Kaine and Hillary in the White House: ‘We’re Going to be Real Transparent

He wasn’t trying to be funny.

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) helped explain away running mate Hillary Clinton’s e-mail “mistake” and told NBC's Chuck Todd that going forward, the two plan on being “real transparent.”

"I know that is this something that she's learned from, and we're going to be real transparent, absolutely,” Kaine assured, with an absolutely straight face.

This was despite Todd playing a nicely edited recap of Clinton’s blatant lies to the public and her twisting of the FBI’s take last week to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. Kaine has obviously been trained well in Clinton-ese because he started the spin cycle when speaking to Todd:

"She was saying what Director Comey acknowledged to be true, that when she spoke to the FBI ... the FBI thought her answers in that setting were truthful. Chris might have been asking her a different question."

Todd asked how he and Clinton plan on doing things differently if elected and other than the whopper that they will be transparent, Kaine felt he would have no idea how he is going to be as a vice president:

"I am not presumptuous enough to start thinking about how I'm going to do things after November."

He sounds real confident.

However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
