As an armchair pundit, this strategy by HRC was not the right card to pull against a ticket of two other old white man.

Let me point out to you that in historical terms the significance of this is no different than Obama the first Black American running for president. Hillary is the first woman to ever rise to this place nothing is going to change that. So she chose a white guy... Obama who was just as history changing also chose a white guy. Both Biden and Kaine are men participating history changing events... that takes some kinda nuggets in both their parts.... because there is no safety in what they are doing
Trump played it safe with his choice. Bernie well who knows whom he would have chosen... there has already been a Geraldine Ferraro... so no wowsers there.
There will be zero enthusiasm for Hillary now. We thught she was finally becoming more progressive, now we know she was pretending. I think Bernie will be reconsidering how much effort he will actually put forth to help her get elected. I know I will.

I firmly believe that you have no way of knowing that. You know know what your thoughts and intentions are. So far you have let us know you are angry... and right now have no intention of voting for Hillary and you think that those of us who plan to vote for Hillary will be to blame if Trump wins. That is skewed logic. I am committed to having Trump lose and to have Hillary win. You say that Berniebots will not turn out and vote for Hillary and she can't win without your vote. Sounds to me as if your commitment is for Hillary to lose even if it means Trump is to win. So if you think the Bernie base is as powerful as you envision... and you take the kinds of actions you allude to... well if Trump wins it will be on you and not on those of us who took practical measures to prevent that from happening. Either way you lose.
All the crap that is going on around Hillary reminds me of when Obama was running and the clowns claim of what his platform was going to be .. all that peace and love nonsense... never did he run on that but the clowns sure talked him up in that way. So when it turns out Obama was a scrapper... well everyone now has their panties in a twist.
Hillary and Bernie were not that far away on pertinent issues. Personally I think Hillary has a more practical approach to attaining it.
