Joe Biden is picking a woman to be his vice presidential running mate (VIDEO)
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden has finally committed to picking a woman to be vice president, should he win the nomination.
He made the declaration on Sunday night during CNN's debate with Senator Bernie Sanders, who is trailing him in nationwide delegate votes.
"If I'm elected president, my cabinet, my administration, will look like the country. And, I commit that I will pick a woman to be vice president. There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president."
Well, there you have it.
There is a lot of pressure for Joe to pick a woman, and a number of names pop up. But, let's first start with the recommendations that Rep. James Clyburn is whispering into the former vice president's ear, or at least the one's he's telling us about.
Clyburn will forever hold a special place in Biden's heart after helping propel him to a win in South Carolina just before Super Tuesday's crucial voting.
Clyburn said before Sunday's debate that he wants Joe to pick a woman and not only that but he would "prefer" an African-American woman. When he was asked for specific names he replied: Senator Kamala Harris, Rep. Marcia Fudge (OH 11th District), Val Demings (FL 10th District), Stacey Abrams, and Susan Rice, the former National Security Advisor under Obama.
Of course, there are many capable women, including Senator Elizabeth Warren and others, but these are the names Biden is hearing about from Clyburn and Democratic insiders.
