Former Vice President Joe Biden previously announced that he would select a woman as his running mate if he wins the Democratic presidential nomination. Since the announcement, speculations are at an all-time high on who would be the Vice President pick by Biden. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic & the lockdown enforced in most parts of the United States, Biden has been confined to his home in Delaware itself. The selection process didn’t go any further. In the latest development, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Wednesday that she would be happy to accept the role of Biden’s running mate if he offers her the second most powerful position in the country.
In an interview, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked Warren, “if Biden asked you to be his running mate, would accept the role?” to which the senator replied with a clear “Yes.” Elizabeth Warren’s willingness to accept the Vice President role comes at a crucial time as Biden has amplified his search for a running mate after becoming the presumptive nominee of the Democratic party. Although Warren declined to support either Biden or Sanders during the final weeks of the primary, she announced her support to the former Vice President just a day after Vermont Senator quit his campaign and endorsed Biden. Along with Elizabeth Warren, Senator Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota are hopeful that one of them would be the choice of VP by Biden as three of them were his rivals in the Democratic primaries.
Joe Biden also showed his willingness to select a woman of color for the Vice President role. This might increase the list of woman politicians apart from his rivals. Some of the most mentioned and possible picks include - Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth, Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Florida Representative Val Demings, Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and several others. Warren confirmed in July 2019 that she would have accepted an offer for the role of VP from 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after a report surfaced later.
