  1. If you want to maintain a high number of posts per day, you could always start quoting huge sections of the 'SUN' newspaper instead. Not that you'd be the first
  2. If the player wins the nomination he/she would choose the running mate as in real life. If not then the player could make an offer to the candidate which could then be refused or excepted depending on platform, state, electibility et.c.
