    Vice President Mike Pence will work to undermine any North Korean attempt to normalize its regime at the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea, according to a report."The vice president will remind the world that everything the North Koreans do at the Olympics is a charade to cover up the fact that they are the most tyrannical and oppressive regime on the planet," one of Pence's aides told Axios of Pence's role as leader of the White House's delegation to the sporting event. "We are seeing unprecedented level of international cooperation on the maximum pressure strategy targeting the...

  • 37 million viewers: Audience for VP debate was smallest

    Hot Air.com ^ | October 5, 2016 | ALLAHPUNDIT
    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...
  • Had to Turn VP Debate Off. Kaine Acting Snarky

    Have been watching the Vice President Debate. Gov. Mike Pence was grace under fire. Sen. Tim Kaine was sure acting snarky. The debate moderator was either helping Sen. Kaine or simply lost control. It got so bad I had to turn it off. At least it will show folks how calm Gov. Pence even when the questions were focused on Mr. Donald J. Trump.

    Hot Air.com ^ | September30, 2016 | ALLAHPUNDIT
    Besides Gary Johnson, he means, right? Doesn’t he? Or was Carl Bernstein right that Weld, a Massachusetts centrist, would end up defecting from the ticket and trying to help Clinton down the stretch if he got spooked that a Trump presidency is a real possibility? He’s much more complimentary of Johnson in the clip below than the headline above would suggest, as you’ll see (the key line about Hillary comes near the very end), but it’s odd nonetheless for a candidate in one party to say that no one’s more qualified than a candidate from another. It’s not the only...

    Pence needs to bring up the following points: 1. Did you resign from DNC Chair to allow Debbie Wasserman-Shultz who was Hillary's 2008 election campaign chair to assume the position and assure Hillary's victory in the 2016 primary? Was your being the VP the Payoff? 2. Was your being selected as Hillary's VP a result of the influence by Terry McAuliffe being on Hillary's VP selection team and a result of his loaning Hillary $1.3 million to purchase Hillary's Chapaqua house? 2. Did Terry McAulffe's influence on Hillary have anything to do with the shady deals with Hillary's brother Tony...

"I am honored and excited to announce that my running mate in the 2016 presidential election will be Ajamu Baraka . . .

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – Nina Turner, the Democratic former state senator from Cleveland who has emerged as a rallying figure for Bernie Sanders' disappointed supporters, said she is considering an offer to run for vice president on the Green Party's national ticket. Massachusetts physician Jill Stein, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, reached out with the pitch, Turner told cleveland.com Sunday evening in a telephone interview. The Green Party opens its convention Thursday in Houston. Turner would stand for nomination there if she agrees to be Stein's running mate. Her decision is expected in the coming days.

    I hate to be the one to rain – or even sprinkle – all over the merry Tim Kaine parade. But someone has to. It’s time to shake off the he’s-so-much-nicer-than-Hillary-and-he-speaks-Spanish euphoria to ask Kaine to explain his conduct during his final days in Virginia’s governor’s mansion. The issue concerns a convicted murderer serving life in prison and Kaine’s last-minute move to quietly spring him. We’re going to talk about Jens Soering today. Members of the national press corps ought to be asking Kaine about the Soering matter every day – at least until the veep hopeful from Virginia comes...

    The Democratic National Committee shut down the plot to field a vice presidential challenger to Sen. Tim Kaine … by stalling on paperwork! Breitbart News has learned that the DNC used Office Space tactics to shut down the anti-Kaine effort, which we reported on Monday as it was developing among pro-Bernie delegates on the convention floor. The roll call vote to nominate Hillary Clinton and Kaine will occur Tuesday.

    Truncated title. Full title: EXCLUSIVE: Bernie Delegates Plot Commotion on the Convention Floor to Protest Hillary-Kaine and Challenge Kaine as Running Mate! Disenfranchised Bernie Sanders delegates are talking intensely behind the scenes about how to disrupt the Democratic National Convention to protest the Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine ticket. Breitbart News has learned that some groups of delegates are considering nominating a vice presidential challenger to Clinton’s pick Tim Kaine. Others are discussing a potential walkout by Sanders delegates. But Sanders’ speech Monday afternoon urging people to vote for Clinton seems to have damaged the plans, prompting some pro-Bernie delegates...

    Most pundits consider Tim Kaine a safe, if boring, vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton. For those who truly understand the frontrunner, Kaine is an apt pick. Like Mike Pence, he is not exceptionally attention-grabbing. Neither of them has to be. The two top dogs in the race already have all the deep-throated growl they need. Kaine has been operating in the political arena for over 22 years. He has an all too familiar "insider" résumé that tracks his career moves through various levels of state, party, and federal government. He is being touted by Democrats as someone who...
