JoeP: As far as a VP, Kaine was not chosen to help the campaign but to assist with matters of government because of his experience and bipartisan friendship with the likes of John McCain. He is by his own admittance, boring. Boring is good for the last thing the Clinton campaign is more pyrotechnics to blow the election up. Steady as she goes. Same with Pence, a non factor. The VP debates will consist of Pence, Kaine and an equally exciting freshly painted wall drying. I'll go with the wall for excitement.
