One of the nuggets of information to come from the Podesta emails leaked by Wikileaks is a correspondence that lists business and tech leaders as potential running mates for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. If you’re running against a business man, you might as well fight commerce with commerce.
CNN reports that on March 17th, Podesta sent an email filled with political figures and business leaders that were considered by top Clinton campaign staffers. In a odd choice of separating those individuals, Podesta organized the names into “food groups.”
One of those groups included Apple CEO, Tim Cook, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and cofounder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Melinda Gates. The email also contains GM CEO, Mary Barra and Starbucks CEO, Howard Shultz. But in the end, Clinton decided to stick with a politician like herself and picked Tim Kaine killing our dreams of an iPhone in every pocket and an Apple car in every garage.
