Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice has spoken out on potentially being Joe Biden’s running mate. During a recent interview, she claimed the U.S. needs new leadership and said she will do what we she can, in whatever capacity, to ensure it happens.
The presumptive Democrat nominee vowed to choose a female of color as his vice president earlier this year.
Former officials stated Rice’s credentials, including her work for the Obama administration, and confidence make her the perfect candidate.
“I’m going to do everything I can to help get Joe Biden elected and to help him succeed as president, whether I’m his running mate or I’m a door knocker,” she said. “I don’t mind, I just want to get Joe Biden elected, see the Democrats control the Senate and retain the House.”

Rice went on to say she is “humbled to be talked about in the context of so many extraordinary women.” However, she emphasized the decision should be about choosing someone who can heal and unify the nation.
