A WikiLeaks document has revealed that the Hillary Clinton campaign considered former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates and Apple CEO Tim Cook as Hillary Clinton’s running mates.

Clinton ultimately selected Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her vice presidential running mate for the 2016 presidential elections.

Some of the prominent names, apart from Gates and Cook, include Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bloomberg, Bernie Sanders, and Melinda Gates.
