If Mr. Trump wins the Republican nomination, would he be wise to throw the convention open for VP?
Typically and traditionally the Republican presidential nominee is selected as a running mate by the nominee. Might there be actual wisdom in allowing the party faithful to choose the VP candidate a majority feel would best help their 2016 quest for the White House? (Remember that the last two VP running mates were Governor Palin and Representative Paul Ryan, and Senator McCain and Governor Romney were unsuccessful against B. H. Obama.
It might well be to Trump's advantage to choose a running mate as soon as he wins the nomination.
But who? I can't think of one person who would help him in the general election. I guess only time will tell.
Trump could do a lot to boost his image by picking Dr. Ben Carson as his HHS Secretary or head of the VA. Fiorina could be head of the Department of Commerce. Scott Walker as Department of Labor.
For VP, Cruz or Rubio would be good choices.
Trump has the economics, business, trade, concerned voters.
Trump has the angry, anti-immigrant, anti-entitlements voters.
Trump will definitely have the anti-establishment voters.
He needs someone who can pull the conservatives, or can help pull a specific state (FL or OH).
What Trump really needs is for Hillary to get hammered with all her corrupt dealings... she needs to be exposed for the sell out she is... she needs to have her feet held to the fire for her part in NAFTA and the Mortgage crisis.
