WikiLeaks has released a number of hacked emails from the U.S. Democratic campaign, and one interesting email from campaign chair, John Podesta, to Hillary Clinton, lists a number of potential running mates, including Apple CEO, Tim Cook.
Several businessmen where included on Podesta’s list, including Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, and Melinda Gates. Bernie Sanders was also mentioned.
Podesta says in the email: “Cheryl, Robby, Jake, Huma, Jennifer and I also did a first cut of people to consider for VP. I have organized names into rough food groups.”
An openly gay vice presidential running mate would have been truly unprecedented and historic.
Tim Cook is famously bipartisan. He has donated money to both sides of the aisle, and has thrown fundraisers for both Hillary Clinton also Paul Ryan.
While, unfortunately, Tim Cook didn’t get the VP spot, we do love that he was in the running for it.
