If Hillary Clinton scores the Democratic nomination for president, she'd be shattering a major glass ceiling. But her campaign indicated that she could make history again by choosing a woman as her running mate.
"We’ll start with a broad list [of potential vice presidential candidates] and then begin to narrow it," Clinton 2016 chairman John Podesta told The Boston Globe. "But there is no question that there will be women on that list."
Clinton had previously indicated that they wouldn't rule out a female veep, but this is the campaign's strongest stance on the matter so far.
The Globe floated Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who had been rumored to be considering a presidential bid herself. Other women whose names have been floated are Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)
Conventional wisdom suggests that she could also pick someone who is vastly different from her -- young, male, and a person of color. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) or Julian Castro, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, would fit the bill in that case.
