    Looks like another wonderful late, late night! Wot! Who comes first, Tim Kaine or PBO?

  11. July 27, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    “Politics isn’t all about policy and rhetoric. It’s also about the person — their family life, their hobbies, and how they can connect with their voter base on a human level. Which is why voters should probably check out the videos of Tim Kaine playing the harmonica. Yes, that’s right, America. The presumptive Democrat nominee for vice president plays the harmonica. Often. And in public. The Virginia senator has a lot of personality. Many have called Kaine “boring,” but anyone who jams on a harmonica, it seems to me at least, has a little something in him…..His skill on the harmonica has allowed him to jam seamlessly with professionals and amateurs, and earn the respect of Virginians, not just as a governor or a senator who has a hobby he likes to use politically, but also as a musician.“One Sunday I’m there in the circle playing banjo and suddenly TV cameras show up,” said Alan Graf, “Tim Kaine walks in, and he sits down and someone goes that’s Senator Tim Kaine…Mr. Graf was “leading” the song that Mr. Kaine joined in on, which in bluegrass means he can dictate who gets to take a solo during a break. “And we’re playing, and I notice Tim’s looking at me,” he said. “And I figured it was time for a solo. So I gave him the nod,” he said with a pause, laughing. “Like Hillary.” Mr. Kaine — who will accept his party’s nomination as Hillary Clinton’s running mate on Wednesday night in a speech before the Democratic convention —- jumped in without missing a beat. “But he took it, he took it, man,” Mr. Graf said. “He just jumped on it. He was ready to go, and he took a pretty mean harp solo….continued”

      It is – he sounds a little nervous. Talk that the Californian berniebots want to disrupt his speech may have caused that.
      His speech with Hillary was a blinder – he’ll do well campaigning

    Been really inspired today (been watching on C-span). The line-up has been top-notch; accomplished, smart, talented, inspiring, people who have accomplished real things in the world.
    Michael Bloomberg, while not one of my favorite people, is just the person that Bernie Bros and reluctant Independents need to hear.
    The organizers of this convention have done a very good job.
    Waiting on PBO to put the final icing on the cake.
    Tim Kaine is a hoot with his Trump impersonation “Believe me.”

He doesn’t “need” to be President – he’s not sorry he’s turning it over (like Bill was, like Bernie is).
