Appearing Friday on CNN’s New Day, Jill Biden, former second lady and wife of presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, said that former first lady Michelle Obama would make a “wonderful” vice president.
“I’d love it if Michelle [Obama] would agree to it. I think she's had it with politics. She's so good at everything she does. That would be wonderful,” @DrBiden says when asked if the former first lady would consider being Joe Biden’s running mate. https://t.co/tAOTzVqh4T pic.twitter.com/DShgiFmj9D

A transcript is as follows:
ALISYN CAMEROTA: I know that your husband is in the process of considering a running mate. Who do you want it to be?
JILL BIDEN: Oh my goodness. There’s so many qualified, strong women and you’ve seen them in the process that we’ve gone through. I’m going to leave that up to him. I think that Joe has always said that he and Barack [Obama] shared the same values and that is what was so important to him and that’s why they got along so well and I think that’s who he will look for — a woman who has the same values that he does. I think that’s really important.
CAMEROTA: I have a suggestion. This is just off the top of my head, maybe former first lady Michelle Obama?
BIDEN: I’d love it if Michelle [Obama] would agree to it. I think she’s had it with politics. She’s so good at everything she does. That would be wonderful.
