Hillary Clinton is working hard to dodge an FBI criminal investigation, but is going to be the Democrat presidential candidate for President in 2016.
Now, she just made a huge announcement about who would be leading her VP running mate list: Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban. Cuban, another reality show star, is a frequent critic of Trump.
Hillary admitted she’s very open to the idea of an unorthodox pick as a running mate:
Hillary Clinton responded Sunday to Mark Cuban’s suggestion that he’d be open to serving as her running mate, and she seemed more than open to the idea.
“I think we should look widely and broadly,” she told Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “It’s not just people in elective office. It is successful businesspeople. I am very interested in that. And I appreciate his openness to it.”[…]
“I think that is the best way to find somebody who can really capture what’s needed in the country, and businesspeople have, especially successful businesspeople who are really successful as opposed to pretend successful, I think have a lot to offer,” Clinton said.
On the same Sunday program, Cuban indicated his willingness to serve as Clinton’s vice president if asked.
Todd mentioned that Cuban has previously joked about being willing to serve on Clinton’s ticket as long as he could “throw bombs” at Trump. So Todd asked if he’d consider should the Democratic frontrunner make the proposition.
“Absolutely,” he said. “But the key would be that she’d have to go more to center.”
“I like the fact that [Secretary] Clinton has thought-out proposals,” he continued. “That’s a good thing because at least we get to see exactly where she stands.”
