House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California endorsed Hillary Clinton for president and hinted at a possible pick for vice president.
Ahead of her state’s primary on Tuesday, Pelosi said she was “proud to endorse” Clinton as she spoke on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“Well, I’m a voter in California, and I have voted for Hillary Clinton for president of the United States and am proud to endorse her for that position,” Pelosi said.
“But I hasten to say that it’s not over till it’s over. Californians haven’t voted, nor have others in five states. So while the nomination may be there in the numbers in terms of super delegates, I didn’t endorse yet because I am a super delegate and I think that the matter should be determined by the voters in the state.”
Pelosi thought the idea of a female vice president would be “fabulous” but stopped short of directly advocating Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as Clinton’s running mate.
“We’ve had two men over and over again for hundreds of years,” Pelosi told host George Stephanopoulos. “I think that two women, whoever they may be, that would be fabulous as well, but Hillary Clinton will choose the person that she feels most comfortable with.”
The Massachusetts senator since 2013, Warren could be the enticement Sanders’ supporters need to join the now presumptive Democratic candidate, Clinton. A former Harvard law professor and progressive icon, Warren despises corporate America and has gained a reputation for her stance that U.S. economic system favors the wealthy class.
While an all-female ticket would seem powerful to Democrats, the idea of Warren as V.P. may strike fear in the hearts of those who see her as an opponent of conservative policies, pushing a progressive agenda for more government control of Americans.
