The New York Times reports that Hillary Clinton wants a running mate with national security experience, and that she may announce her choice for vice president this Saturday in Miami.

Colorado’s Gov. John Hickenlooper knows how to make beer and do geology, among other talents, and he got to visit Clinton’s house last week, but he doesn’t really meet the “law and order” profile.

The current shortlist, according to NYT, includes retired admiral James Stavridis and Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia.
