Former Vice President Joe Biden committed on Sunday during the Democratic Debate that he would choose a woman as his running mate if he wins the Democratic presidential nomination.

“If I’m elected president, my cabinet, my administration, will look like the country, and I commit that I will, in fact, appoint and pick a woman as vice president. There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow,” Biden said. “I would pick a woman as my vice president.”

The former Vice President also said he would appoint the first African American woman to the Supreme Court.

“I’m committed that if I am elected president and have an opportunity to appoint someone to the courts, I will appoint the first black woman to the court. It’s required that they have representation now; it’s long overdue,” Biden added.

When pressed by CNN moderator Dana Bash if he would also tap a woman as his running mate, Biden’s rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wouldn’t go quite as far in guaranteeing he’d choose a woman, saying “in all likelihood” he would pick a woman.

“In all likelihood, I would,” Sanders said, “For me, it’s not just nominating a woman. It is making sure that we have a progressive woman and there are progressive women out there. So my very strong tendency is to move in that direction.”
