5. I'm not saying I want this guy but what does "boring" have to do with it.

This person, whomever they are, will be one heartbeat away from being president. Boring i don't care, able to lead I do.

2. All I know is that of the three trump was considering,

 

Pence will be the easiest to debate. So I think it keeps all her options open.

4. I agree on the debate angle. Newt is formidable in debates and you simply can't debate Christie.

3. I hope we don't get 'the safe choice'

Pence is a nasty fighter... we need someone who can deliver knock outs.

6. Hillary needs to select a sharp mind with a young face to counter the old white male ticket.

I think Pence's selection boosts the chances for Warren and Castro, possibly even Booker and Perez.

I even think Klobuchar has a chance now.

9. Warren is NOT young. She is aggressive though.

10. If Warren were in her 50s, she would be the runaway favorite. She would demolish Pence in a debate.

7. I think it increases the likelihood of a "safe" pick...

 

and boosts Vilsack's odds particularly. But Tim Kaine probably moves to #1.

Hope I'm wrong. Elizabeth Warren is my dream pick.

8. It means she can't afford any mistakes

The fact she and Trump are virtually neck-and-neck means she has room for ZERO errors.

15. Take nothing for granted.

The fact that Trump is even polling decent numbers should terrify Hillary, and every other democrat.

13. I don't think it matters

Pence is unpopular and a real nothing burger in my opinion.
