You may be right.

Drudge and Roll Call are irresponsible, and so is IndyStar.

IndyStar says as a matter-of-fact that Gov. Pence is withdrawing
from the gubernatorial race, yet cites no proof or even a source on this.

They are all being fooled by the 11:00 am announcement, due to the
fact that Pence would withdraw his name by 12:00.

Classic head fake.

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.
I think the boringness of Pence in contrast to Trump is just mind-boggling

I REALLY want Christie, someone who means business when he speaks, for Attorney General. Slap some people around, big guy! Clean out those DOJ attorneys on Day 1. If Giuliani wants a job, he should get one too.

Newt would have made a great debater for the VP debates. Whatever job he gets/takes it should be one where he gets to talk a lot.

And as much as I can't stand Ted Cruz, I'd make him my first Supreme Court pick.

The VP has no positions except the President's position.

No way. What in the world has Ted Cruz done to deserve a seat on the SCOTUS ?
He's not a judge.
You don't award SCOTUS seats to politicians.

Pense is a mistake. He has radical religious views and supports putting gays back in the closet. He also is not vetted as is Newt. That unknown factor opens up the democrat's door to find something on him. If it's true, it's a mistake....a big one.

I am just curious, why do you think it is important that no one should be able to run for office without having to beg the rich and the powerful for money? Ted Cruz believes this, why do you think this should be the law of the land? Your voice will be completely muzzled if people like him have a say.

The most hated man in the Senate? It's doubtful many Republican senators would vote to confirm him, much less the Dems.
