Bernie Sanders: I Would Consider Being Hillary’s Vice President – VIDEO

Via The Hill:

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Friday left the door open to being Hillary Clinton’s running mate if she were to offer him the position after the party’s convention this summer.

“Right now, we are focused on the next five weeks of winning the Democratic nomination. If that does not happen, we are going to fight as hard as we can on the floor of the Democratic convention to make sure that we have a progressive platform that the American people will support,” Sanders said during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer broadcast on “The Situation Room.”

“Then, after that, certainly Secretary Clinton and I can sit down and talk and see where we go from there.”

Asked if Sanders would drop out of the race if he were offered the VP slot now, the independent Vermont senator responded, “I think that that is a hypothetical that will not happen.”

Clinton has all but clinched the Democratic nomination but she has shied away from directly calling for her opponent to drop out of the race.

Sanders has insisted that he’ll fight until the party’s convention in July, hoping to play a role in crafting a more progressive party platform.
