FORCED TO REBUKE OUR OWN:

Obama and Nikki Haley: in State of the Union speeches, a common message : At a time when fiery rhetoric appears to be ascendant, both President Obama and GOP responder Nikki Haley called for tolerance and lowered voices. (Linda Feldmann, JANUARY 13, 2016, CS Monitor)

On State of the Union night, an extraordinary thing happened: The Democratic president and the Republican tasked with responding to his address issued the same message. [...]

Both, in their own way, implicitly went after the loudest voice in the political arena: Donald Trump, front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, whose calls to ban Muslims from entering the country and harsh rhetoric against illegal immigrants have dismayed both Democrats and the Republican establishment.

Instead of settling for VP, she should have gotten into this race.
