5 people Hillary might name as her vice president.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/04/22/5-people-hillary-clinton-might-pick-as-her-vice-president/?tid=sm_tw

I would bet it's either Tim Kaine or Sherrod Brown.

1. Speculation is fine. Others have reported Sherrod Brown doesn't want it. Don't blame him.

 

Tim Kaine is needs to stay in Virginia and help other Dems elected there.

2. I just don't see Clinton picking another white man. And a lot of these choices are older Democrats.

 

Clinton's VP needs to be from the next generation of Democrats, someone who has begun building themselves a solid record and is ready to go to the next level.

At least, that's my opinion.

3. Thank You. I don't think it's "agist" to want someone from my generation or younger...

 

I am in my early 50's.

has said publicly, MANY times, that he doesn't want to be VP.

5. I'd love to see Julian Castro

 

That would be a dynamic ticket. First female President, first Latino Vice President. He's got youth and is very popular. Checks off many boxes Hillary needs for her VP.

6. We need to keep Sherrod in the Senate

He is doing a fantastic job there and it would be a waste of his resources to have him VP.

7. I hope it's not Tim Kaine

Unless he's evolved, his statements regarding reproductive rights are troubling.

8. Martin O'Malley? (Definitely NOT Jim Webb, though.)

Is there any bad juju between Hillary and Martin?

I know that Jim Webb has pretty much sealed his fate with his acceptance and any future role within the Democratic Party. Based on the story below, it appears that voters were right about him.

Did anyone see this? http://www.politico.com/story/2016/03/jim-webb-no-hillary-clinton-220255

Jim Webb: I won't vote for Clinton, but I may for Trump

Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb won’t be voting for Hillary Clinton, but he hasn’t ruled out casting his ballot for Donald Trump.

Webb, who briefly flirted with an independent bid before deciding against it, said on Friday morning that the Democratic front-runner wasn't inspirational.

"I would not vote for Hillary Clinton,” Webb said on MSBNC's "Morning Joe."

When asked whether he'd vote for Trump, Webb said he wasn't closed to the idea. “I'm not sure yet. I don't know who I'm going to vote for,” he said.

10. Jim Webb has always been a RW'er in Democrat's clothing.

9. Sherrod Brown would be my pick.

For all the reason cited in the article:

Clinton's opposite. Gruff to her polished. Populist to her, um, not populist. Blue collar to her white collar. And he's from Ohio — one of the swingiest states in the country. Brown could also be — and would likely relish — the traditional vice presidential role as an attack dog against the Republican ticket.

Plus he's 63, 8 years as VP would be a nice cap on his career.

Also he's been in the senate 9 years and the congress for 14 years. She needs a good operative to work those 2 houses to get things done and he knows his way around.

As has been stated here in up posts, he has said he doesn't want it, but sometimes when you're asked....."I serve at the pleasure of the President".

Tim Kaine: Again, I think HRC will need the congressional experience to help her, especially if we don't increase our numbers this election. The one down side they had for him is; he's a white male with senator in front of his name. Well same thing for Sherrod Brown.

Amy Klobuchar: As much as I hate to say it, I just don't think we're ready for a female president AND Vice president. Maybe someday, but we've barely got this far with a female running for president. I wish it wasn't so.

Julian Castro: Would love to be able to say Sec Castro is my 1st pick, but he is so inexperienced. Mayor of San Antonio, Tx for 5 years before being appointed Sec of Housing and Urban Development in 2014. To me just not enough experience.

Tom Perez: Don't know enough about him, other than little or no legislative experience.
