during a press conference here at the white house with the italian prime minister. the president slammed donald trump's claim the election is rigged (president obama) "if you start whining before the game is even over, if whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else, then you don't have what it takes to be in this job." wikileaks has released another batch of emails from clinton campaign chairman john podesta. in one exchange - podesta emailed clinton the initial list of potential vice presidential candidates broken into what h groups were separated by the candidate's race, gender and profession. craig boswell, cbs news, the white house./// ((christianne klein)) >> the intial list of v-p candidates included non-politicians such as admiral william mccraven who commanded the seal team that took out osama bin laden as well as apple c-e-o tim cook who would have been the first openly
