Sanders: Clinton with a Moderate vp Would Be a ‘Disaster’
Bernie Sanders said on Saturday that it would be a “disaster” if Hillary Clinton chose a moderate vice president.
“If Hillary Clinton were to win and Hillary Clinton were to bring onboard a conservative or moderate-type Democrat, I think politically that would be a disaster,” Sanders said in an interview with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur.
The Hill reports:
Uygur asked if Sanders had any suggestions for VP — specifically citing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose name has been floating as a possible running mate for months.
Sanders said policy and a track record for fighting against Wall Street were the most important factors in a running mate.
“If she has not seen the dissatisfaction with establishment politics that’s out there now, then she is not a good politician at all,” Sanders said.
Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have all also been mentioned as potential running mates for Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner.
Clinton leads Sanders big in the race, but Sanders has pledged to stay in until the Democratic convention this summer.
