As I told the very nice, but befuddled, woman from the Obama campaign on the phone today, if Obama picks Tim Kaine, they can stop calling me for money.
I've given before and I'm planning on giving again, but if Kaine is the VP pick, those future donations go directly into the liquor cabinet fund so I can make it through the years when an anti-choice, anti-gay Democrat is the party's #2 (or, FSM forbid, #1).
I was never a Clinton supporter (I was for Edwards before he dropped out). Still, I think it would be incredibly tone-deaf for Obama to pick a VP who would be seen as a slap in the face to female democrats and to men who care enough about pro-choice issues to understand that they're not peripheral to a progressive agenda.
I've got a nice, fat donation sitting right here, waiting for Obama to announce anyone other than Tim Kaine.
Biden. Donation made.
