Joe Biden Says He’d Pick Michelle Obama As Running Mate ‘In A Heartbeat’

Joe Biden said Monday he’d pick former first lady Michelle Obama as his running mate “in a heartbeat” if she were willing.

“I’d take her in a heartbeat,” Biden told KDKA in an online interview Monday. (Watch portions above.) “She’s brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman.”

However, Biden added: “I don’t think she has any desire to live near the White House again.” 

As for more realistic choices, Biden said he’s committed to choosing a woman but is not focused on a woman of color.

“There are a number of qualified women out there,” he said.

The Hill noted that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) said she would say yes and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said she’d be “honored” if asked to join the ticket.
