Tapper: Podesta Email Shows Clinton Got VP Picks According to ‘Binders Full of Women, Binders of Full of Latinos’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” anchor Jake Tapper stated that emails from Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta released by WikiLeaks, showing Podesta dividing VP picks into “food groups” is their “own little binders. Binders full of Latinos, binders full of military, etc.”

Tapper said the emails show Podesta “parceling out vice presidential picks into ‘food groups.’ In an email to the candidate on March 17th of this year, Podesta breaks up the choices into easily digestible groups with common themes. Latinos, women in elected office, white men, black men, former military men, business executives, and then, in a category all by himself, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who at that point was still locked in a very intense, close primary battle with Clinton.”

He added, “[Y]ou might remember, in 2012 Democrats, and some in the media even, vilifying Governor Romney, when talking about trying to have qualified women in his government in Massachusetts, said he requested, ‘binders full of women’ to fill these cabinet positions. But here we have an email showing Clinton getting VP choices according to, you know, their own little binders. Binders full of women, binders full of Latinos, binders full of military, etc.”
