“I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team”
Elizabeth Warren was interviewed on Boston Public Radio this week and would not confirm whether or not she backed Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s VP choice in 2024.
She tried to make it look like she was trying to stay out of their business, but that’s not what was going on here. As usual, Warren is always looking out for number one – herself.

Warren stops short of backing Harris for VP in 2024
Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to see President Joe Biden seek reelection next year, but wouldn’t say whether Vice President Kamala Harris should again join him on the Democratic ticket.
Asked on Boston Public Radio Friday if Biden, 80, should run for a second term in 2024, Warren was quick with her answer.
“Yes. He should run again,” Warren said. “And he is running again.”
Her response to a follow-up question of whether Harris should be his running mate was less concrete.
“I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team,” she said. “I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her back when she was an attorney general and I was still teaching and we worked on the housing crisis together, so we go way back. But they need — they have to be a team, and my sense is they are — I don’t mean that by suggesting I think there are any problems. I think they are.”
Warren, Biden and Harris all ran for president in the 2020 Democratic primary.
Warren dropped out after coming up short in the March 2020 Super Tuesday primaries, including a third-place finish in Massachusetts behind frontrunner Biden and Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders. Harris, who has served as both California’s attorney general and a U.S. senator from that state, ended her campaign in December 2019, and she and Warren both ultimately endorsed Biden.

What can we take from this exchange? It shows that even Democrats like Warren know that Kamala Harris is a disaster. It also suggests that Elizabeth Warren’s aspirations for higher office are far from over.
