Joe Biden Says He Would Consider a Republican for his Runningmate

Exeter, New Hampshire (CNN)Joe Biden told voters in New Hampshire on Monday that he would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate, but added, "I can't think of one right now."

Biden discussed the possibility after a woman told the former vice president that if he is the nominee, he will "have to pull out all the stops." "Our 21-year-old son said the other night, 'I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate," the woman added.

"The answer is I would, but I can't think of one now," Biden replied. "Let me explain that. You know there's some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here's the problem right now ... they've got to step up."

Over the past few months, Biden has offered several clues about who he might consider as his vice presidential pick if he earns the Democratic nomination. He previously said he would prefer to pick someone "of color and/or a different gender" as his potential running mate. Biden has also acknowledged he'd think about adding Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts to his possible ticket.

6. How about a campaign that hires Briana Joy Gray? Is that disqualifying?

How about a candidate who spews a divisionary message against what THEY view as "establishment Democrats"?

4. This is not a good story...

... so I hope in ends. Please, no follow-ups with names of worthy Republicans! I do believe Biden would talk about and consider bringing Republicans into his cabinet, though... and it's best to talk about that if he wins the primary contest.

5. Oh boy, another Biden bashing thread. Everyone is aware Biden isnt going to choose

a republican VP, and this was a loaded question, but the Biden haters love it

Primaries do not necessarily reflect the GE

All of us George McGovern supporters were so sure he would win

9. Too bad there are no longer any Lincolns or Eisenhowers.

But I get his point, and he knows there are no decent GOPers nowadays.
