          I think the best way to handle it would be for the VP (now presidential candidate) to announce their choice for VP and for the Senate to promise to appoint that person (to fulfill the correct Constitutional mechanism) if that ticket won. That way we would know who we were voting for when we stepped into the booth.

More to the point, that's how we ended up with Senator Al Franken.
                  I know I've said this a lot but I really like Franken. Even if we don't agree on everything. He's respectable and is probably the hardest working senator on capital hill. He keeps his nose clean and his face off the newspaper making sure his constituents are well represented. He is the leader of the resistance against SOPA, the NSA, and any number of other anti-consumer and overreaches of the MIC.

                    Not being from Minnesota, I don't know as much about him, but I like what I hear as well. Man gets his start as a comedian and takes his politics very seriously. Trump treats it all like a poorly written reality show.

                      Also, Why Not Me? is hilarious satire. I thought it was funny, and I was a junior conservative at the time.

                        Ben Carson Threatening to Leave the GOP
                        The retired neurosurgeon lashed out at Republican leaders who discussed the possibility of a “brokered convention” during a recent private dinner meeting in Washington. The Washington Post first reported Thursday that the group, including Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, discussed the sustained strength of billionaire business Donald Trump and the possibility that a consensus nominee might not emerge before the party’s mid-July national convention in Cleveland.

                        “If this was the beginning of a plan to subvert the will of the voters and replace it with the will of the political elite, I assure you Donald Trump will not be the only one leaving the party,” Carson said in a statement that referenced Trump’s repeated threats to leave the GOP if treated “unfairly.”

                        “I pray that the report in the Post this morning was incorrect,” Carson added. “If it is correct, every voter who is standing for change must know they are being betrayed. I won’t stand for it.”
                        He should realize that is precisely what they want. They want Trump and Carson out...

                          Agree on Franken. And as good as he is...IMO he's probably the senator with the second best prospects. Klobuchar has been dynamite. In addition to being one of the most popular politicians in the history of the state, she is on short lists for president. A few months ago, WaPo had her as the politician with the 8th best chance to get the D nomination (beind Clinton and Biden and ahead of Sanders).

                            Klobuchar does nothing for me. She's boring. Has little actual substance and has made some very, very peculiar votes. There was one that was brought up here about six months ago that was particularly troubling.

                            She would be a horrendous candidate right up there with Kerry. You could make a sandwich with those two slices of milquetoast.

                                You must not watch anything that either of them say. If we are talking personality alone, one needs to only look at the Colbert appearance by Klobuchar. It was brutal.

                                Then you have videos of Franken in actual hearings and he makes excellent points while keeping it light and watchable.
