In addition to Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz, other on the list included Bill Gates, Tim Cook, Michael Bloomberg and Melinda Gates. But I guess they would be better than Elizabeth Warren, who was also on the list, and the very curious Tim Kaine, who eventually was picked by Hillary as VP.

Ok, I can breathe again! Congrats on a fabulous night.
I am feeling like it's possible to get back to the longer term again.
Cheryl and I met with Jim Hamilton on Friday to discuss lawyers who can help do the research and vetting that I outlined in the VP vet memo we discussed. We also met with Marc Elias to get his input on firms that have already provided substantial volunteer lawyer assistance and to get prepared to execute non-disclosure agreements with anyone we involve in the process.
We put together the attached notional teams of “report writers” (confidential profiles/public record vet) and “vettors” (deep-dive/oppo-book), and want to run it by you before we execute on the list. Let me know if there are people you would like to see added or removed before we begin the process.
Cheryl, Robby, Jake, Huma, Jennifer and I also did a first cut of people to consider for VP. I have organized names in rough food groups.
