Did Biden say he would consider a Republican running mate?

According to this clip he did. What would be the purpose of saying that?

1. I've heard it reported that it was in jest?

 

No links, just what I heard.

3. He'd consider it but had no one in mind. Great answer.

 

If he said no, he would alienate moderate Republicans who might otherwise not vote or vote Dem to free themselves from the disgrace of Trump. But he also didn't say he had anyone in mind, so no promises.

4. He said he would be open to that if he could think of one who is qualified.

 

He also said he could not think of one.

5. Hasn't this horse already been beaten into steak tartare in previous threads?

 

He was asked the question, and his response included this caveat: "I can't think of one now." He has also said he would prefer a woman or a person of color, which rules out almost all GOPers. The reality is that no Democratic candidate is going to choose a Republican running mate.

11. Hasn't this been posted enough times here? Watch and listen to what he said.....

 

If you KNOW what he said you wouldn't have to ask "Did Biden say he would consider a Republican running mate?"

12. Even worse, Joe actually referred to "really decent Republicans" whom he would consider for his VP.

 

I've never known or heard of a really decent Republican.... ironically, it's comments like this are why they're no big deal, as Joe will not be the nominee precisely because of them.

bring some enthusiasm to the race to get large voter turnout - otherwise, be prepared to slit your throats.

14. Yes, that's true, but if, by some miracle, the 3rd try is the charm...

 

I HIGHLY doubt Joe would run with a progressive, who by definition, does not represent the same return to normalcy and incremental change policies he does.

17. I think the reality of his statement was overlooked.

 

Picking a mirror of his policies from the Republicans is not the same as picking one from Democratics. It elevates the Republican above all Democratics.

16. I assume the purpose was to indicate that no general option is foreclosed.

 

That sentiment makes sense to me. I see no big deal with that.
