    2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden said Monday he is open to selecting a Republican running mate to join him on the ticket if nominated this summer. “Our 21-year-old son said the other night, ‘I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate,’” one woman asked Biden during a New Hampshire town hall.“The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden responded. “You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now…they’ve got to step up.”It was a smart...

    Tuesday on the “Joe Madison Show,” Fair Fight Action Chair and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said she would “love” the opportunity to be the 2020 vice-presidential candidate. When Madison asked if she would be interested in being a running mate for the eventual 2020 Democratic nominee, Abrams said, “If the question is would I like the job I’m not going to be coy and say no. Of course, I would love that opportunity.”

    Vice President Mike Pence made his rounds on cable television on Sunday morning. One of the issues that repeatedly came up was crisis along our southern border.CNN's Jake Tapper grilled Pence on the inhumane conditions detainees are facing, including lack of toothbrushes, blankets, showers and other basic necessities. Pence, however, said it is Democrats who have withheld funding to address the situation. "That's why the president has continually called on Congress. He's said, 'let's give them another two weeks before we engage in the deportation effort,'" Pence explained, referencing President Trump's last minute decision to put a deportation sting on hold....
  • A separate election for the VP?

    We’ve seen plenty of protest movements lately seeking to change the way we handle national elections. The most high-profile one is probably the push to do away with the Electoral College and go to a popular vote model. Others want the states to award all of their EC votes to the winner of the popular vote, leading to basically the same result. But there’s another effort underway to make a slightly more subtle, but still significant change. Vice.run is trying to gather signatures and build support for putting the VP on a separate ballot line, allowing the voters to directly...

    --SNIP--Joe Biden monetized his vice presidential powers, says author Peter Schweizer. “It’s pretty clear that the for-sale sign was open, and that a lot of foreign powers — including foreign governments — gave money to his son, Hunter Biden. "That demands investigation. Financial records from Morgan Stanley [are] very, very clear. It shows line after line after line of money going into an account that is marked ‘Robert H. Biden,’ (Hunter Biden’s legal name), and it shows huge sums of money coming in from Ukrainians, Chinese, Kazakhs, and anonymous LLCs. It’s all there in black and white.” Hunter Biden sat...

    Second Lady Karen Pence has revealed the Christmas decorations adorning the Vice President’s residence. Bringing in the month of December, Karen Pence has shared photos of the beautiful Christmas displays at the VP’s residence. The dining room displays a wonderfully decorated fireplace mantel and tree. In the foyer, a Christmas tree stands in the nook. The decorations on this tree were created by participants in the Art Therapy Program at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Nutcrackers stand guard on each side of the tree.

    Townhall.com ^ | October 14, 2017 | Cal Thomas
    If a metaphor could be used for this White House, it might be a two-sided coin with President Trump the head and Vice President Mike Pence the tail. The president tends toward the bombastic to get people's attention and make his points, while his vice president is calm and measured in his response to questions, sometimes resembling a contemplative monk. In many ways, they complement each other. During an interview Thursday, the vice president said tax reform is now the administration's top domestic priority and that "we have the best opportunity between now and the end of the year to...

    Will Dallas join the 2017 Great Purge of American History? (Part 3 of 6) Throughout his political career, Dallas believed in popular sovereignty regarding states’ rights. To him that meant, until the Constitution was amended, each state had the right to decide the slavery issue for itself. The “Life of George Mifflin Dallas, Vice President of the United States” was originally prepared in September 1844, by the Democrat Committee of Publication, and then revised in November 1847. Quotes from Dallas within the publication document his understanding of popular sovereignty applied to the issue of slavery in new territories. A debate,...

    It’s over. The vice presidential debate has ended. But you wouldn’t know it because Sen. Tim Kaine is still talking over everyone. Yes, it’s the “junior prom,” but it does matter. One of these two men will be a heartbeat from the presidency come January, whether you like it or not. Given Hillary Clinton’s mysterious health issues, that's nothing to sniff at on the Democratic side. One of these men – Pence – will have the opportunity to advise a president on such important issues as the economy and national security. The other probably will be outside the room pressing...
  • 37 million viewers: Audience for VP debate was smallest

    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...

  • If the VP Debate Was an Ice-cream Social: Vanilla v Vanilla

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/4/16 | Beverly Hallberg
    The most popular flavor of ice cream in America is vanilla. (Most surveys suggest it clocks in at 29 percent.) But I doubt many people choose to eat it plain. I know I'd rather eat the chocolate chip cookie dough — a pint of it, actually, while watching Netflix. Vanilla is our choice to serve as a complement, often mellowing a too-rich dessert. That's how I view the VP candidates this time around. A La Mode.

    Prior to announcing Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump had narrowed the VP field down to the Indiana governor, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and Gov. Chris Christie. While Gingrich seems to have been a good sport about Trump’s ultimate decision to go with Pence, according to the Weekly Standard, Christie was “livid.” While minding my own business at the Starbucks inside the Westin hotel this morning, I saw a man engage Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in conversation about the VP selection process. The man, whom I couldn't identify, suggested that Pence was...

According to a survey of Sanders delegates conducted by the Bernie Delegates Network, the numbers show "big concerns about Hillary Clinton's pending choice of a vice presidential candidate."

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 7/14/2016 | Jonathon Last
    The Drudge siren is blaring that Mike Pence is Trump's VP pick. I'm not sure I believe it, though, for a couple reasons. First, if you're a master showman looking to make as big a splash as possible, at least one head fake is required. In illusionist terms, the head fake is the turn, then bringing out the real VP is the prestige. Just picking a guy, leaking the word 24 hours early, and then rolling him out is the least-showy process imaginable. Second, Pence is probably the second-worst available pick on the board. Here's how the veep possibilities should...
  • Thoughts on Trump's Vice President (Whoever it May Be)

    Within the next 48-72 hours, we should know who Donald Trump has chosen for a running mate. Some think it will be Friday and others think it will be over the weekend. But chances are, we will know by this time on Saturday (just three days from now) as typically candidates want to maximize the convention news cycle and announcing a few days prior will help accomplish that and build some excitement leading into the convention itself. I have no idea who Trump is going to pick but I do know this: Once the pick is made, there is...
