Veep Stakes

For John, BLUFBut, it will be something to talk about.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The New York Times and from the computer keyboard of Columnist Frank Bruni. Here is the lede plus two:
I DOUBT that Hillary Clinton really wants to run with Elizabeth Warren — I doubt that she fully trusts her — but if that’s her calculated decision:  mazel tov.  They sure were fiery together last week, two blue devils raring to bedevil Donald Trump.

Tim Kaine is totally sensible, mostly safe and a bit of a snooze: the aspirin of aspirants.  But if Clinton is tugged in the Virginia senator’s direction, she should head there.  I could certainly see him as the vice president.

Then again I’ve seen Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the job, in HBO’s “Veep.”  Clinton might as well pick her for all the difference it would make.

I like the Julia Louis-Dreyfus idea, but really, I go for Alexander Throttlebottom.

And, of course, for The Old Gray Lady the question of a Vice President for The Donald is totally irrelevant.  Who would want the job?

Hat tip to Memeorandum.
