Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has declined to state whether she believes Kamala Harris is the best running mate for President Joe Biden before revealing the Vice President doesn’t “do that much”.
During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday, local time, Ms Pelosi praised Harris as “politically astute”.
“Why would she be vice president if she were not?” she said.
However, when pressed about whether Harris was the best choice, Ms Pelosi suggested the vice president’s role is more of an “intellectual resource”.
“She’s the Vice President of the United States. And when people say to me, ‘well, why isn’t she doing this or that?’ I say, ‘because she’s the vice president. That’s the job description. You don’t do that much.”
