Cafe Society to discuss potential running mate for Hillary Clinton

By Staff | May 23, 2016

This past week’s Cafe Society discussion focused on “Who we think will be Donald Trump’s running mate.” The group identified a number of potential running mates and their strengths, but settled on no one in particular being the leading candidate.

At the May 24 gathering, the group will identify potential vice presidential nominees for the Democratic national ticket, and identify and discuss each one’s strengths, weaknesses and likelihood of being on the ticket.

Cafe facilitator Art Wineburg said, “Hillary Clinton has participated in presidential elections beginning as a student in 1964, and most notably in the successful campaigns of her husband and her own failed campaign in 2008. She no doubt believes she knows her strengths and weaknesses as a candidate, and it will be interesting to see how the attendees this next Tuesday view them and how they may affect her choice of ticket mate.”

Those wishing to participate in the discussion should come to the Rumsey Room of the Shepherd University Student Center this Tuesday morning, at 8:30 a.m. While discussions sometimes outlast the scheduled 90 minutes, one is free to leave at any time. Pre-registration is not required and there are no fees or charges. The topic for the following week’s session will be chosen by the end of the week’s session.

The Cafe Society continues to meet on an informal basis throughout the summer.
