Tim Kaine..."It really made me scratch my head" RE: Kelly on slavery

I always thought he was an odd VP choice....too vanilla...by that I mean personality, not skin color.....Andrea Mitchell just asked him about Kelly's latest quote RE: slaves. He said 'It really made me scratch my head"...he is just so cornball.....and I am older than he is.... what a STRONG statement....certainly not the firebrand type we need to win.

1. To be fair, most vp candidates aren't firebrands....

I think presidential candidates tend to choose (consciously or not) running mates who won't upstage them.

2. He's a former civil rights lawyer

And represents VA. I get the impression he's well versed in the art of not triggering sensitive white people any more than necessary. Whether or not that's what is needed at the national level is certainly a matter for debate. I'm glad he's my senator regardless.
