1. His policy positions are Hillary's policy positions.

That's how it works.


VP candidates do not go rogue.

2. They are solidly for a public option, is my understanding, is that correct?

4. As Hillary's Vice President, not an loose cannon, so he reflects her policies.

Whatever positions he might have held prior to accepting the job of her Veep, is irrelevant now.

10. There's plenty of money for that. We could save a fortune in blood and treasure by

 

ending our wars in the Middle East.

12. Which wars do you want to end?

 

But in any event, that seems like a separate issue to me. The well-being of our military members and their families should not depend on the US deciding to end military action in any particular area but should be a priority for every person in this country.
