Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack did not make the cut to become Hillary Clinton’s running mate, but he stands a good chance at a top post within her administration, should Clinton be elected in November. Politico reports Vilsack is “very much in the conversation” to become Clinton’s Chief of Staff, if her campaign makes it to the White House. The only question, according to a Politico expert, is whether or not Vilsack would be interested in going back to a staffer role. Vilsack is very much a cheerleader for the Clinton campaign, even after falling short of being her choice for Vice President. Although, Vilsack still stands a chance to fall short in the running as Chief of Staff. Political insiders say most people see Chief of Staff as a choice between Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, and Tom Nides, Clinton’s deputy secretary of state for management.
