This just keeps gets more real:
In an interview conducted on Thursday, Kmiec said he is running because the Holy Father — Pope Francis — is a source of inspiration.
A devout catholic, Kmiec said he is running as an independent because it’s an honest label for someone who has supported democrats and republicans in the past. Kmiec served as a constitutional lawyer under the Reagan administration and supported President Obama in the 2008 U.S. presidential election.
Kmiec said that if he were to win the election, one of the first things he would “roll his sleeves up for” would be a push for a sensible immigration law and a vastly improved education initiative that would address “the needs of modern job responsibilities” and the imbalance in wealth distribution.
Kmiec said that if he wins the election, he would hope to be considered as an option to become the vice-president in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“I see it as an outside possibility … The idea of running for Congress is to put myself in a position where I’m able to both lead in the interim while she’s running for president and be ready for greater responsibility should that be God’s blessing and his wisdom,” he said.
Apparently the full transcript will be released on Jan. 23.
