Hillary Clinton Tests Possible VP Choice at CAP

Likely 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was a "featured guest" at the Center for American Progress (CAP) on March 23, boosting her liberal credentials before making an expected presidential announcement in the coming weeks.

But more interestingly, one of the panelists at the same CAP event was Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, a leading candidate to be Clinton's vice presidential nominee.

Some have noted that Clinton and Castro were "in sync" and "on the same page" during the event, leading to lots of speculation about a potential Clinton-Castro ticket.

John Podesta, the founder of CAP and Clinton's expected campaign chairman, was reportedly "looking on from the front row."

The liberal think tank is going to be Clinton's go-to policy shop for ideas and talent as she ramps up her campaign.
