The burn didn’t go unnoticed online.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), one of many Democrats seeking their party’s nomination for president in 2020, threw some shade at fellow hopeful Joe Biden when asked about how she responded to chatter that she would make a good vice presidential candidate.
Since Biden entered the race, he has sat near the top of most 2020 polls among Democratic primary voters. However, it is still early in the process—with the first Democratic debates scheduled to take place next month.
Harris was asked by a reporter about talk of her being a good candidate to be vice president if she weren’t to capture the party’s nomination.
I asked Kamala Harris if she’s sick of all the talk of how she’s the perfect VP. She responded: I think that Joe Biden would be a great running mate. That as vice president he's proven he knows how to do the job. pic.twitter.com/9wHwOlKoxw— Emily Goodin (@Emilylgoodin) May 15, 2019

The not-so-subtle shade was noticed and respected.

It’s still extremely early to predict who will ultimately get the nod to run against President Donald Trump, but Harris clearly isn’t running to be someone’s vice presidential candidate.
