Hillary Clinton's campaign is vetting retired four-star Adm. James Stavridis, according to The New York Times.
Stavridis led NATO from 2009 to 2013 as the supreme allied commander, and currently dean of Tufts University's Fletcher School. NBC News confirmed he has met with top Clinton vetter attorney James Hamilton.
Stavridis could help Clinton in states with large military operations and bolster her national security credibility.
