1. We finally bring a badly needed Third Party to the table
2. First Female VP might still, in this not so "evolved" era, be easier to swallow than first Female President for too many - we are still far from being an enlightened nation in many parts of the country.
3. Jill would be a worthy president and in turn will also be a worthy Veep. This Bernie/Jill combo will seriously be unbeatable.
4. If Bernie is ready to hand off the torch in 4 years, Jill will only be 70 and have a great chance at picking up where he left off without missing a beat, as the first Female President AND we end up with potentially 12 years - which still isn't enough - to turn things around.
My final thought is I just can't see that Bernie could work under HRC's thumb and it might actually tarnish his image in the long run, because as you know, nothing is her fault. She'd run him under the bus anytime and anywhere, as she has already done throughout this campaign. Might be wrong, but you asked! Thanks for asking me my thoughts. I'm flattered.
Tamara Myers; I am 58 and have been a lifelong Democrat. I will not vote for Hillary even if Bernie is her VP. I will vote for ANYONE who can beat her in the election.
Sheridan Lorraine commented on your post in Ohio Progressives: I agree. If either Trump or Hillary is President, we need as many strong, experienced progressives in the House and Senate as possible. For that reason, I really don't want Bernie, Warren, Gabbard to be his VP - but esp. not Bernie.
