That Tufts dean and former admiral reportedly being vetted to be Clinton’s VP won’t say for sure if he will vote for her

Well this would make for an awkward Democratic ticket.

Last week, The New York Times reported that James Stavridis—formerly a Navy admiral and supreme allied commander at NATO, and currently the dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts University—was being vetted by Hillary Clinton’s campaign as a potential running mate.

In a interview Tuesday on Fox News Radio’s Kilmeade and Friends, as first reported by BuzzFeed News, Stavridis said he was leaning toward voting for the former secretary of state.

Yes, leaning.

“At this point, I would say that I would lean toward Secretary Clinton from everything I’ve seen thus far,” said the retired admiral. Pushed on the choice, he later added: “I am very comfortable with making that decision in the privacy of my own home.

That’s got to sting a little bit.
