Democratic VP Pick Tim Kaine's Greatest Harmonica Hits

Ever since Hillary Clinton tapped Tim Kaine as her running mate, people have lamented how boring and bland he is. But those people obviously haven't heard the Virginia senator rock the harmonica. Simply put, he has game on the mouth organ good enough to jam with Bill Clinton on the saxophone. Maybe they'll form a band.

Check out his greatest hits to see for yourself.

1. The Democratic Beatle

During a speaking event at Cosby High School in Midlothian, Virginia last March, Kaine serenaded the audience with a mystery song and asked them to guess what it was. See if you can figure it out. Hint: it's not "Old MacDonald," so don't make that guess unless you want to get under Kaine's skin.

2. Jamming with 'Sessions'

In 2011, Senator Kaine lend his mouth organ to Freeda Cathcart's campaign for a seat in the Virginia legislature. Unfortunately, Kaine's jam with local band Sessions wasn't enough to beat Cathcart's Republican opponent. 

3. "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

In his final year as governor of Virginia, Kaine teamed up with violinist Boyd Tinsley (of The Dave Matthews Bandand made this Bob Dylan classic his swan song.

4. "Sittin' on Top of the World"

While serving as the 70th governor of Virginia, Kaine joined bluegrass band The Seldom Scene to perform this folk-blues classic in 2008. 

5. "Man of Constant Sorrow"

Kaine's harmonica got a decent workout in 2008. That year, he also teamed up with The Dan Tyminski Band to cover the hit song from the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack. His notes are overpowered by the banjo and violin for most of the song, but check out his harmonica solo at the 2:15 mark.

2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker (D-NJ) has announced a plan to grant clemency to thousands of people serving time for federal drug convictions. Last Thursday, Booker released his 'Restoring Justice' plan, which would offer clemency to more than 17,000 individuals who are currently doing time for nonviolent drug convictions. Booker pledged to implement the plan immediately upon taking office via an executive order as a means to address the huge disparities in drug policing.
