    Obama had surprisingly picked republicans, some of which were admittedly good choices, so it's fascinating that Trump is reaching out to Democrats.

    I call FUD on this article. When is the last time Ben Carson was awake long enough to form a complete sentence.

    I can't imagine some Democrat taking the job after the things Trump has said, but if one did, how would that make the Republican Trump supporters here feel? Would it make you feel less good about Trump because he went with some awful liberal?

    If Trump did this, I suspect at least a third of the Convention attendees would spontaneously combust.

    Are you under the impression that there are no conservative (or moderate) Democrats?

    What about the Trump Sanders ticket. Imagine the **** flying in the Hillary camp.

    I'm under the impression no Democrat would want to be linked to a guy who labels large numbers of Hispanics as rapists, talks negatively about women's looks and where they bleed from, mocks the disabled, gets his news from the national enquirer and gives interviews to conspiracy theorists.

    Oh, sorry. I guess I misread, or misunderstood this very complex question...

    "Would it make you feel less good about Trump because he went with some awful liberal?"

    Of which no one has bothered to answer yet.

    I've heard Jim Webb's name floated. Probably palatable to the GOP and scots-irish ***hole enough to fit Trump's aggrieved white man political positioning.

    Talk about squirming away from a simple point!

    You made the obvious assumption that if Trump picked a Democrat as a running mate, that that individual would be a liberal. I simply asked you if you thought all Democrats were liberal by default, or if you would accept the fact that there are some conservative or moderate Democrats.

    You've been sliding around answering that simple query since.

    It wouldn't just be in the Hillary camp. Heads across the nation would be popping like bloated zits on an ugly teenager's crusty nose.

    ...enjoy your dinner. :)

    Yeah, because being politically correct is the most important requirement in a President. /s

    BTW, more than 60000 registered Democrats in Pennsylvania that switched to Republican to vote for Trump.

    Trump's kids never switched parties, so he could still conceivably choose one of them as his running mate and be choosing a Democrat.

    But someone still needs to tell him that once he's done this, he can't just fire his veep.

    Does it really matter. The people that voted for Obama did not vote for him because of Joe Biden nor did the people that voted for Romney because he picked Ryan.

    Sliding around? You attempted to change my question. It's not the question asked. By very definition, democrats are more liberal than Republicans. Which is why many Republicans refer to Democrats as "Democraps" and other assorted names I will not reprint here. Thus your attempt to move the goalpost fails epicly.

    Trump has already refuted Carson's comments and stated he will select a Republican running mate.

    My question didn't ask what Democrats thought about Trump. It asked about how Republicans would feel about having a Democrat as Trump's running mate.

    Funny how so many are having difficulty answering that question.
