Interaction: Maddow & Warren by Mary E. Latela August 6, 2016
MADDOW: And I know you’re not seeking the job and I know you love being a senator. But if you were asked to be Secretary Clinton’s running mate, do you believe you could do it? By that I mean, the most important job of being a vice president is to be ready to be president if God forbid something happened to the commander-in-chief.
I know you don’t want the job. But do you know you would be capable of stepping into that job and doing that job if you were ever called to do it? Because — and I ask you because Ed Rendell, former DNC chairman, former Pennsylvania governor, said recently that you were no — not in any way, shape or form ready to be commander-in-chief. I want to know if you think you could be.
WARREN: Yes, I do.
MADDOW: Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts making this endorsement, for the first time tonight, Hillary Clinton for president. Thank you for making that announcement on this show. And thanks for being willing to talk to me about it.
WARREN: You bet.
