I'm going with Tom Perez - it would be a very unexpected choice, and it would be a shrewd gesture to pick a Labor Secretary when jobs are still a big issue, especially among blue collar males who are likely Trump supporters. He's also Hispanic, a civil rights lawyer, a consumer advocate and a liberal. He checks off a lot of boxes Ds like to see checked off.

Plus, as an unknown and surprise choice, it will dominate the news. He also gets to introduce himself to the public - few know who he is, and the Rs don't have a bunch of canned responses ready for him.
