Who do you think Hillary will pick for VP [View all]

Here's what I have seen for the short list but welcome to hear other thoughts on who the best choice would be for VP.

Personally I think Hillary needs to go young, exciting and 'outside the box'. She needs to bring in young voters and excite those voters who tend to only vote every 4 years if the will inspires them. I know Tom Kaine has been high on the list but I think he would bore voters. Hillary needs to go with someone like Julian Castro, Cory Booker or Elizabeth Warren - 3 people I think would help get those voters excited!

Your thoughts?
