The retired admiral who is being vetted by the Hillary Clinton campaign
as a potential running mate said this week he's "leaning" toward voting for the former first lady in November.
Admiral James Stavridis said on the Kilmeade and Friends radio show Tuesday he's not all that interested in serving as vice president someday. But when asked who he plans to vote for, he pointed at Clinton.
"At this point, I would say that I would lean toward Secretary Clinton from everything I have seen thus far," said Stavridis, who is a registered independent.
He added, however, "I am very comfortable with making that decision in the privacy of my own home."

Earlier in the interview, Stavridis joked about his small stature.
"On a good day, I stand about 5-foot-5," he said. "When they called me up and said, 'Hey, you're on the shortlist,' I thought, 'You must talking about my height.'"
The admiral also joked about trying to fit his last name onto a bumper sticker.
