Biden Commits to Picking a Woman to Be His Running Mate

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) says he will pick a woman to be his running mate if he wins his party’s presidential nomination.

During the CNN Democratic Debate on Sunday, Biden vowed to put together a cabinet that will “look like the country.” Additionally, Biden vowed to nominate the first black woman to the Supreme Court.

“I commit that I will, in fact, pick a woman to be vice president,” Biden said, adding, “There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”

Watch the video below:

CNN’s Dana Bash interjected to ask, “Just to be clear, you just committed here tonight that your running mate, if you get the nomination, will be a woman?”

Biden responded, “Yes.”

“In all likelihood, I will,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said when asked if he would pick a woman to be his vice president.

Throughout the campaign, Biden has offered up several individuals that he would consider for vice president, including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as IJR has previously reported.

  1. I’m sure women all over will celebrate a woman finally being picked for VP to help make an old guy seem more electable as president.

    Sigh… whatever.

  2. I would have thought his campaign managers would have muzzled him on this topic at least.

    1. Joe’s gonna Joe. Notice his pushing off the adviser while he insulted the MI autoworker and before he threatened physical violence. That’s a “man of the people”. Not.

  3. Pandering for votes.
    Joe’s big concern should be picking a running mate who’s actually qualified, experienced and has actual accomplishments. 1especially if that person will be his successor.
    Skin color and gender are SO non-qualifiers, discriminatory, and smack of “tokenism”. If he’s looking at those then will he consider Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Yang? Nope.

    1. Which was why Bernie Sanders said that he would look for someone who would support his necessary progressive policies. That was the right call.
