Program Highlights from VP Debate Pregame
Speaking at The Washington Post's PostPartisan VP Debate Pregame Tuesday, Cato Institute's David Boaz said both vice presidential nominees will find it challenging to defend their tickets, given their unique personality traits. When questions about Clinton's trustworthiness arise, "Tim Kaine is a good boy scout to have," Boaz noted. Of Pence, Boaz said the "mild-mannered, Midwestern" Indiana Governor will be there to calm Trump down.
    Speaking at The Washington Post's PostPartisan VP Debate Pregame Tuesday, Brookings Institution's Elaine Kamarck said that the best advice she would give a vice presidential nominee would be to "do what the president wants you to do" and to keep themselves "in the loop." According to Kamarck, a former Clinton White House staffer, every vice president has to "struggle" to stay informed within the White House. She notes that some traditions, such as a weekly private lunch that has existed between the president and vice president since the 1970's, have helped keep the vice president "in the loop."
      Cato Institute's Michael Tanner said Tuesday at The Washington Post's PostPartisan VP Debate Pregame that both Clinton and Trump are "anti-trade,” and "favor huge, new regulations." Tanner's workplace, the Cato Institute, is a libertarian think tank in Washington D.C. that supports free trade and open market policies.
        There's a reason why local and state policymakers tend to support TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) trade policies, Washington Post Global Opinions Columnist said Tuesday night at The Washington Post's PostPartisan VP Debate Pregame. "On the state and local level, they understand that it's in their economic, long-term benefit," Rogin said. "Once the election season is over, then the debate is reset and a lot of the people who are now very cautious -- when they are not up for cycle -- they are allowed to respond to more of the elite constituencies that are influencing them."
