Video: Tim Kaine Addresses Va. Delegates Breakfast – “It’s a civil rights election”; Emotional Tribute to Joe Montano


According to Virginia delegate Boyd Walker: “Here is a preview of Tim Kaine’s speech to the convention tonight. He really got us fired up and showed why he was chosen. He ended by giving a very moving Tribute to Joe Montano…There was not a dry eye in the room and he brought it back around to immigration reform and all the issues Joe cared about and why we need to elect the Clinton/Kaine ticket.” Also see 17:45 for Tim Kaine’s emotional tribute to Joe Montano, who died two days ago.

  • Video: Donald Trump says Tim Kaine “did a terrible job in New Jersey…first act he did in New Jersey was ask for a $4 billion tax increase and he was not very popular in New Jersey and he still isn’t.” Hahahahaha.

      I know that people from Manhattan think that anything west of the Hudson is the same, but this is pretty bad.

      • To me, what’s really funny about this is that Trump seriously considered NJ Gov. Chris Christie to be his lapdog…er, valet…er, running mate. LOL

          That’s only the second dumbest thing he said this morning. Encouraging the Russian government to hack Clinton’s email took the cake.

          Who knows that verbal diarrhea will spew from his mouth this afternoon and evening.

          • I’d argue what Trump said about Russia is more treasonous and evil than “dumb”

            It’s time for preemptive impeachment of Trump.

          • What’s the legal penalty in this country for treason?

            If trump were charged w treason, any defense lawyer worth anything would get him off easily…. Pleading the insanity defense..

  • Video: Tim Kaine nominated by voice acclamation, name placed in nomination by Rep. Bobby Scott; seconded by Doris Crouse-Mays and Walter Tejada.


  • Excerpts of the President’s Remarks at the Democratic National Convention

    As Prepared for Delivery

    “The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous. Sure, we have real anxieties – about paying the bills, protecting our kids, caring for a sick parent. We get frustrated with political gridlock, worry about racial divisions; are shocked and saddened by the madness of Orlando or Nice. There are pockets of America that never recovered from factory closures; men who took pride in hard work and providing for their families who now feel forgotten. Parents who wonder whether their kids will have the same opportunities we have.

    “All that is real; we’re challenged to do better; to be better. But as I’ve traveled this country, through all fifty states; as I’ve rejoiced with you and mourned with you, what I’ve also seen, more than anything, is what is right with America. I see people working hard and starting businesses; people teaching kids and serving our country. I see a younger generation full of energy and new ideas, unconstrained by what is, and ready to seize what ought to be.”

    “You know, nothing truly prepares you for the demands of the Oval Office. Until you’ve sat at that desk, you don’t know what it’s like to manage a global crisis or send young people to war. But Hillary’s been in the room; she’s been part of those decisions. She knows what’s at stake in the decisions our government makes for the working family, the senior citizen, the small business owner, the soldier, and the veteran. Even in the middle of crisis, she listens to people, and keeps her cool, and treats everybody with respect. And no matter how daunting the odds; no matter how much people try to knock her down, she never, ever quits.

    “That’s the Hillary I know. That’s the Hillary I’ve come to admire. And that’s why I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as President of the United States of America.”
