exactly the right branding for the Clinton campaign as a stark contrast to hum-Trump.
I worked for Tim Kaine's campaigns, I've been around Tim Kaine, I've been following his career for 20 years. When I wanted inspiration trying to turn VA Blue in the aughts, I didn't turn to Mark Warner, he is a great man and politician, but no liberal, I turned to Tim Kaine. The man was the most liberal local politician i could find in my state in 2001. He's been a great liberal ambassador to this state and will be a great Vice President for this country.
I wanted to take a moment to tell you why I'm so proud that Hillary has chosen Senator Tim Kaine to join her on the Democratic ticket this fall.
Nothing can really prepare you for this job. You come to learn that it's about having a firm grasp of the issues, sound judgment, and the tenacity never to stop fighting to make people's lives better...
I'm thrilled to tell you this first: I've chosen Sen. Tim Kaine as my running mate. Welcome him to our team: http://hrc.ms/vp/2xoszm -H
(Huffpost) Like a lot of Virginians, I’ve had to chuckle a bit at the way Virginia Senator Tim Kaine has been portrayed since rising to the top of Secretary Clinton’s VP short list. Apparently, the gods of conventional wisdom have decided Kaine is a “boring,” “safe,” “centrist” pick whose “DINO” positions may make him anathema to the Sanders base. Oh really? Because I can assure you as a native Virginian, this caricature doesn’t at all fit the man I’ve watched over nearly 20 years. In fact, the consistent knock on him in every election in Virginia has been that he was too liberal! This was such an issue that when Kaine was elected Lieutenant Governor under Mark Warner in 2001, Warner used their first joint press conference to distance himself from the controversial, left-leaning Kaine. So before you allow the national media topline and Kaine’s status as a white Southern man to lull you into a quick judgment, here are a few things you should know about why this Bernie broad loves Tim Kaine.
(The Hill) Signs seen being waved at the convention — presumably passed out along with other placards — read "Hispanics para Trump." Not only did the text not translate "Hispanics" to "Hispanos," it also used "para" instead of "por."
(Vox) Tonight, Donald J. Trump accepted the Republican Party’s nomination for president of the United States.
And I am, for the first time since I began covering American politics, genuinely afraid.
Donald Trump is not a man who should be president. This is not an ideological judgment. This is not something I would say about Mitt Romney or Marco Rubio. This is not a disagreement over Donald Trump’s tax plan or his climate policies. This is about Trump’s character, his temperament, his impulsiveness, his basic decency.
It's not a convention speech. It's a series of one-liners from his stump speech strung together into an almost incoherent, themeless diatribe. He's talking to the racist, terrified white people he's been talking to for a year and who are already voting for him.
He's screaming at a nation of people who have not decided to vote for him. He's yelling insults at a President with yuuge approval numbers. He's haranguing his crowd to behave like bloodthirsty assholes who scare the rest of the country.
It sounds like Trump battled his advisers and speechwriters and, unfortunately, he won.
