I guess 'noon' Indianapolis time. Indiana is split between Central and Eastern time zones, the capital being firmly in the Eastern zone.


Funny the things you learn in politics.

BORING! The VP debate, I'm going to have to pass on.

On the other hand, I don't see the VP job being all that important unless you watch "Olympus Has Fallen" or "Air Force One."

Interestingly, the VP is one pick not requiring Senate confirmation and Pence would have easily gotten it.

I still think the Attorney General job is more important especially if you plan to be a president who will actually enforce the law and Homeland Security comes next.

No matter who he picks for Secretary of State they'll be better than Kerry or Clinton so not concerned about that one.

By gosh, if Trump is doing so and ends up naming Ivanka, I may vote for the shyster yet! Such deviousness should be rewarded.

Technically, true (of course, the Electoral vote is different). However, Senator McCain certainly lost some votes when he picked Ms. Palin. After all, he was older with a history of recurrent skin cancer, and many did not like what they discovered about Ms. Palin, and in no wise did not want her to be president.


Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton are not young by any means. While Mr. Trump may well be the healthiest man to have ever run for president of the United States (!!), he is 70, when health problems can strike quickly. I think that the VP for each candidate is very important.


I do commend Mr. Trump for not choosing Newt. Not only is Newt 74 (and looks like Death eating a graham cracker), but he would have added little to the ticket; plus, the media would have had fun bringing up his past scandals. Remember when he was reprimanded in Republican-controlled House way back when? 192 Republicans turned against him in that vote.


If the nominee were a young Rubio or a Canadian named Cruz, the VP slot would not hold as much interest for many.



I'm sorry, Mccain lost because the market crashed before the general election and his Iraq war stance which was unpopular in 2008 for the general public and Mccain was viewed as an W BUSH 3rd term who had low approval ratings at the time plus Mccain wasn't popular with the conservative base of the party.

I'm Republican but honest, after W BUSH and the market crashed before the election, there was NO WAY a Republican would have won in 2008.....Mccain could have picked a well known candidate for V.P. and still he would have lost......I blame mostly W BUSH..he didn't do the party any favors in 2006 and 2008......GOP lost congress in 2006 and 2008, that's mostly on W BUSH....a reason his brother Jeb was rejected badly in the primaries.



Pence is not Sarah Palin.....so we can agree that is not going to hurt Trump.....Trump needed to unite the conservative social wing of the party and he did it with this pick......he couldn't choose an establishment RINO.

They will all be wrong, Trump wants to humiliate the gossipy press.

How is this a good choice? Pence would add absolutely nothing to the ticket. What's even worse is that he holds completely opposite views on a number of Trump's core issues including free trade and foreign entanglement.

Well, the reason we have horse races is due to different opinions:


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...votes-in-2008/


As this study said, those lost votes would not have made a difference, but said study does claim that Ms. Palin cost Senator McCain 2 million votes.

They do agree on bringing in foreign workers to take Americans' jobs.
