Jill Biden Says She Would 'Love' to See Michelle Obama as Vice President

Share

Jill Biden, the wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, supports her husband’s belief that one former first lady would be right for the role of his running mate.

Jill Biden told CNN she thinks former first lady Michelle Obama would make an excellent vice president.

“I’d love it if Michelle would agree to it, but you know, I think she’s had it with politics,” Jill Biden said. “I don’t know. She’s so good at everything she does. That would be wonderful.”

Her comments come shortly after Joe Biden confirmed he would pick Michelle Obama to be his running mate if she were willing, as IJR previously reported.

“I’d take her in a heartbeat,” Biden said. “She’s brilliant, she knows the way around, she is a really fine woman.”

Joe Biden’s hopes were soon shot down by former Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett after she said there is “no chance” of that happening, as IJR previously reported.

“She’s not demurring here. She’s not being hard to get. She doesn’t want the job,” Jarrett said.

Jill Biden acknowledged there are many “strong” and “qualified” women to choose from. She said she is ultimately leaving that decision up to her husband.

She explained how her husband and former President Barack Obama has always “shared the same values” and how that is something he is going to take into consideration when selecting his running mate.

“I think that’s who he’ll look for, a woman who has the same values that he does,” Jill Biden said. “So I think that’s really important.”

Barack Obama announced his endorsement of Biden a little over a week ago.

A few women have stepped forward to volunteer for the position, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
