All 97 senators “not running for president” were asked by The Hill Newspaper, if asked, would they run as Vice President?
Perhaps not knowing that most people responded “no” or ducked the question altogether, Dianne Feinstein answered, “Of course. I think anybody would.”
Barbara Boxer was one of many who deflected the answer by saying, “I’m not the right choice for the Democrats because they’re going to carry California. So they should really look elsewhere. And I can really help them right here in the Senate as chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee.”
(Funniest reply, by the way, came from the Republican senator from Idaho, Larry Craig, who told the Hill, “I would say ‘No, Hillary.’ ”)
