I’m feeling a lot more bullish on Trump.
Hillary is gambling that she can take Bernie Sanders supporters, particularly Millennials who hated in her in the primary, for granted. She is also betting on an Obama-level turnout among blacks and Hispanics with a boring White male moderate as her running mate. I don’t see either happening in November.
What is her message? What is compelling about the Hillary-Kaine ticket? Mike Pence added some much needed balance to Trump’s ticket. Hillary picked a running mate who has less charisma than Al Gore and who has no appeal to minorities or the disaffected wing of the Democratic Party.
Former Sen. Jim Webb has endorsed Donald Trump. He should help in Virginia. Maybe he will run for Kaine’s US Senate seat?
Update: Wall Street is breathing a huge sigh of relief now that the storm has passed. The Tim Kaine pick will also make all the neocons happy who have publicly endorsed Hillary:
“Hillary Clinton’s unveiling of Tim Kaine as her vice presidential pick was greeted by mixed reactions from liberal groups on Friday night. But one constituency breathed a sigh of relief: Wall Street …”
Note: So this is how the Bernie Sanders “Political Revolution” ends … with Hillary-Kaine 2016!
Is the Bernie crowd really going to show up for two corrupt party hacks running on a return to Clinton-era globalist centrism when Wall Street ran the US economy? Are they going to vote for “a loyal servant of the oligarchy?”
