    The Washington Examiner ^ | December 1, 2016 | Sarah Westwood
    Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's former running mate, said Thursday that he and Clinton would soon appear for a series of "thank you events" in the "next couple of weeks" to show their appreciation for supporters. . . . Kaine argued the Clinton campaign was obligated to participate in a controversial multistate recount effort spearheaded by Green Party nominee Jill Stein. . . . "When Jill Stein, one of the third party candidates, decided to do it, if there's going to be a recount, we have to be at the table to make sure that it's done right," Kaine said....

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine says he'll seek re-election in 2018 but is ruling out a presidential bid in 2020. The former Democratic vice presidential nominee said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday that his decision is final.
  • Odds on GOP retaining Senate in 2018

    11/15/2016 8:19:59 PM PST · by Degaston · 17 replies
    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class. With 44 seats in the other 2 classes for the GOP and Pence as VP this means the Dem's have to pick off 3 seats to get the majority. Utah Hatch, Texas Cruz, Nebraska Fischer, Mississippi Wicker, and Wyoming Barrasso are about as close as possible to being done-deals that their seats stay GOP in 2018. Picking off Corker in Tennessee would be super hard to do. Flake in Arizona could be vulnerable depending on fallout with immigration enforcement. About the only...

    Hillary Clinton’s concession speech the day after her stunning loss to Donald Trump was a historic moment. She was gracious and remarkably strong and poised given the political and emotional enormity of what had happened to her. But surely the weirdest part of the moment was her introduction by her running mate and comrade, Tim Kaine, the left-wing Catholic and “social justice” warrior.In a brief preamble to Hillary’s big moment, Kaine tried to set the stage by invoking an unlikely pair of sources: the New Testament and Langston Hughes, a celebrated early-twentieth century communist poet, a fact that 99...

    A long list of Senate Democrats who face re-election in 2018 are from states Donald Trump won or nearly won on Election Day. That could mean a politically excruciating next two years for many of them, and for party leaders trying to chart a legislative path as the new age of Trump. The election two years from now had already looked difficult for Senate Democrats, who must defend 25 seats compared to just eight held by Republicans. The Democrats' list includes two independents, Vermont's Bernie Sanders and Maine's Angus King, who align with them. Of those 25 senators, 13 are...

Despite multiple warnings from the organization that has been steadily publishing stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton's running mate says he isn't threatened by the possibility of his correspondences going public, since he is a "regular human being" with nothing to be "overly embarrassed about." Nasty emails are "not my norm," the Democratic vice presidential nominee told the Associated Press on Saturday, adding, "I do have a temper so, I mean,...

    Jake Tapper's infamous furrowed brow of skepticism got quite a workout this morning on CNN's State Of The Union. The cause was the shuffling, dodging, and general evasiveness by Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine when questioned about the Wikileaks revelation that Hillary Clinton had called for open borders. Perhaps Kaine thought he would only be faced with questions that he would be eager to answer about the recent release of a decade old off-color Donald Trump tape. For the first part of the interview, Kaine was happily chirping away on this topic. However, Tapper eventually switched gears to ask about the Wikileaks revelation and...

    Because of his stellar debate performance, some think Mike Pence was positioning himself for a presidential run in 2020. But if likability still matters, it's likelier that Tim Kaine was taking himself out of the 2020 running. From the very beginning, it was as though Kaine was auditioning for the role of a despicable shyster in some cheesy TV legal drama. And with her frequent interruptions of Pence at key moments, it's also as if debate moderator Elaine Quijano was trying to help him get the part. Kaine focused mainly on three things: smarmily interrupting and taunting Pence, mouthing tired...

    Liberal Catholic candidates for public office such as Democratic nominee for vice president Tim Kaine often proclaim their Catholic identity to curry favor with this constituency, but when it comes to practicing the doctrines of their faith often are what are called “cafeteria Catholics”. They pick and chooses from what they might call the “Ten Suggestions”, particularly when it comes to a woman’s “right to choose”. Unfortunately for Tim Kaine and fellow cafeteria devotees, there is no right to choose on what are called “doctrines of the church”, even if he seems to think so. On the issue of same-sex...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) lost badly to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate — despite having home field advantage in Farmville, Virginia — raising new doubts about Hillary Clinton. Those doubts are twofold: first, about her decision to choose so weak a candidate, who seemed unable to answer basic policy questions; and second, about Clinton’s health, since if her medical troubles are as bad as feared, Kaine may be taking over at some point if she is elected. Kaine could not stop interrupting Pence, at times sounding high-pitched and shrill, at times whining and defensive. Pence...

    A minor bummer for Pence given his strong performance, but the ratings downturn from 2012 was probably inevitable. This was the first veep debate since 2000 to feature two politicians with low public profiles. In 2004 Cheney was the sitting VP; four years ago Biden was. In between, in 2008, you had massive public curiosity about Sarah Palin, producing the biggest audience for a vice presidential debate in history at 70 million people. Last night’s contest between Kaine and Pence drew barely half that. That’s what happens when you have two little-known vanilla candidates competing with the galaxy of cable...

    Well, if there was one thing that was obvious, besides Gov. Mike Pence winning the vice presidential debate, it was that Sen. Tim Kaine had an appalling inability to shut the hell up. Pence won handily over Kaine, who often waffled as he tried to attack Trump—and place pressure on Pence to defend his running mate’s past remarks. Pence didn’t take the bait. Yet, it seemed as if every time Pence offered a contrary opinion, or his take on policy, Kaine interrupted him. It was pervasive. Then again, when you're defending Clinton, one might have to interrupt often in the...

The facts surrounding this “mission trip,” however, raise grave and serious concerns, particularly given his continued relationships with the successors of a number of political and religious extremists.

    “Did you work on that a long time?” That Reaganesque rejoinder from Mike Pence — one of many — effectively put Tim Kaine in his place during a debate that exposed the depths of the Hillary campaign’s demagogic cheapness. Pence looked like a statesman; Kaine, rudely interrupting him for much of the debate, looked like a clumsy hatchet man and shameless party hack. Kaine’s labored lines and sweaty lunges contrasted embarrassingly with Pence’s smooth and substantive debate performance. Pence deftly ignored much of Kaine’s immature invective and directed the audience’s attention to Hillary’s failed record and the clear themes of...

    . . . and here come the bans Because you didn’t think anything freakier than the presidential election was possible this year, I’ve got good news! Apparently people can go absolutely ape-s*** insane over weirdos dressed up in grease paint and wigs just as much as when they walk into a primary voting booth. Brain-teaser: Which is easier? To manipulate the news media in this country? Or to be manipulated by the media? I don’t know who made the brilliant decision to start covering the sightings of random creepy clowns as if it was serious news, and but I do...

    Quiet down, now TIm. The grown-ups are talking During last night’s debate, you saw Mike Pence demolish rival Tim Kaine. It wasn’t even close. Pence came across as measured, well-versed in the facts, and - dare I say the p-word - presidential. Kaine, on the other hand, came unglued. Hillary’s VP spent the night in a wild-eyed fit of interrupting, stammering, and painfully canned jokes that landed with a thud. He quickly became tiresome so, if you managed to make it all the way to the end, congratulations. You have one more accomplishment than Hillary Clinton.

    RUSH: So how many of you watched the Donald Trump debate last night on taxes and nicknames for women? How many of you saw that debate? Yeah. I have to tell you, folks, I nearly turned it off I can't tell you how many times. I was embarrassed by the whole thing. ... The critics of Donald Trump say that he's a buffoon and he's unserious and all this. Tim Kaine last night was an embarrassment, just an abomination, and the moderator was an embarrassment last night. So much became clear, so much became obvious. One of the things, I'll...

    Clowns in the 2016 election race are part of the props and distractions in the Big Game called ‘Hillary Clinton’s Last Hurrah.' Could be thanks to CBSN anchor and moderator Elaine Quijano, allowing Democrat vice president hopeful Tim Kaine to interrupt Republican hopeful Mike Pence some 70 times at last night’s ‘debate’, that he becomes the irrefutable owner of instant “creepy clown” fame? CBSN’s camera crew gave Kaine mucho face play unwittingly showing him as “another creepy clown”.

    ...what a rude jerk you are. If the best casting director in Hollywood went in search of the perfect actor to play a typical know-it-all, smug, smarmy liberal to represent the Democratic Party on the vice presidential debate stage Tuesday night, he could not possibly have made a better selection than Tim Kaine. This was my first opportunity to see this potential president-in-waiting in action, and all I can say is that this sneering motor-mouth, who immediately began a pattern of repetitive and, I believe, intentional interruptions of his opponent and continued it as long as the moderator would let...

    Everyone says that Tim Kaine, despite his creepily uncanny resemblance to several dummies, is a really nice guy. And everyone concedes that Mike Pence is a genuinely nice guy; which is why this is the debate everybody was expecting:Butt OMG! what we got was more like this:The Dems sent Timmy/Triumph the insult dog instead of Timmy the Joker. Good grief Dems, a word of advice: stop beating your dogs. The only thing last night’s pet trick accomplished was to make Kaine – if this is even humanly possible –  less likeable than his running mate. Tim, channeling all of Hillary’s...
  • Chris Matthews: Pence ‘Winner,’ Kaine ‘Desperate’

    How well did things go for Mike Pence and the Trump-Pence ticket tonight? Even Chris Matthews—no doubt to the horror of Rachel Maddow who was helping oversee the post-debate commentary on MSNBC—had to declare Pence the “winner.” Perhaps even worse for the denizens of MSNBC and its viewers, Matthews said Pence looked “strong” and like a “grown-up,” whereas Tim Kaine came across as “desperate.” Ouch!

    Vice presidential candidates Tim Kaine and Mike Pence went head-to-head for the first time at Longwood University in Farmville, Va. To help us through the debate, we enlisted the help of three of our political writers and columnists to act as judges. Each judge scored every round with a win, lose or draw and declared Pence the winner at the end. Head to Trail Guide for more updates, or check out what our judges thought of the first debate.
