Bill Gates, Tim Cook, Bernie Sanders: Here's the list of 39 people the Clinton campaign considered for VP

A hacked email published by WikiLeaks revealed on Tuesday the “first cut of people” the Hillary Clinton campaign was considering for vice president.

The list of 39 individuals was sent by campaign chairman John Podesta to Clinton on March 17 — two days after Clinton’s successful March 15 Democratic primary romp — and included a mix of accomplished businessmen and politicians.

The individuals were selected by Clinton’s top aides, including Huma Abedin, Robby Mook, and Cheryl Mills, according to the email.

Podesta said in the email that he “organised names in rough food groups.”
