Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, 54, is said to be another of Hillary Clinton‘s favorites for a possible vice-presidential running mate. Perez is bright, Latino, personable, mild-mannered, a good guy, toothy, highly educated, bald. He clearly has more progressive pizazz than Hillary’s boring-white-guy favorites, Tim Kaine and Tom Vilsack. Perez is clearly more progressive than these two bowls of room-temperature soup. But he still doesn’t have “it”. No snap, virility, hormonal magnetism. Elizabeth Warren is the only high-energy, rock-and-roll, revivalist alternative, and Hillary (whom I’m learning to hate all over again) can’t decide what kind of boring she wants from her vice-presidential partner.
