Most prognostication has it that Clinton needs to make herself more appealing by value-adding some measure of regional balance, shoring up a swing state or appeasing a needed demographic with a symbolic selection. Is David Petraeus the answer?
You say the name General David H. Petraeus to people and to be really honest- depending on what decade they were born in
