There’s something that Claire McCaskill is sure she’s getting for this early blocking-and-tacklinjg for Ms. Clinton. She’s gone after Bernie Sanders (of course, liberals are not her natural base so not much exposure there) and now she’s doing the early sniping at GOP low hanging fruit. Allowing Ms. Clinton to remain above the negativity and above the fray.
Seems to be beneath a Senator, so I’m guessing that it’s to show her loyalty to the Clinton Familia in the early jockeying for patronage positions in the coming Clinton Part Deux Administration. It’s quite a bit more than simple ring kissing but the payoff is well worth it.
Secretary of State? Secretary of Defense? Treasury? What is the payoff? VP is out of the question. America simply won’t stand for that much change all at the same time.Although, I would love to see it. The change in the character of this country would create changes throughout the world. Good changes.
Reality, however, rules the day. In order to become President of the United States, Ms. Clinton needs a man with all of Sen. McCaskill’s attributes for the VP spot. Unfortunately, the word “man” is used advisedly. There really is no other realistic choice at this time.
I personally would love to see a complete shake up of the system with Ms. Clinton tapping Jon Huntsman for VP and Mr. Huntsman accepting. The Republican Party would collapse as the moderates forced a reckoning and the faux conservatives headed for the hills. Something approaching a true conservative party might rise from the ashes. And, American would become a place where sane ideas from both sides compromised near the middle for the benefit of the citizenry more than corporations.
A not totally bad outcome.
