Wondering about Vice Presidential candidates
First of all, if you don’t like the candidates that you have, you can almost bet that they will not pick a VP that is equal to or greater than themselves. American voters have little say in the leading candidates making the choice, except to accept or reject the entire ticket.
Democrats will most likely select Hillary Clinton. Rumored is that she might pick a woman running mate. That would appropriate since there has been a long deficit in women heading the executive branch of government.
In fact, women have been deficiently represented in Congress.
I proposed that for every Congressional District Representative and Senator that there be two seats, one woman, and one man. That would double the seats in Congress in both branches. That is a good idea because the workload is too high for the present staffing. That would ensure a measure of gender equality.
Who are the leading women Democrats who “could be” qualified to run for president?
