Not really, it indicates that McAfee is relatively aware of how the LP works and how to get the attention of those who are in the LP. Judd Weiss, although not the ideal candidate with a ton of accolades made a name for himself with the LP and positioned himself as someone who has ideas to bring the party to a new level.
For the same reason someone like the Arnold can become California governor not for his ability to run a state executive administration but rather his name, McAfee chose Weiss. He's trying to rally the party behind his nomination and for the most part I think he made the right choice.
The LP is so small and insignificant, nobody outside of the party is going to care about McAfee's VP pick. He wants to secure the nomination and he will carry the race into the general with his own name.
Its a pretty simple concept.
