Report: Joe Biden had chosen Elizabeth Warren as running mate

Vice President Joe Biden, if he'd entered the two thousand sixteen White House race, would've chosen progressive stalwart Elizabeth Warren as his running mate, according to a new report by Politico.

Biden discussed the opportunity with Warren, a MA senator, during a meeting at his Washington, D. C. residence in August, when Biden was still pondering the launch of a presidential bid. Biden keep his two thousand sixteen ambitions to rest, however, in October, citing concerns for his family after the death of his son Beau earlier in the year.

Politico reports that Biden had told Warren during the conversation that he wanted her to be his vice presidential pick, but he didn't ask her outright to commit to the position or endorse him.

Warren, according to Politico, appeared "non-committal" but "not displeased" with the meeting.

Biden still believes that Warren, a harsh critic of huge banks and one of the Senate'south strongest advocates for Wall Str reform, is the ideal candidate for the vice presidential slot.

Biden recently "told associates that Warren would be an equally bright choose for Hillary Clinton," reports Politico.

A Clinton-Warren ticket could potentially patch the cracks in the Democratic party brought about by a cruel primary cycle. Warren'south anti-Wall Str bona fides could bring more credibility to Clinton, who's struggled with support from the party'south more leftist, activist base because of her own ties to the financial sector.

As for the MA senator'south thoughts on the No. two slot, Warren hasn't ruled out the opportunity of running alongside Clinton, should she be asked.

"We've got to obtain all of our nominations settled on the Democratic side," Warren told Mic earlier this week. "For me, I'm going to hold doing my work every single day and I'm not thinking about another job."
