Kaine endorses Hillary Clinton for President (if she runs)

Washington (CNN) – Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine’s trip to South Carolina this weekend to address the state Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson Dinner comes with dash of 2016 presidential intrigue.

A Spanish-fluent former Democratic Party chairman and one-time governor from an emergent swing state in the South, Kaine’s understated political skills and sterling reputation among party insiders would make him an instantly credible White House candidate, if a dark horse.
