Interesting enough politician; I'd never heard of him before, but that's not saying much (although I do stay politically informed).
Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine took the stage at the Texas Democratic Party's annual convention last month and began by offering the standard party dogma. As national co-chairman of Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign, he offered the proper tribute to Sen. Hillary Clinton and urged everyone to now "come together" behind his candidate. Then he paused, and broke into fluent Spanish. The huge ballroom, which included hundreds of pro-Clinton Hispanics, erupted in cheers.
His record is spotty, yet Virginia is an important state for Democrats. Interestingly, he's a Roman Catholic, and religious.
