Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) says he will pick a woman to be his running mate if he wins his party’s presidential nomination.
During the CNN Democratic Debate on Sunday, Biden vowed to put together a cabinet that will “look like the country.” Additionally, Biden vowed to nominate the first black woman to the Supreme Court.
“I commit that I will, in fact, pick a woman to be vice president,” Biden said, adding, “There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”

CNN’s Dana Bash interjected to ask, “Just to be clear, you just committed here tonight that your running mate, if you get the nomination, will be a woman?”
Biden responded, “Yes.”
“In all likelihood, I will,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said when asked if he would pick a woman to be his vice president.
