Warren, Kaine, Castro on Clinton running-mate short list. Who do you think she will pick? [View all]

According to this new article (link below) sources are now saying Hillary has it down to these three. I would put money on Castro. Would like to see Warren but don't want to lose that Senate seat. Could care less about Kaine.
