A 6.19 N.Y. Times story reports that the most appealing vp candidate to potentially run with Hillary ClintonElizabeth Warren — is “unlikely,” presumably because male hinterland voters would recoil at the idea of a granny ticket. Amy Chozick and Thomas Kaplan‘s story also mentions New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and HUD Secretary Juan Castro, whom I would be okay with. But other candidates — Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez, California Representative Xavier Becerra and Virginia Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner — sound dreary as fuck. My money’s on Booker — balls, a skilled orator, the requisite fire in the blood.
