Vices and Virtues of Vice-Presidential Race
It looks like Bernie Sanders have lost all hope to become the next President of the United States because he recently expressed expectation that if Hillary Clinton becomes the official Presidential nominee from the Democratic Party, she does not choose her Vice President from Wall Street. Seriously, if he’s so close to giving up, maybe he shouldn’t become our next President? But if not him, then who? We all know that when U.S. Presidents come to the Office, they choose their own “partners in crime”, including Vice President, with whom they participate in the Elections as a “two for the price of one” kind of deal.
Truthfully, I have no idea who Donald Trump would choose as his running mate, but if I were him, I’d join the forces with Ted Cruz, the next popular candidate from the Republican Party, or someone that American public may like. However, when it comes to Hillary Clinton, one can only guess who she will choose. She may ask her husband to run with her, making him the first U.S. President to return to the Office as Vice President after serving as President. However, I think this country is getting tired of all “the firsts” and may not go for it. After all, it will then look like a family mafia is running the whole country.
Hillary may, of course, pick someone who is going to keep an eye on her and ensure her loyalty to Wall Street and U.S. Military-Industrial Complex, her main benefactors. That would be very bad news for American people because then we will head straight into the World War III with Russia, China and maybe even India. Given the amount of Chinese and Indians currently residing within the United States, our country will soon be in chaos even if no nuclear weapons will be used by anyone.
Her last and most logical choice, therefore, would be to pick a dear old Bernie Sanders to become her running mate for the Office. She will then show to American public her non-existent compassion and ability to share her wins with former adversaries, ability to negotiate and join forces with “the enemy” in order to reach her goals, and the wisdom and sneakiness of a snake that, let’s face it, she probably is… And hey, she will then keep all his voters who would otherwise probably go and pledge allegiance to Donald Trump, a Media-made enemy of the whole political “Establishment” and of the lower income U.S. population alike. This sounds like a win-win situation, but the question remains: “If Bernie Sanders is given a chance to run with Hillary Clinton and become the next Vice President of the United States of America, will he allow our Missеs President to stage an all-out World War that will definitely evolve into a war on American soil?” If he does, we all are doomed. If he doesn’t, we may still have a chance, but why risk it? Let’s just vote for Donald Trump and “make Russian President Vladimir Putin very happy”, as Mrs. Clinton have recently put it in her desperate attempts to win this ultimate prize needed to rule (and destroy) the World. Perhaps then we will have a better chance of avoiding a nuclear war on this Planet.
