The basics of it are that Kaine dropped his chairman spot to let Debbie Wassermann Schultz rig the primaries, as a result Kaine was granted VP. Thoughts?

No, sketchy stuff usually is not so convoluted. It's usually short term with fewer players and done with as little upper level interference as possible.
Kaine was chosen because he is a corporate democrat like Hillary. They didn't make a back room deal.

The more likely reason why Kaine was selected as Hillary's running mate, I believe is MUCH simpler than that.

Kaine located the lost city of El Dorado -- the legendary city of gold. Kaine offered the GPS coordinates to Clinton, if she named him her running mate. Clinton is unable to resist the precious.

Kaine is from swing-state VA, was heavily considered as a VP candidate when Obama ran in '08, and doesn't have enough personality to outshine Hillary (which they both lack).

IMO he was a no-brainer for a party that wants to keep the current status quo.

Hillary didn't need the Democratic chair's endorsement to get the nomination. She had that as soon as Barack Obama was elected to his second term. However, there were reasons DWS was chosen for the lead... mainly because she knew where a lot of skeletons were buried on Obama from her work on the Clinton Campaign. She also knew where Clinton's skeletons were buried. Putting her in charge was more of an insurance policy than anything else.

The theory about Tim Kaine is interesting, but it falls apart in light of the political reality post-Obama's reelection.

Kaine is a "yes" man who is easily bribed with money and gifts so he's a perfect possible President of the U.S.
