    James Stavridis, Retired Admiral, Is Being Vetted as Hillary Clinton’s Running Mate

    "In 2012, Mr. Stavridis was investigated for having improperly used a military aircraft to fly with his wife to an exclusive party in Burgundy, France with winemakers.

    He was later cleared of misconduct after a long Pentagon investigation into his travel and expenses, including trips he took with his wife, daughter and mother. The Pentagon inspector general’s report ultimately concluded that he had failed to exercise sufficient oversight over staff members, and had made several bookkeeping mistakes."

    Reportedly he believes in "smart power" and "building bridges, not walls." It sounds like his philosophy is generally consistent with HRC's.
