The short answer is: Republican Gov. Mike Pence (left) of Indiana  and Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine (right) of Virginia.

Hillary Clinton,Tim Kaine

… despite some iffy decisions in both mens’ records, it seems to me that each is better qualified to be President of the United States than is their party’s candidate.
