List Rules Cenk ranks his contenders to be Donald Trump's running mate

Cenk Uygur and his Young Turks network have made it quite clear that they aren't excited about the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency. That said, on the Ranker Podcast, Cenk made a list of the realistic possibilities he thinks could be Donald Trump's vice presidential pick. As Cenk acknowledges on the podcast, once the Republican National Convention hits, it may not matter. For now, though, his list of serious contenders cuts through the chatter of political pundits and gets right the heart of Trumps running mate decision.

Enough of the banter, let's get rankin'!

He's proven that he will bow his head. He'll yell at little old ladies on the boardwalk and teachers, but in truth he'll just yell at anyone he can bully. But not Trump. He's a yes who man who is establishment enough to please people.
