Both former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, have revealed who they would like to have as vice president, but they highly doubt that she would accept the high-profile job despite being highly qualified for it.
This week, Jill Biden, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, took part in an interview and confessed that she is hoping that beloved former First Lady Michelle Obama would accept the call from millions of Americans to be her husband’s running mate.
She stated: “I’d love it if Michelle would agree to it. But you know, I think she’s had it with politics. I don’t know. She’s so good at everything she does. That would be wonderful.”
Joe is focused on vetting several well-known women, including Kamala Harris, for the post.
Jill, who is all in for a woman VP said: “There’s so many qualified, strong women, and you’ve seen them in the process that we’ve gone through. So I’m going to leave that up to him. I think that Joe has always said that he and Barack shared the same values, and that’s what was so important to him, and that’s why they got along so well. And I think that’s what he’ll look for, a woman who will share the same values as he does.”
Joe, who served as President Barack Obama’s VP for eight years, also sang the same song and said that he would pick Michelle as his vice president “in a heartbeat” and went on to praise the former attorney from Illinois.
The Democrat stated: “She’s brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends. I don’t think she has any desire to live near the White House again.”

The former first lady has repeated over and over that she will not step back into politics by saying: “There’s zero chance,” she said last fall. “There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives. But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me.”
Michelle is said to endorse Joe soon and will also hit the virtual campaign trail for him ahead of the November election.
