Dream Running Mates Hillary Should Consider

Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for president yet again. But who will she pick? This list of dream running mates for the Clinton campaign features a variety of political stars. Whether former Secretary of State Clinton chooses to run with someone who is female (like Elizabeth Warren) or someone who is Hispanic (like Julian Castro) or someone who is a Republican (like Jon Huntsman), she will be making history.

Vote for the candidate you would like most to see running along Hillary's side (not literally, unless it's Wendy Davis from Texas). There are some surprising options on the list, such as First Lady Michelle Obama, as it would be a nice twist to have two First Ladies become the President and Vice President of the United States. The rising political powerhouses are all great options for former New York Senator Clinton and this page ranks the best and most exciting potential VPs.

    Previously the Mayor of Newark, the United States Senator from New Jersey has become a rising star in American politics. He would bring a lot of energy to the ticket and could become America's first black Vice President and first vegan Vice President.

    Julian Castro

    One of the more exciting and plausible candidates for Hillary's running mate would be the fresh and ethnic Julian Castro. In August of 2014, Obama's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development even traveled for a private dinner with Bill and Hillary at their home in Washington.

    The current Vice President could end up being the Vice President for another four to eight years. Joe Biden might run for President himself but if not, his longtime friend Hillary Clinton might surprise folks by bringing the most experienced candidate on board her ticket.

    Though he might be running for president against Hillary himself, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Known as "The Rock 'n' Roll Governor," the guitar-playing O'Malley has also been compared (by Senator Thomas Miller) to "Bill Clinton in being slow and deliberative and calculating in everything he does."
