A smart pick by Ted Cruz. If he gets the nomination (which is unlikely) this will help in the general in two ways:
- Voters are guaranteed a historic first either way – either the first female VP or the first female President
- Fiorina can attack Clinton more aggressively than Cruz can, without being called sexist etc
Her business record would be more of an issue if she was the presidential candidate, but I don’t think it will be an issue as VP.
I actually said a few months ago I think she’d be a good VP choice.
But of course it is more likely Trump will be the nominee. Will be interesting which poor sucker he picks to be his VP candidate. He has said it will not be an outsider like him, but someone with political experience.
