Senator Tim Kaine is a proven leader- Mike Pence is a follower

Congratulations to the qualified Senator Tim Kaine! You will, rightly, be the next Vice President of the  United States!

Take it to the political bank, so to speak, Secretary Hillary Clinton won't leave her Vice Presidential choice Senator Tim Kaine abandoned on the stage in Philadelphia after he accepts his nomination. Secretary Clinton is more sophisticated than stupid Donald Trump, who left Pence and his family to stand like political refugees after the Vice Presidential nomination was confirmed.

As Rachel Maddow said on her nightly show, the role out of Senator Tim Kaine was conducted like a well rehearsed marching band.  
Charlie McCarthy was the puppet for Edgar Bergen - seems like Donald Trump treated Governor Mike Pike as though he were a political puppet
Contrast the professional Senator Kaine presentation by the Clinton campaign against the botched up announcement of the Donald Trump selection of the boring "Governor Mike Pence 'who'?" of Indiana. First, the role out of Governor Pence was delayed by the French attack in Niece, then upstaged by Donald Trump, who didn't show much enthusiasm for his first executive political decision. These two glitches were underscored by the ridiculous 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl where Donald Trump reacted to Governor Mike Pence as though he were Edgar Bergen manipulating the puppet Charley McCarthy. 

Clearly, Senator Tim Kaine is a proven leader.
Kaine, a Roman Catholic, is personally against abortion, but is "largely inclined to keep the law out of women's reproductive decisions." Kaine has said: "I have a traditional Catholic personal position, but I am very strongly supportive that women should make these decisions and government shouldn't intrude. I'm a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade and women being able to make these decisions. In government, we have enough things to worry about. We don't need to make people's reproductive decisions for them." Kaine supports some legal restrictions on abortion, such as requiring parental consent and banning late-term abortions in cases where the woman's life is not at risk. 

Kaine was born in St.Paul Minnesota. He earned a law degree from Harvard Law School before entering private practice and becoming a lecturer at the University of Richmond School of Law. Kaine was first elected to public office in 1994, when he won a seat on the Richmond, Virginia City Council. He was then elected Mayor of Richmond in 1998, serving in that position until 2002, when he was elected Lieutenant Governor of Virginia.

What impressed me out of the gate about Senator Kaine was how much he beamed with joy at being selected by Secretary Clinton too be her running mate. Likewise, Democrats must respond to Senator Kaine in kind.  

Senator Kaine is a joyful person who is comfortable with leadership. He's certainly much better qualified to be a public executive than the morose Governor Mike Pence, who has a difficult time explaining who he is or why he wants to be the Vice President. Frankly, Pence is subject to his "Edgar Bergen", being Donald Trump, just won't let him speak unless his puppet strings are being controlled. Obviously, Mike Pence is a follower, a man who will likely be marginalized throughout the remainder of the presidential campaign.

Americans must vote in support of proven leadership! HillaryKaine2016.
