“I’m humbled and honored to be among the extremely accomplished women who are reportedly being considered in that regard”
Susan Rice, who served as National Security Adviser for the Obama administration is apparently on the list of potential running mates for Joe Biden. When asked if she would take the job, she said yes.
Brie Stimson reports at FOX News:
Susan Rice ‘would say yes’ if asked to be Biden’s running mate
Former national security advisor Susan Rice Thursday said she “certainly would say yes” if former Vice President Joe Biden asked her to be his running mate in the presidential election.
“I’m humbled and honored to be among the extremely accomplished women who are reportedly being considered in that regard,” Rice told PBS.
Biden is listed on a memo declassified this week by acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell of former Obama administration officials who may have seen documents related to the “unmasking” of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
While Rice isn’t on the list, she has admitted to making unmasking requests during her time as national security adviser.

Rice would check some of the right boxes for Biden. She is a woman of color and has foreign policy experience.
Like Biden however, she is part of the unmasking scandal currently unfolding.
J. Edward Moreno writes at The Hill:
A CBS poll this month showed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) was Democratic voters’ top choice for Biden’s vice presidential pick, with Rice tied for sixth place with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).
Rice is also on the list of former Obama administration officials released by acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell who Grenell says asked for documents that led to the “unmasking” of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, revealing his identity in intelligence reports between the 2016 election and President Trump’s inauguration.
Of course, the biggest strike against Rice is the central role she played in blaming the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi on a YouTube video.
