Joe Biden gave another one of his rambling, occasionally stumbling interviews to Pittsburgh’s KDKA television recently and managed to highlight exactly how little he thinks of the entire election process. Either that, or he’s really losing the thread again. In any event, host Jon Delano brought up the subject of the veepstakes and, for some reason, mentioned former First Lady Michelle Obama’s name. It didn’t sound as if it was any sort of a trap, but Biden managed to take the bait anyway. He gushed about Barack Obama’s better half, describing how she would be a great choice for Vice President if she could be convinced to accept the position. Seriously, Joe? (CBS Pittsburgh)
Joe Biden says he would take Michelle Obama to be his running mate for the 2020 presidential election.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee told KDKA’s Jon Delano that the former first lady would be a strong addition as VP if he thought she would accept the nomination.
“I’d take her in a heartbeat,” Biden said on Monday. “She’s brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends.”
“I don’t think she has any desire to live near the White House again,” Biden added.
It’s not hard to see why Biden would be eager to flatter Michelle Obama. She remains one of the most popular women in the world among Democratic voters and her last name certainly doesn’t hurt. He probably also knows there’s no danger in bringing this up because, by all reports, you couldn’t drag Michelle Obama back near the White House again with a tractor and a train.
