Former Vice President Joe Biden has been leading in the polls by a wide margin ever since he announced he was running for president. While it’s looking more and more likely that he will be the Democratic nominee, everyone is wondering who will be his pick for a running mate. There are rumors that Sen. Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams are being considered. However, Joe Biden did clearly name his first choice: Michelle Obama.

While at a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa, Biden was asked which Obama he would want as a running mate (technically, a former president can run as vice president). Biden answered,  “I sure would like Michelle [Obama] to be the vice president.” The crowd immediately applauded.

He also said he would like to appoint Barack Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court, but explained the former President would have no interest.

While this could be a winning ticket, considering how much Michelle Obama is the most admired woman in the country, our forever First Lady has made it clear she has no interest in being an elected official.
