WNU Editor: Both Roll Call and the New York Times are announcing this. What's my take .... I predicted this yesterday .... Donald Trump To Choose Indiana Governor Mike Pence As His Vice President Running Mate (My Prediction). As to what is my take on this choice .... I do not know enough on Governor Mike Pence to forward an opinion .... so please give me time as I research on who is he, his positions on the issues, and what will he bring to the Republican ticket. As to who will be Hillary Clinton's choice .... I give credit to her and her staff .... unlike the Trump team the Clinton team is keeping their discussions and vetting process under tight wraps.

I'm not sure why she deserves "credit" here. America is supposed to be a government for the people, by the people. As such, a candidate who believes in such principles would be expected to have the vetting process for someone as important as Vice President as transparent as possible. By keeping this "under tight wraps" as to how they are vetting candidates and how the process is carried out team Clinton seems to be indicating they do not care about such things.

On the contrary, it seems to be Mr. Trump who deserves "credit" for making this process as public as possible and for having his supports come on news stations where and when possible to explain the nuances of how this process works for team Trump. In a "democracy", it would seem reasonable to expect such things.
