"Clinton campaign chief: 'No question' women will be on VP list."
Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta said the Democratic presidential front-runner would be open to an all-female ticket.

"We'll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it. But there is no question that there will be women on that list," Podesta told the Boston Globe describing the process of picking Clinton's runningmate in an interview published Wednesday.

An all-female presidential ticket would be a historic first in a presidential election full of surprises as Clinton competes to be the first female president of the United States.
That would be very cool! Although my money is still on Julian Castro. And I wouldn't be mad about that!

Naturally, it wouldn't be an article about Democratic women without a mention of Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is apparently the only other woman in politics that anyone in the United States of America can name.
One prominent name that might make the list: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the progressive figure that has so far avoided campaigning for either Clinton or Sen. Bernie Sanders. Warren remains the only female Democratic senator not to have formally endorsed Clinton's presidential bid.
Oooh she is a woman AND she hasn't endorsed her! That must mean...SOMETHING!

I also wouldn't be mad if Warren were on Clinton's ticket, although I don't think Warren wants the job and she'd probably be more effective in the Senate, anyway.

I'm very excited to see who she chooses! Whoever it is!
