DREAM TICKET: Clinton should pick primary foe as running mate
Jun 9th, 2016 by Warren Swil

Bernie Sanders

for vice president!

Hillary Clinton should pick Bernie Sanders as her vice-presidential running mate.

With presumptive Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton’s place in the history books now assured, her focus must turn to preventing the disaster that would be a Republican victory in the general election.
There is one quick way she could do this – and all but guarantee her return to the White House – by making another historic gesture.
Clinton should immediately select her primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders as her vice-presidential running mate. He should accept the offer graciously as the best way to ensure his agenda gets top priority and secure his hard-earned legacy.
With a Clinton-Sanders team running the country, there is no better way forward for America.

It is a success story worth noting – and it certainly does nothing to hinder Hillary Clinton’s nascent campaign for the presidency in 2016.
It is a bright picture in an otherwise bleak scene emanating from the halls of power, especially in The Capitol this week.

THREE YEARS TO GO: 2016 presidential campaign under way (with video)

HILLARY CLINTON LEADS THE PACK OUT OF THE GATE
It is more than three years until the next time Americans go to the ballot box to elect a president, but there can be no doubt the campaign has already started.
Why is the media – including The New York Times – paying so much attention to a matter so far into the future? It risks turning voters off by the millions. Voter fatigue is a well-researched phenomenon.
Having the media narrative all sewn up three years in advance is anathema to an open election with a true expression of the voters’ opinion.
It is regrettable – but, alas, in America unavoidable.
