JOBS WHITE PEOPLE WON'T DO:

Both Joni Ernst and Bob Corker are backing away from being Trump's VP (Becca Stanek, 7/06/16, The Week)

Donald Trump's VP shortlist may have just gotten two names shorter. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told The Washington Post on Wednesday that he'd taken himself out of the running to be Trump's ticket-mate, saying that "there are people far more suited for being a candidate for vice president, and I think I'm far more suited for other types of things." Corker, who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he'd already told Trump he wasn't comfortable with being vice president, a position he called a "highly political job, and that's not who I am."

While Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) wasn't quite so honest with Trump, she dropped a big hint that she didn't think being veep was for her. "I made that very clear to him that I'm focused on Iowa," Ernst said Wednesday.

He'll only be able to get someone whose career is already over.
