Pick any of the current candidates for president of the U.S. and predict who their Vice President will be. Also state why you think they will be chosen.

Hillary Clinton
Martin O'Malley
Bernie Sanders
Mike Huckabee

kind of broad....... If Jeb Bush wins he can choose a lot of people. Susana Martinez, Rob Portman, or Marco Rubio would all work. Rubio would really seal florida, but I think Jeb can do that alone. Martinez--the governor of my state--could flip it, and if the republicans win all of their states (plus Florida and Ohio) you need to win one other state. New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, New Hampshire, and maybe even Pennsylvania would meet that requirement. She would also appeal to hispanic voters and, since she is a woman, help to counter a Hillary candidacy. Portman and Kaisich would help in Ohio--I would prefer Kaisich tbh because he is super popular there. He won 86/88 counties when he ran for governor. Plus, his moderate positions could help a candidate like Rubio or Walker if elected.

Hillary will probably get the candidacy. For VP? Haven't thought about it much. And, unlike most people, I think the chances of her winning are closer to 50-50 than 99-1.
