Hillary Clinton has certain qualities she is looking for in a running mate.

Courtesy of USA Today: 

Hillary Clinton is considering a running mate who could make a direct appeal to supporters of Bernie Sanders, bridging a generational and political divide, according to four people close to the campaign. 

Clinton’s chief requirements include a candidate’s resume and a fighter capable of hand-to-hand combat with Trump. The campaign’s vetting also prioritizes demographics over someone from a key swing state as she seeks to unify the Democratic voting base, said the individuals coordinating with the campaign, who were not authorized to speak on the record about early deliberations.

Let's see can appeal to supporters of Bernie Sanders,  with a good resume, and the ability to engage in hand-to-hand combat with Donald Trump.

Nope, just can't think of ANYBODY who meets that criteria.
Yep that's a puzzler alright.
By the way Nate Silver gives Hillary Clinton a 75% chance of winning this election.

Pretty sure with a certain running mate she can make it 100%.

    I so hope it might be Elizabeth Warren. But, Hillary Clinton knows what she is doing and who will fit best with her!

    I have every confidence in her where I have none when it comes to Donald Trump!

    "say people not authorized to speak"

    Hillary rarely says anything. Nor does her campaign.

    But the more the media can promote Elizabeth Warren, the more money they'll make.

    Where Hillary Clinton is concerned, there is no gross, wrong or just plain nasty claim the media won't make for a buck. All from anonymous sources not authorized to speak, of course....

    I'd sure like Hillary to put the spotlight on this. This is so infuriating that they are getting away with this!!

    How Obama Can Break the Impasse on the Supreme Court Vacancy

    The Republicans are getting away with their disgraceful strategy of blocking the whole constitutional process for filling a Supreme Court vacancy. All signs show that although roughly two-thirds of voters do not think this stonewalling is right, the issue is simply disappearing from view and thus is falling off the radar as an electoral factor.

    Something should be done, and it can.

  9. O/T: Happy Birthday, John Leland!: Remembering An Overlooked Hero Of Church-State Separation
    https://au.org/blogs/wall-of-separation/happy-birthday-john-leland-remembering-an-overlooked-hero-of-church-state

    Leland, born in Grafton, Mass., on May 14, 1754, …

    Despite living in an era of fervent faith and well-established state churches, Leland was a vocal advocate for church-state separation. He believed that government meddling with matters of religion was bad for both faith and individual freedom.

    Leland … consistently advocated for religious freedom resting on the principle of church-state separation. In fact, Leland played an important role in securing the Bill of Rights. When the Constitution was first submitted to the states in 1787, many in Virginia and elsewhere criticized the lack of a Bill of Rights. Leland and other Baptists were particularly upset that this draft of the Constitution included no guarantee of religious freedom.

    Leland was a man far ahead of his time. Indeed, he recognized that political candidates who wrap themselves in faith should be viewed suspiciously.

    “Guard against those men who make a great noise about religion in choosing representatives,” observed Leland. “It is electioneering intrigue. If they knew the nature and worth of religion, they would not debauch it to such shameful purposes. If pure religion is the criterion to [decide upon] candidates, those who make a noise about it must be rejected; for their wrangle about it proves that they are void of it. Let honesty, talents and quick dispatch characterize the men of your choice.”

    (Note, by the way, that he correctly uses "criterion" as the singular form of "criteria".)

      The article left out that Leland was a Baptist. That's actually rather important. Not all Baptists are like the current crop of "Southern" moniker. There are at least two groups of Baptists, The Alliance of Baptists and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, who left the "Southerns" because the SBC is so narrow-minded on too many issues. Yes, there really are Baptists who are progressive, as most of the original Baptists were. You just don't hear about them because they go quietly about doing what the Jesus of the Bible taught.

      I think he noted it because it is so rare to find people who actually use the English language correctly. To be fair though, I'm suer his education included many years of Latin, which would have made proper use of English simple.

      Paragraph two of the article begins: Leland, born in Grafton, Mass., on May 14, 1754, became a nomadic Baptist preacher after abandoning the Congregationalism of his early years. There is a further reference to his faith in paragraph five. Please note that I did provide a clickable link to the article.

      Did you not notice that Gryphen wrote, "who meets that criteria" instead of "who meets those (three) criteria"?

      Anonymous 4:23 AM wrote: his education included many years of Latin

      Five, but I learned about -on/-a in Classical Greek, which I only took for three years. A source on the web says that using "criteria" as if it were singular has been around for about fifty years—i.e. since a few years after I finished my math/physics BSc.


      Shucks… I was hoping for a response from present-day Leland.

      Also, I read at TPM and New York Mag that he probably only earns $500,00O a year, and may be worth a mere fraction of what he claims: around 250 million. He's not a billionaire. That's why he's hiding his taxes.

    'He’s our hero': Hindu nationalists rally for Donald Trump in India

    Trump’s stance on Muslim immigration to the US and his rhetoric against Isis has caught the attention of Hindu nationalist groups in India

    ... Gupta’s motives for supporting Trump were simple: “He’s the only many who can put an end to Islamic terrorism.”

    Trump’s hardline stance on Muslim immigration to the US and his rhetoric against Isis and other terror organisations seem to have caught the imagination of the young Hindu fringe leader, who has grown up in a political climate where communal strife between Hindus and the Muslim minority has led to violent clashes on both sides.

    I just wish--sounds petty but have to say it--that Hillary would get a little teeth whitening done. Nothing too much. Just a little. She has a great smile and it's so natural looking, whereas Trump hardly ever shows his upper teeth and they're all veneered and fake white. (I recently found a pic, too, that has him sneering so that you can see his upper gum line, and there's an obvious metal edging around one of his front teeth, so that one's actually crowned.) His need for that hair, constant tan and bright white teeth shows how badly he needs to be thought of as youthful, but it just says "hey, I'm old!" to me. Hillary is aging as she should age. I do think, though, that a little whitening would really be a plus.
