So who would YOU like to see as Hillary Clinton's running mate? [View all]

Last edited Tue Jun 28, 2016, 05:40 PM - Edit history (8)

My choice is Elizabeth Warren
IMO, choosing her would unite the Democratic Party. and Warren would "destroy" whoever Trump picks as his running mate (in the Vice-Presidential debates)




If none of the posted choices appeals to you, please post a reply naming your choice.
