Clinton meets with Elizabeth Warren at home as decision nears

A Clinton-Warren Meeting Does Not Mean a Clinton-Warren Ticket

Now that we have an entire GOP presidential ticket along with an unfortunate-looking campaign logo, all eyes are on who Hillary Clinton will be choosing as a running mate — especially after another meeting with Elizabeth Warren at Clinton's home on Friday.

A source told CNN Clinton has been holding meetings with her vetting team to finish the process up as soon as possible. And Warren, who stayed for about an hour, was apparently part of that meeting process.

The furor over Clinton possibly picking Warren has been going on for months. Warren has been the most effective Donald Trump attack dog this entire election season and as veep would bring some serious progressive bona fides to a Clinton ticket.

But it seems like the choice that's becoming less likely because Warren could be a risky pick for Clinton. Her empty Senate seat would be filled by a Republican governor, making it harder to flip the Senate to blue. And though the two seem to get along, there's concern the very charismatic Warren could overshadow the presumptive nominee.

Clinton and Warren have been seen on the campaign trail at least once this year, and it's likely to happen a few more times before all is said and done.

No matter what, it's likely Clinton will be choosing a VP sooner rather than later. We're barely a week away from the Democratic National Convention.

Tim Kaine

The junior Democratic Senator from the swing state of Virginia could be a strategic selection for Hillary. Kaine also served as the governor of Virginia from 2006- 2010.

Elizabeth Warren

The current U.S. Senator from Massachusetts is popular among progressive Democrats, and some even tried to draft her to run for president herself in 2016.

Sherrod Brown

Insiders believe that the senior U.S. Senator from Ohio could help Clinton increase her popularity with working-class voters, a group she has yet to win in a big way so far in primary contests.

Cory Booker

The U.S. Senator from New Jersey is both youthful and charismatic and would add racial diversity to a Clinton ticket.

Tom Perez

The current U.S. Secretary of Labor is considered a sleeper pick by many Democrats because he is not well known outside of D.C., but some believe his strength and popularity among union workers and other progressive groups could be an asset to Clinton's ticket.

Bernie Sanders

The Independent from Vermont has become Hillary Clinton's primary rival for the Democratic nomination, garnering a surprising amount of support. Bringing Sanders onto the ticket could help to unite both sets of supporters who have been split in Democratic primaries.

Martin O'Malley

A former 2016 rival of Hillary Clinton, and former Maryland governor, Martin O’Malley could help bring some executive experience, along with a slight youthful boost to the ticket.

Tom Vilsack

The Secretary of Agriculture since 2009, Tom Vilsack also served as the governor of Iowa from 1999 to 2007. Vilsack could bring some governing experience along with swing state influence.  


Evan Bayh 

Evan Bayh could bring a more right leaning brand of politics to the ticket. Bayh previously served as the junior U.S. Senator from Indiana from 1999 to 2011, and also as the 46th Governor of Indiana from 1989 to 1997.  

Joe Biden

While the likelihood of him agreeing to take on the veep job again might be low, Biden's popularity among Democrats would likely boost Clinton's chances.

Bill Clinton

Hillary's husband is technically allowed to serve in the job, and some legal experts even think he'd be able to take office if necessary. Unfortunately for the diehard Clinton supporters, a Clinton-Clinton ticket will probably be a dream that never comes true.
