Jeremy Peter Green wants $900,000 to surrender the domain name ClintonKaine.com.

In the meantime, you can look at Harry Potter-themed fan fiction about Hillary Clinto and Donald Trump

A lawyer in Washington DC that pre-emptively registered the domain "ClintonKaine.com" five years ago now hoping for a huge payout following Hillary Clinton announcing her official vice president running mate at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

In 2011, Jeremy Peter Green, now 28, had the feeling that in the lead up to the next US elections, Hillary Clinton would be in favour with the Democratic Party, and that she would choose as her VP running mate one of several senators that Obama had been considering when he made his bid for presidency.

To prepare for this eventually, he decided to buy several domain names – ClintonBiden.com, ClintonBooker.com and ClintonKaine.com, paying $8 £6 each.

It has taken almost five years, but now Green's patience has been rewarded.
