Secretary Clinton “Goes Bold” in Considering Former Mayors for VP

VPsRichard Eskow’s recent blog in the Huffington Post with the headline “Clinton Must Go Bold-And Go Left-For Her VP” takes a strong position about who should and shouldn’t be considered as Hillary Clinton’s vice president.

I love the fact that as a baby boomer who is close to my generation, Richard uses social media like a teenager, never hesitating to say what’s on his mind and e-blasting it to as many people as possible. I don’t have the Washington experience to compare favorably to Richard’s, but I absolutely love that former mayors, Senator Cory Booker, Governor John Hickenlooper and Tim Kaine remain in the mix. To be successful and to get reelected mayors must have their ears to the ground and eyes wide open in today’s world of politics, while leading and operating large, complex public organizations and agencies. Senators Booker and Kaine or Governor Hickenlooper would be assets to Clinton as President and would provide her a direct line of communication with some of the most dynamic innovative leaders in politics, mayors of cities and towns across America.

    Clinton’s selection of Kaine is a gesture to the political center after she has been veering farther left to court the Sanders crowd. We shall see how Kaine is received by the progressives.
    It’s comical that Clinton choses a white male running mate after all her rhetoric about diversity and inclusion.
