Hillary Clinton's team is vetting retired Adm. James Stavridis for vice presidential running mates, according to The New York Times.
Stavridis is a retired four-star Navy admiral who served as NATO's supreme allied commander in Europe.
That means Clinton and Donald Trump are considering vice presidents with a military background. Multiple outlets confirmed Trump is vetting retired three-star Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as a potential vice president, among other potential picks, including Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
