Tim Cook Was Named to Hillary Clinton's List of Vice Presidential Candidates

WikiLeaks has leaked yet another email from Hillary Clinton presidential campaign chairman John Podesta that reveals Apple CEO Tim Cook was among a list of candidates for Vice President of the United States, alongside Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and dozens of others.

In August, Cook hosted a fundraising event for the Hillary Victory Fund, a committee that contributes to the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and 38 state parties. Cook, along with Apple environmental chief Lisa Jackson, acted as private citizens, not as representatives of Apple. Cook has demonstrated support for both Democrats and Republicans.

Good. The list should be vast. Just because he was on the list doesn't mean it was likely to happen.

Well, that would have made government thinner.

And it would have required courage.

People should not read too much into this.

This was the everyone-and-the-kitchen-sink list they start with, just to have something to work with as they cut it down.

Yeah no, Cook as a VP of the US? He's got no idea of politics. He's great as CEO of Apple and knows how to handle issues that are also politically charged, but being a VP wouldn't work on him. In fact, Clinton is not gonna work as President, that I can tell you. :P

Upon election, Timmy would promise profound things down the pipeline. After a full term, US citizens would have never found out what they'd be.
