The speculation for who will be Trump’s VP pick never ends. There have been all sorts of names thrown out there, from Newt Gingrich to Ted Cruz and every name in between. But this latest name is sure to raise a few eyebrows and Trump’s potential is sure to make President Obama furious, mainly because this man was appointed to a high-level government position by the President.
Via Washington Post:
After weeks of focusing on a group of current and former elected officials in his search for a running mate, Donald Trump is increasingly intrigued by the idea of tapping retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn in order to project strength and know-how on national security, according to four people familiar with the vetting process.

Flynn, 57, a registered Democrat but fierce critic of President Obama, previously ran the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Wow. What do you think? Would a general completely change the conversation of the race? Would he be able to reach out to skeptical Republicans and independents? I think it would be intriguing, I think it would appeal to a lot of people who are fearing national instability.
