With the Democratic presidential nomination well within reach, Hillary Clinton has put out her top ten list of possible vice presidential picks.
To the surprise of many, her list of running mates is made up of all women! *
“We want to make the upcoming election truly historic,” said John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign manager. “Electing the first female president, and vice president, would be extraordinary!”
With an eye towards appealing to different segments of females, Hillary’s list is a broad one. It contains African- Americans, Hispanics, transgenders and a fox from the Fox News network.
Here is Hillary’s top ten list of VP picks:
While there has been some speculation Clinton might choose Elizabeth Warren as a running mate as a way to unite mainstream Democrats with its Progressive wing, the idea of another white women on the ticket would not be as exciting, according to Podesta, as choosing any one of the ten picks.
Even though Caitlyn Jenner has made Hillary’s list, the selection is mainly window dressing. Jenner is a staunch Republican who has thrown her support behind Ted Cruz. She has publically stated if Cruz becomes president, she would like to be his “trans” ambassador.
As Hillary already does well among African-American women, the odds are she will opt for a Hispanic running mate, possibly Rosie Perez. But word has it Clinton will give Chaz Bono a good look-over.
