1) Article on US vice-presidential selection looks good to me. Essential point is that the running-mate choice says more about the presidential candidate than about the running mate. The choice can rarely if ever help the ticket, but it can always hurt it, so the trick is to avoid doing that.

(Regarding its footnote: though one-time VP Charles Curtis did have Native American ancestry, he was not in his own time generally identified as one. Those were different times, as far as ethnic identification fashion went.)

2) I'm a little skeptical of the 3rd article's implication that May is a sure winner. Those Tory party activists might not be such passive Thatcherites. I was sure that, if Boris Johnson were a candidate, he'd be their choice no matter how much he's despised in Parliament. What they'll do without him seems less clear, but many of them might not accept May.
