(New York Post) – Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden this week reaffirmed his desire to have former first lady Michelle Obama be his running mate.

“I sure would like Michelle [Obama] to be the vice president,” Biden said Tuesday at a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa.

The comment came after the former vice president was asked if he would consider nominating former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court.

“Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden responded.

The questioner followed up with the question, “Which Obama?”

Biden responded: “They’re both incredibly qualified people and they’re such decent, honorable people.”

The pairing would be a first in American politics; there has never been a presidential ticket that included a former first lady in the VP slot.

This isn’t the first time Biden had mentioned the idea of the former first lady being his running mate or the former president being on the Supreme Court.

In September, Biden joked during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that he had “only [asked Michelle] to be my vice president,” when asked if he had asked her for advice.

The former vice president said in December at another Iowa campaign stop that he’d nominate President Obama to the nation’s highest bench “if he’d take it.”

  1. Joe Biden:Before you could nominate a running mate.You would first have to win the Democratic Primaries and the nomination.You are changes of getting the nomination is very slim to none.You are trying your spin crap.By injecting Michelle Obama into the conversation.I as a Democratic voter for many years now.I would like to know.How it is that members of your family to include your son.How were they able to make so many millions of dollars from that Ukraine company.For as an example your “son” made US$85,000 per month as a board member of that company.How did he get that job.How did they know about him.Did you intervene on his behalf,as Vice President of the United States of America.You were also the Vice President when taxpayers money were given to Solyndra.US$ 535 million to be exact.In a blink of an eye they filed for bankruptcy.What amazes me,the media let you and Obama slide with a pat on your backs.No one from that company was investigated and or charged with any crimes.To this day I wondered why.And you want me a Democrat to vote for you.To which I say,hell no.
