    New Clinton VP pick Kaine tried to shame Congress into action on ISIS

    Nobody knows better than Hillary Clinton the steep political price to pay for voting in favor of an unpopular war. Clinton’s 2002 “yes” vote on legislation permitting George W. Bush to hurl America’s military against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq helped smother her 2008 presidential hopes. Kaine has bluntly told colleagues who are worried about the long-term political fallout of voting yes (or no) to a war on ISIS that ducking a vote now amounts to cowardice and sets a terrifying precedent for unchecked presidential war-making power.

    Hillary Clinton picks Tim Kaine for VP

    Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she has picked Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, making a safe, centrist choice that will likely disappoint some in the progressive wing of her party. “I’m thrilled to tell you this first: I’ve chosen Sen. Tim Kaine as my running mate,” Clinton wrote in a text message to her supporters Friday night. In a later email, she said she chose Kaine because she was confident he could step in and be president at a “moment’s notice” and because he is beloved by his staff and Senate colleagues.

    Tim Kaine through the years

    Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she has picked Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, making a safe, centrist choice that will likely disappoint some in the progressive wing of her party. The pair is set to campaign together in Miami on Saturday and then head to the Democratic National Convention next week. Kaine offers Clinton many strengths as a running mate: He has foreign policy experience from his time on the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committee in the Senate, he can boost her chances to win the battleground state of Virginia, and he has a squeaky-clean, nice guy image that could help Clinton with her trust issues among voters.

    Trump promises ‘law and order,’ amid divided GOP

    Donald Trump formally accepted the Republican presidential nomination Thursday night, casting himself as a political outsider uniquely prepared to steady a troubled country and come to the rescue of struggling Americans betrayed by the Washington establishment and both political parties. In what was the biggest speech of his unlikely political career, Trump sounded many of the same themes that have driven his insurgent campaign since he rode down a golden escalator into the presidential race a little over a year ago. Linking her to President Obama, Trump called Clinton a “puppet” of special interests, determined to maintain the “rigged system” in Washington and someone who has ignored the plight of millions of blue-collar workers who have seen their jobs outsourced overseas.

Ivanka Trump has been a constant presence on the campaign trail this past year, beginning when she introduced him at Trump Tower the day he entered the race last year, and including the weeks when she was heavily pregnant before giving birth to her third child in March.

The theme of Donald Trump’s candidacy has been that things are terrible, and people are afraid, and he will protect them.

    Gay billionaire Peter Thiel draws cheers at GOP convention

    Maverick Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel delivered a speech tonight that would have been unheard of at a Republican convention not too many years ago: He proclaimed himself “proud to be gay,” decried “fake culture wars” and called for an end to “stupid wars” in the Middle East. “Instead of going to Mars, we have invaded the Middle East,” Thiel said to a packed auditorium. Then, after attacking Hillary Clinton for pushing for a military intervention in Libya, he added: “On this most important issue, Donald Trump is right.
