Joe Biden Vows to Pick a Woman To Be His Running Mate

Former Vice President Joe Biden vowed to pick a woman as his running mate during Sunday’s Democratic debate.

"If I'm elected president, my Cabinet, my administration will look like the country, and I commit that I will, in fact, appoint a, pick a woman to be vice president," Biden said at his first head-to-head debate with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow,” he added. “I would pick a woman to be my vice president."

“On the campaign trail, Biden has expressed openness to choosing one of his former 2020 rivals, including Klobuchar, Harris and Warren. Harris and Klobuchar have both endorsed Biden for president,” CNN reported. “Biden has also talked about former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan, New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.”

Bernie says he’ll likely pick a woman:

Sanders said that he would “in all likelihood” choose a woman as his running mate as well.

"For me, it's not just nominating a woman," Sanders said. "It is making sure that we have a progressive woman, and there are progressive women out there, so my very strong tendency is to move in that direction."

Biden also vows to choose black woman for SCOTUS:

Biden also said that he would nominate the first black woman for the Supreme Court on Sunday.


Biden said that he believes “everyone should be represented.”

“No one is better than me and I’m no better than everyone else,” he said. “We talked about the Supreme Court — I’m looking forward to making sure there’s a black woman on the Supreme Court to make sure we in fact get everyone represented.”
