Yeah, it’s the obvious headline, but there you are.
This is a rather predictable and boring pick. Yes, it sews up Virginia for Hillary, and probably helps prop up Pennsylvania, but…man, how dull. We have a race with three white guys and a white woman. She could have had Julian Castro, which would have given us someone under 50 and not white, but she didn’t.
Kaine is a safe choice, I suppose. There’s nothing wrong with him, really. But…I could just wish for better.
On a side note, I find it very interesting that both campaigns have chosen boring, safe candidates as their VP pick.
