I recently read a letter to the editor that praised both vice presidential candidates. The writer wished that they were at the head of their tickets. Consequently, he is going to vote for the least healthy presidential candidate in the hope that the vice president will have to take over.
What a terrible thing to say. At any rate, the Vice Presidential candidates, Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence, will debate tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET. Details after the jump.
Normally, I’d live-blog the event, but I’ll be on the road and talking about vocation tonight. But you feel free to comment on the debate, right here at this post.
