Joe Biden Just Pledged to Pick a Woman as His Vice President – By Kara Voght (Mother Jones) / March 15 2020
Joe Biden made a big promise during the CNN debate stage on Sunday night: If he became the Democratic party nominee, he would choose a woman to be his vice president.
The promise came out of a question about what Biden’s and Bernie Sanders’ would-be cabinets would do to ensure the best advice on issues that affect women’s physical and financial health. Sanders began by noting that his cabinet would look “like America,” in that half of his cabinet would be women appointees.
Biden took it a step further. “I would pick a woman to be my vice president,” he volunteered.
CNN’s Dana Bash asked him to clarify. “Just to be clear, you just committed tonight that your running mate, if you get the nomination, will be a woman?” she asked.
