Sessions makes no sense. Trump is going to face unprecedented resistance from the GOP leadership in both the House and the Senate. Why would he voluntarily remove his most erstwhile and powerful Congressional ally from the Senate just so he can get shipped off to attend funerals?
Christie, sadly, I think has already been promised the AG position in exchange for his support. I wish Christie were the VP nominee because I don't want Christie anywhere near real power, but I think Christie as AG is a done deal.
Falin is just on the list because they needed to put a woman on the list and Trump is feuding with Martinez. Actually picking a woman would project weakness and Trump is too smart for that. But no harm and much benefit in including a woman your fake list.
Gingrich would be an excellent pick in a lot ways but the one big problem with Gingrich is his massive ego. Trump already brings ego in spades. What does he need another unpredictable, outspoken, loudmouth on the ticket for?
The nominee will be Scott Brown. He's extremely good looking (something Trump places enormous significance on), polished, popular among blue collar voters and women, and disciplined enough to play ball and be an obedient foot soldier.
