Hillary Building Ties With Julian Castro

The Washington Post reports Hillary and Bill Clinton have been cozying up with former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro, giving rise to speculation she might tab him as her running mate.

Castro has been a nationally rising star since the 2012 Democratic Convention. (I wrote at the time, "Michelle Obama was good, but hands down, the star of the night was Julian Castro.) In May, Obama nominated him as Secretary of HUD. He will be sworn in on Monday. His twin brother Joaquin is a Texas congressman.

    There has been talk of this in Texas for a couple (5.00 / 2) (#4)

    of years.  I doubt a Clinton/Castro ticket would win Texas but it would certainly get out people who don't normally vote which could be really beneficial to down-ticket races.  

    This seems like (none / 0) (#6)

    a winning combination.  At this point, I do not know much about him other than the public record available.  I trust, however, that he will be fully vetted on all levels.   A past problem of some sort, is what the Republicans always look for, or conjure up,  having no governmental or other programs themselves to offer.   The Republican ideology is, essentially, vote for me and I promise to do nothing.  Works with the base, but not a good bumper sticker overall.

    How wonderful, after having a president named Hussein, to have a VP named Castro.

    of being able to get back to the Whitehouse, they should try to recruit someone with names like Putin, Brezhnev, Bismark, etc. Last names like Bush and Reagan have become stale. Doesn't sell anymore!

    make up 30% of the U.S. population. And, Hispanics have been increasing at the rate of one million/yr. over the past several years.

    Brilliant move if our speculation turns out true.
