  • 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...

    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.

    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...

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.

    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" rsum that tracks his career moves through various levels of state, party, and federal government. He is being touted by Democrats as someone who...

    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.
