Apple CEO Tim Cook Could've Been Hillary Clinton's Vice President

Apple CEO Tim Cook Could've Been Hillary Clinton's Vice President

Bill and Melinda Gates typically avoid endorsing presidential candidates.

Podesta also suggested billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as well as more conventional political choices, such as Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown.

Bill Gates and Tim Cook were both on a list of possible candidates to run as vice president on Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

WikiLeaks has been releasing tens of thousands of emails from members of the Clinton campaign for weeks, revealing details about the democratic presidential candidate's strategy and organization.

Podesta has said that he is in touch with federal investigators because of a hacking situation, although neither he nor FBI officials have confirmed the veracity of the messages posted to WikiLeaks.

Cory Booker, former Attorney General Eric Holder and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick were among the blacks on the list.

KPD helps raise city's LGBTQ "equality score"
Cities that have been rated all five years of the MEI have improved their scores approximately 20 points over that time period. It marks the second year of gains for Toledo, which scored 58 in 2014 and 76 in 2015.


Ok, I can breathe again!

An email apparently from Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, dated March 17, 2016, names Cook as well as other business leaders and lawmakers in "a first cut of people to consider for VP".

Clinton ultimately chose Sen.

In an email sent that month to Podesta with the subject line "Bob Glennon", Democratic consultant Erick Mullen wrote that "HRC has personally told Tim Kaine he's the veep".

Podesta appeared to have organized the potential running mates into what were labeled "rough food groups" after consulting with other key Clinton advisers including campaign manager Robby Mook and Huma Abedin, the vice chairwoman of the campaign.

"A little unseemly", he wrote.
