So Who Will Or Should Trump Pick For VP?

 Certainly possible.

 Outside of the expected neocon and RNC front operations, Ted Cruz's selection of Carly Fiorina as his would be VP pick is seen by most observers as either desperate pandering, naked desperation or an open abandonment of numerous of his previously stated positions and alleged principles. In reality it's probably all three along with a pay back for his having dumped half a million dollars into her campaign earlier. I strongly doubt it will much impress the voters of Indiana and likely cheeses off both Kasich and Rubio.

All that said it has also opened the floodgates of speculation on who Trump might select. Some of it so absurd as to be laughable. Most notably FOX News correspondent Carl Cameron's statement last night that Trump has to pick a woman because his ego is two big, he's to much of an alpha male to share the political spotlight with with another male. These so called experts have been out flanked and made to look like fools by Trump since the day he announced. I don't see that pattern changing any time soon.

  2. Jim Webb is a sharp cookie, but I can't support the fact that he self-describes as a hardcore Leftie/Lib with his only virtual being strong on the Defense of America. When you read some of his writings, you would think he is a conservative. Who is he lying to? Us or himself? I think Jeff Sessions would be a great choice.

  3. Don't the neocons want him to run third party or am I thinking of someone else?
