This will be brief.
It is NOT an endorsement of any kind.
It is merely a “what of” — imagining a possibility.
It is provoked in part by watching Mayor Pete over the last few weeks.
It is also provoked in part by now having read about ½ of his book,Shortest Way Home (which I highly recommend eve if you are already committed to another candidate).
So here it is:
What if Mayor Pete were our VICE-PRESIDENTIAL candidate?
Now think about a debate — between this openly gay and very articulate young man and another Indianan, the homophobic Vice-President Mike Pence.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll bet here would be a huge audience, and that Mayor Pete would verbally fillet him.
Just a thought exercise.
