Tim Kaine Calls State Borders ‘Just a Dotted Line, a Boundary’
Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine told a small crowd at Carnegie Mellon University that states borders are merely “a dotted line” and a “boundary,” while states which consider themselves to be part of the commonwealth are “aspirational.”
“America only gets in trouble when we’re not together,” Kaine said.
“When we push people away from the table or divide against one another. He said “46 states just call themselves states. But four of us — Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky and Massachusetts — we’re kind of, a little bit more aspirational. We don’t call ourselves states; that’s just a dotted line, a boundary, a political subdivision. We call ourselves commonwealth.” He added, “the wealth we hold, we hold in common. We’re stronger together. And that’s why Hillary Clinton chose that as the theme for the campaign.”
