As it seems Hillary’s nomination as the Democrat candidate for president is a fait accompli the next big question is, who’s going to be her running mate?Col. West has been predicting Julián Castro on these pages for quite some time. But since we’re talking about gender so much recently, what about a woman?
CNN says, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta said the Democratic presidential front-runner would be open to an all-female ticket.“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,” Podesta told the Boston Globe describing the process of picking Clinton’s running mate in an interview published Wednesday.
An all-female presidential ticket would be a historic first in a presidential election full of surprises as Clinton competes to be the first female president of the United States.
One prominent name that might make the list: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the progressive figure that has so far avoided campaigning for either Clinton or Sen. Bernie Sanders. Warren remains the only female Democratic senator not to have formally endorsed Clinton’s presidential bid.Oh my goodness. That would be scary (at least to me), but not nearly as scary as if it were Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Can you just imagine?
