EXETER, N. H. – Former Vice-President Joe Biden said on Monday he would be willing, in the name of a Republican running mate in his bid for the President.
However, the top-tier Democrat, added, “I can think of one now.”

“The answer is, I would answer,” Biden, before adding that he could not now think, the laughter from the audience moved inside Exeter, the historic town hall.
“No, I’m serious. No. Here is what I mean. Let me conclude. You know, there are some really decent Republicans out there, but here’s the problem now with the well-known and friends: you have to step up,” added Biden, the laughter broke from the audience.
“I’m not a wise man,” he added.
The former Vice President noted that it was presumptuous to discuss running mates before winning the nomination.
“I’m going to change by the press. ‘Biden spoke, the Vice-presidential candidate, and he’s not on the nomination”, that’s completely legitimate,” he said.
But, Biden– who served eight years as the vice president in the Obama administration-fact, running on colleagues, saying: “Whom I would choose for vice-President, and there are a lot of qualified women, there are a lot of qualified African-Americans, are really, really. It is a plus, a plethora of really qualified people.”
To explain what he’d said for a running mate, Biden, “Whom I would choose, I would be happy enough to be their nominee, I would look for someone who is friendly with me, who would have thought… what were my priorities and I knew what I wanted to do. We could not agree on tactics, but strategically we had on the exact same page.”
Earlier Monday, Biden sat in the vicinity of Portsmouth for a meeting with the Seacoast Media Group editorial Board. The meeting came a day after 2020 top-tier rival, Pete Buttigieg called the then-senator from Delaware in 2002, vote to authorize part of the nation’s “worst foreign policy decision” of the 37-year-old South Bend and the war in Iraq, Ind., Mayor Life.
Buttigieg was responding to the question of how his foreign policy experience measured up to some of its competitors, especially Biden, who sat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, as the United States in the war in Iraq.
“This is not an example of why years in Washington, the same as the judgment,” Buttigieg is highlighted always.
Given a chance to respond on Monday, Biden said, “God, love Pete. I respect the fact, to go to his service and his willingness,” as he noted Buttigieg service in the war in Afghanistan as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Naval Reserve.
But, he added, “I’m the guy that’s pointed out, repeatedly these thoughts, we should not be in Afghanistan.”
