A VP for the Trumpster, Part II

A few posts ago I suggested that Trump consider General Mattis [link] as his running mate. I still think    he'd be a good choice, but now I have a better idea. It took a news item to jolt me. Duncan D. Hunter endorsed Trump. [link]  Now, don't confuse Duncan D. Hunter with his dad, Duncan L. Hunter, whom he succeeded in Congress, and who had his own run for President that never quite got off the ground some time back. You can read about Duncan D. here [link]. He has the right idea about immigration, which would make him a better running mate than Cruz, Rubio, or Kasich, who have immigration records ranging from horrible to ambiguous, and he also has all kinds of conservative credentials and a  fantastic military record.

Do use the comments section to comment on this, one way or the other. And if you have any other ideas about who should be Trump's running mate.


  1. I'm still wondering how tainted Petraeus really is. If The Donald is the ultimate outsider (true), doesn't really care what either party thinks (true), is unapologetic (also VERY true), why would Petraeus not necessarily be part of the explanation.

    I think we're on the right track that it'll be a combat vet that'll take the underside of the ticket.

  2. "At an April 2010 Tea Party movement rally in Ramona, California, Hunter advocated for the deportation of United States citizens who are the children of illegal immigrants."

    Awesome! I'm supporting Trump already, but this guy would be icing on the cake.
