Michael Flynn as Trump’s VP Nominee?

So there are reports that Michael Flynn, a retired three star general and a former head of Defense Intelligence Agency, might be Trump’s nominee.

This is not a shocker:  Flynn has been linked to Trump for months already, dating all the way back to last Winter (although I cannot seem to find news articles claiming this linkage earlier than February.)  This would make for an interesting  combination:  Trump’s foreign policy position, of not antagonizing major powers, being tough on terrorists, but without getting involved in entangling long term commitments overseas, has been described as largely a reflection of Flynn’s worldview as well.  Of course, while a critic of the Obama administration (and a much more vociferous one of Hillary Clinton), Flynn is also a Democrat.  This could make for a fascinating pick.
