Clinton Campaign Hints at Potential Woman Running Mate, Fueling Clinton/Warren Speculation

A top official in the Hillary Clinton campaign has said that the shortlist of potential running mates for Clinton, should she secure the nomination, includes a woman, according to the Boston Globe. Naturally, this has fueled speculation about a possible Hillary Cinton/Elizabeth Warren ticket.


Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta told the Globe that Clinton wants, “the best person to make the case to the American people. We’ll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it. But there is no question that there will be women on that list.” 

He hastened to add that the campaign is still very focused on cinching the nomination, which many pundits think she is on track to do after her win in New York.

There are other women besides Warren who might be considered, as the Globe pointed out. They include former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Washington Senator Patty Murray.
