Instead of Hillary Clinton, on the right wing of the Democratic Party, choosing a left wing Democrat, like Bernie Sanders or Senator Elizabeth Warren, she chose a candidate of the same ‘blue dog’ right wing as herself.

Hillary Clinton Picks Virginia Senator Tim Kaine for VP, Frustrating Sanders Delegates. Clinton calls him progressive, but critics say he’s too pro-corporate: here.
However, when it comes to progressives, Kaine isn’t necessarily the best pick. The Virginia Senator came under fire earlier this week after signing a letter in support of easing big bank regulations. Charles Chamberlain, the executive director of Democracy for America released a statement on Thursday that suggested Kaine would not be a good pick, considering “his vote for fast track authority for the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership and this newly uncovered push for bank deregulation“: here.

In signal to military, Hillary Clinton picks Senator Tim Kaine as running mate
23 July 2016
Presumptive Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton selected Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her vice presidential running mate on Friday. The announcement, made in advance of next week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, was originally due to be made at a rally in Tampa, Florida but was instead delivered hours later over Twitter.
In selecting Kaine, Clinton is making clear that she plans on running a right-wing, pro-war campaign targeted at winning over the military and sections of the Republican Party dissatisfied with Trump, and particularly the Republican candidate’s attitude toward Russia.
Kaine occupies a position on the right wing of the party, one of the so-called “blue dog Democrats,” and is among the most hawkish figures among Senate Democrats. As governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010, Kaine oversaw billions of dollars in cuts to the state budget. The state of Virginia is a major center for the military and defense industry, and is home to the Pentagon and the headquarters of the CIA.
Between 2009 and 2011, Kaine served as the head of the Democratic National Committee, the leadership body of the Democratic Party. He is close to Wall Street, having recently backed measures to deregulate banks.
These no-fly zones are the idea of the not-so-humanitarian NATO ally, the Erdogan regime in Turkey. They would be an escalation of war, increasing chances of Russia-NATO war. Which would not ‘alleviate’ suffering, but greatly increase it, in Syria and potentially worldwide.
