news: Who is Tim Kaine?


WaPo
from the London Economist

Well Michael Timothy Kaine was born February 26, 1958 in St. Paul Minnesota, went to school in Iowa, somehow ended up in Virginia and now is their Senator.

Like the current Veep, he is Irish Catholic, married with children, pro-abortion, pro-immigration, pro-gay. Timbo says he is a devout Catholic,

A year into law school, he went on a missionary trip over an extended summer to the central American Republic of Honduras, where he taught children to weld, his father was one, and gained fluency in Spanish  (HINT HINT)  Back at law school the next year, Timmy met his future wife, Anne Holton, the daughter of former Republican Virginia Gov. A. Linwood Holton. His wife is now of course a real demo.

So why does he matter? He is now Hillary’s running mate.  But all of the above is just filler.   The real key is that he was the DNC Chairman before Debbie Wasserman Schultz and was appointed by Barry Obama. Back in 2008 according to WaPo he “had “very serious” conversations with {the godfather} Obama about joining his ticket” but instead the nod went to the deeply Irish Catholic, Joe Biden from nearby Scranton and Delware Senator. Do you sense a pattern here?
