4. Who Hillary picks as her running mate doesn't matter. For me it's all going to come down to

voting with my heart or voting out of fear.

I fear a Trump presidency. But I also fear a Hillary presidency, for different reasons.
I fear Trump worse because he is so clueless about how government works and he is so bombastic.

Living in Arizona & being 60 I am also thinking that for once in my life I should vote for the person I believe in.
I just may write in Bernie (if he's not the nominee, yes I still have hope).

As far as Hillary's running mate, it doesn't matter.
Hillary will still be at the top of the ticket, she will be the one with the power should she be elected.
