Who is Donald Trump's running mate going to be? I mean, all jokes aside (and I know it's almost irresistible), who in the hell is going to complete this Ticket of the Damned?
I feel like they'll want someone who isn't another East Coast guy, which rules out Chris Christie. But I do think they'll definitely want a governor, to add executive experience to the ticket.
I'm thinking maybe Nikki Haley? She's the Governor of South Carolina, so she brings regional cred Trump doesn't have, plus she's a woman of color.
The thing is, IIRC, Trump has talked shit about Haley before, and I'm not sure she'd want the job.
That's actually going to be a big problem across the board: Lots of potential candidates who simply don't want to be part of a Trump ticket.
At this point, it's regarded as a losing ticket, so it would have to be someone who is willing to lose in order to set themselves up for a presidential run next time around. And also someone who is willing to risk permanent Trump-stank.
The list of people who fit that bill seems very short to me.
