Washington - Hillary Clinton's campaign circulated an initial list of nearly 40 elected officials, military leaders and corporate CEOs to be considered for vice president last spring.

The list was included among hacked emails from Clinton's campaign chair disclosed by WikiLeaks.

The list emailed from John Podesta to Hillary Clinton last March included several Democratic senators, including Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Tim Kaine of Virginia. Kaine was eventually picked by Clinton.

Obama administration Cabinet members Julian Castro, Tom Perez and Tom Vilsack were also on the list.

Others included Tim Cook of Apple, philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates, Howard Schultz of Starbucks and retired Marine Corps General John Allen.
