    I’m wondering how much weight should be given to the issue raised in “Kaine accepted clothes, vacation as gifts” (above at http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/tim-kaine-virginia-veep-mcdonnell-clinton-224888) in evaluating whether Kaine would be good for Hillary to choose as her running mate.

    Does anyone hear have an opinion on the matter?

      I don’t think it’s a big deal, other than yet again illustrating how f’ed-up Virginia is in terms of ethics.
