Biden Commits to His VP Being a Woman but in Strange Moment Bernie Absolutely Refuses To Commit
Former Vice President President Joe Biden committed Sunday to choosing a woman as his running mate if he wins the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
But when asked if he would do the same were he the nominee, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders refused to commit to choosing a woman.
Both candidates’ comments came during Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate, hosted by CNN and Univision, in Washington, D.C.
“I commit that I will in fact pick a woman to be vice president,” Biden said.
When asked to confirm that he was committed to choosing a woman to be his running mate, Biden said unequivocally, “yes.”

Biden’s campaign seized on that moment, tweeting out, “My running mate will be a woman.”
When asked if he would do something similar, Sanders said it was “likely” he’d choose a woman to be his vice president.
But unlike Biden, he did not fully commit to choosing a female running mate.
“In all likelihood I will” choose a woman, Sanders said.
But he noted that it’s about more than gender for him.
.@DanaBashCNN just asked @BernieSanders if he would commit, like @JoeBiden, to picking a woman to be his vice president.

Bernie did not answer and instead pivoted to asking Biden about his views on healthcare.

Another BIG moment.

Biden, for his part, has long signaled that he could choose a woman to be his running mate.

“Whomever I pick, preferably it will be someone who was of color and/or a different gender, but I’m not making that commitment until I know that the person I’m dealing with I can completely and thoroughly trust as authentic and on the same page [as me],” he told The Washington Post in August.
