For John, BLUF: It is a long time to November 2016, so speculation will just get wilder. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Breitbart we have this item on Former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown on Ms Clinton's possible running mate. When Willie Brown speaks I sit up straight and pay attention. In my mind he is only rivaled as a politician by "Big Daddy" Jesse Unruh.
Willie Brown, Jr. made the suggestion in a recent op-ed he penned in the San Francisco Chronicle, to which he is a regular contributor:Why not?Think about it. Brown has a command of national, international, economic and environmental issues that is equal to or greater than almost any other Democrat. There’s no learning curve needed for him. He has the independence that independent voters will be excited about, and he’s run for president more times than anyone I know.
