|What could go wrong?|
They say people learn from their mistakes, so perhaps A.B. Culvahouse Jr. learned from his. The 67-year-old Washington insider -- who helped vet Sarah Palin before she became Republican presidential nominee John McCain's running mate in 2008 -- will now head the team that will screen vice presidential candidates for presumptive 2016 GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Culvahouse, a former counsel to the late Republican President Ronald Reagan, was among those taking criticism for the choice of Palin, the former Alaska governor who many critics blame for McCain's loss to then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in the race for the White House eight years ago
Bloomberg reported Wednesday that Culvahouse met with Trump at his Trump Tower headquarters in New York City. While Trump has said he would welcome VP advice from a number of people, including his former campaign rival Ben Carson, lawyer Culvahouse has the qualifications to dig into any vice presidential hopeful’s background.
Oh yeah, and we all know how good Culvahouse is at digging into a VP candidate's background, don't we Senator McCain?
Once again I am at the point where I am not sure if we should laugh or cry.
Though it is hard to imagine anything worse than having Donald Trump as our Reality Star-in-Chief, a VP hand picked by Culvahouse might prove that statement ultimately naive.
You know I keep pinching myself, but for some reason I just cannot seem to wake myself up from this particular nightmare.
