Joseph R. Biden pledged for the first time Sunday to tap a woman as his running mate if he wins the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
“I commit that I will in fact pick a woman to be vice president,” Mr. Biden said in a debate in Washington with Sen. Bernard Sanders. “There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”
Asked whether he would pick a woman as well, Mr. Sanders said he could also go that route.
“In all likelihood I will,” Mr. Sanders said. “For me it is not just nominating a woman, it is making sure we have a progressive woman, and there are progressive women out there.”
“So my very strong tendency is to move in that direction,” he said.
In the span of 10 seconds, Joe Biden:
– Mixes up the #coronavirus with the swine flu
– Mistakenly calls the H1N1 virus (swine flu) the "N1H1"
