Fellow senators on both sides of the aisle have kind&nbsp;words for&nbsp;Virginia's&nbsp;Tim Kaine.Not surprisingly,&nbsp;Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, praised Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick."Through hard work and unimpeachable character, Tim Kaine has become a highly respected member of the Senate &mdash;&nbsp;among Democrats and Republicans alike," Reid said.More unexpected was the praise from the other side of the partisan divide, including&nbsp;Sen.&nbsp;Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, who said that&nbsp;&ldquo;while Hillary Clinton would be a disaster as president, I have high regard and respect for Tim Kaine."Toomey, just finishing his first term,&nbsp;is in a tough reelection battle in his home state,&nbsp;where Democrats are converging on Philadelphia for their convention.&nbsp;Siding with the moderate, likable Kaine might help Toomey&nbsp;broaden his appeal,&nbsp;especially among suburban voters who may have reservations about the GOP nominee, Donald Trump.&nbsp;The two have worked together on budget bills&nbsp;and legislation to stem opioid&nbsp;addiction and gun violence."He is a good choice for the Democratic ticket," Toomey said.&nbsp;Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who&nbsp;isn't up for reelection this November, also had nice things to say about Kaine."Trying to count the ways I hate&nbsp;@timkaine," Flake wrote on Twitter. "Drawing a blank. Congrats to a good man and a good friend."Others offered similar personal praise."Just FYI: Tim Kaine isn't boring," Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii said in a Twitter testimonial, addressing one of the&nbsp;criticisms of Kaine.&nbsp;"Peace Corps guy, impressive spouse, fluent Spanish, plays harmonica, progressive foreign policy."Tim Kaine is a man of great character and qualifications, but he ain't boring," Schatz wrote. "He's one of the more interesting people I know."
