In case you missed...
Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia (left), meanwhile, is still the odds-on favorite to be Hillary's vice president.
Gov. Pence, a former Congressman, was once a right-wing radio host in Indiana and has been described as "Rush Limbaugh on decaf." I get why Trump would want him: he has Washington experience, is a "true conservative," would reassure the party establishment and could actually serve in the Oval Office if called upon. He's a great "get" for Trump.
Why Pence would want the job, though, is a bit of a mystery to me. The Donald is bound to get crushed in November; why would anyone with a future in Republican politics want to hitch their wagon to his star?
