Hillary Clinton on Sunday weighed in on Joe Biden’s vice presidential search, saying in an interview on MSNBC that the former vice president has “great choices.”
“This is such a critical election and I think he’s got great choices,” Clinton said of those believed to be in Biden’s final round of consideration, which includes Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former national security adviser Susan Rice and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, among others. “We’re up against a wannabe authoritarian who has already hurt our country, our institutions, our rule of law … we just have to defeat Donald Trump.”
The 2016 Democratic nominee explained how she chose her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., by looking for “a person who could literally be president tomorrow” as well as someone “I could work with” and who could “help me win.”
Clinton also spoke about the role sexism plays in the campaign as Biden prepares to put a woman on the ticket.
