Has anyone thought about the fact that Virginia governors cannot succeed themselves? If Tim were Obama’s running mate and they were elected, Tim would be entering his last year as Governor in January 2009 He became governor in January 2006 (elected in 2005).
Tim Kaine was the attorney for HOME in Richmond. VA when I was working there and we did several cases together. In fact, he was a reference for me for the second job I had here in Boston with the Boston Housing Authority. I can’t say what he would do for a national ticket, but Tim is thoughtful, smart, and committed to civil rights and still got elected in Virginia. I can understand why Obama would feel so close to him and might want to have hime around to discuss things with.
