Not sure we'll know the answer for sure until all is said and done re the election but it was certainly interesting to think through what we saw. First thought is that Clinton and Trump's choices tell something about their financial goals for the USA. Each of the debater's records speak clearly for them with one of their states thriving and the other deeply in debt.
Clinton and Trump's choices tell us something about the methods they plan to use. When it comes to being loud and boisterous, both Clinton and Trump are fairly equal, but one chose a man who is a ruthless bully and the other chose one who is far more manly. If I were Clinton I would be thinking twice about the choice and preparing to watch my back closely if elected. Trump's choice is a good indication that, for all his boisterousness, he is willing to bring in a strong advisor with a great record and a gentleman's demeanor.
Clinton's choice in Kaine certainly matches her stance toward the American people. Both try to lead the public into thinking that the government can solve their problems and, so, government should be increased, including on intrusive levels. Their record reveals, though, that they try to hide their real goal which is more money and power for themselves and their ilk, more bondage for the poor and any they can squeeze financially. Trumps's choice in Pence displays at least something of a desire to free the American people from government tyranny and bring it back into a framework that founders wrote about with tremendous insight into the future.
On a personal level for each man, it was striking and sickening that Kaine used his faith to express feeling bad about convicting violent criminals to death for working their savagery on victims but refused to speak for those in the womb whose violent deaths continue. Pence's record of working to protect the innocent whether they are in the womb, or are police and military personnel, or the innocent in poor communities speaks quite well for the advice he would bring to the table on behalf of protecting American people and trying to help the world.
There's much more to look at and little time yet to ponder it all. Who won? An intriguing question. How fed up the American people are is where the answer will be found.
