At a town hall Friday night, Biden was asked about his pick, and he joked back to the questioner, “You. Are you available?” USA Today reported.
Biden did not provide any specific names, but he said several people are qualified, including “the former assistant attorney general who got fired,” referring to former Deputy Attorney General Sally YatesSally Caroline YatesTop FBI lawyer resigns Senate Republicans issue first subpoena in Biden-Burisma probe READ: Susan Rice’s email discussing Michael Flynn and Russia MORE; “the woman who should have been the governor of Georgia,” referring to Stacey Abrams; and “the two senators from the state of New Hampshire,” referring to Sens.

Abrams, a former Georgia state lawmaker, came close to defeating Republican Brian Kemp for the Georgia governor’s seat in 2018. She said in a speech at the University of Iowa earlier this month that she would be “happy” to run as a vice presidential candidate.
Biden also discussed his time serving as former President Obama’s vice president. He said the most important factor is picking a running mate who aligns with you “philosophically,” USA Today reported.
“We were philosophically in agreement and we strategically agreed on everything. We disagreed on tactics sometimes. And a vice president cannot be in a position even in a cabinet meeting where he or she is taking on the president,” Biden said.
“We’ve had arguments, we’ve shouted at each other in private, but we always completely trusted each other,” he added.
