Sanders says would prefer Elizabeth Warren over Kaine as vice presidential pick

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reacts as Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen.

Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday that he would have liked to see Hillary Clinton pick a more progressive running mate, such as Sen.

Dwight Bullard, a Florida state senator, said not one of the 70-plus Sanders delegates in his state including himself is happy with Kaine's selection. Some critics have suggested a potential "Kaine Mutiny". "We can't afford to let him do the same thing to our country".

He also vouched for Clinton's trustworthiness, a major liability with voters, telling the crowd, "She has always delivered". "What a novel concept".

On Twitter, Trump sought to drive a wedge between the Clinton campaign and voters who had supported Bernie Sanders, her rival for the Democratic nomination.

One of Hillary Clinton's first stops after the Democratic National Convention this week will be - where else - Ohio. Victories in both would likely put the White House out of reach for Donald Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

The Clinton aide said she ultimately concluded that Kaine met her top consideration - the ability to step in as president if necessary - and she had reached a comfort level with the low-key lawmaker that made her believe he could be a "true partner in governing". ISIS and our other enemies are drooling. "They don't look presidential to me!"

Kaine, 58, is a welder's son and grew up in Kansan City where his father owned a small metalworking shop.


He said in Honduras he learned the values "Fe, familia, y trabajo" - faith, family, and work.

Choking up, Kaine described the Virginia Tech shooting as the “worst day... of my life.”. She said that while Kaine may seem like a "conventional choice", he will balance the ticket well for the general election.

And, as Clinton smiled broadly at her choice for vice president, Kaine greeted the largely Hispanic audience in Spanish.

Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO labor federation, said Kaine's decision to join Clinton in opposing the trade pact "sets an irretrievable, progressive path forward for America".

Clinton tried to reassure party liberals, offering an extended list of Kaine's efforts on behalf of low-income workers, education and civil rights, and for expanded gun control laws and immigration reform. Bernie fought for nothing!”.

Clinton, who will be formally nominated in Philadelphia this week, has planned a post-convention road trip with running mate Sen.

Sanders supporters lost their bid to eliminate or reduce the influence of superdelegates, party leaders who are not bound to any candidate, during a meeting of the convention rules committee in Philadelphia.

Clinton opposed the TPP during the primary against Sanders, citing concerns about job protections and national security. "We're going to be "compañeros de alma, ' in this great 'lucha" ahead", he said, or "soul mates in this great fight ahead".
