McConnell says Biden would be his "desert island" Democratic president

During the event a reporter asked him, "You're stranded on a desert island and you can only have one companion. Your choices are Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter. Who do you choose?" as reported by NBC News.

The Republican leader first eliminated former President Carter in the hypothetical situation, reportedly saying, "we can rule him out."

McConnell eliminated Obama next.

Though he once said that he would fight to make Obama a one-term president, he clarified to reporters on Tuesday that "the only thing I didn't like about him is he had a tendency to tell me to my face what I thought."

"[A]nd one time I had to say, 'Mr. President, really, that's not what I think,'" he said.
