Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton is currently the Democratic presidential frontrunner, so many are already speculating about who she will name as her running mate.
Bill Daley, commerce secretary under President Bill Clinton and ex-chief of staff to President Barack Obama, sat down with CNBC Monday to offer Hillary some advice about picking a Vice President.
“I think Tim Kaine is a good prospect,” Daley told “Squawk Box,” referring to the Virginia U.S. senator and former governor who was also once the chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
Daley went on to say that Kaine is “somewhat moderate” but a “progressive on things” that will matter in the general election.
“I know Al Franken’s been mentioned” as a possible running mate option, Daley continued. Franken is a U.S. senator from Minnesota who was once a comedian who performed on and wrote for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
“The truth is he’s been a very serious senator since he’s been there, in spite of the fact that when he got elected, people said, ‘This is just a comedian,'” added Daley, currently head of U.S. operations at Swiss hedge fund Argentiere Capital.
