Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is keeping coy about whether she is willing to be Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's running mate in the presidential election, Mic reports.
Asked whether she would accept an offer to be Clinton's vice president, Warren demurred, saying "I love my job. I'm here in the United States Senate doing exactly what the people of Massachusetts sent me here to do… And that's what really matters to me."
When pressed if she would rule out the possibility, Warren responded that "We've got to get all of our nominations settled on the Democratic side. For me, I'm going to keep doing my job every single day and I'm not thinking about another job."
Warren, who is considered on the far left of the party, added that she has not spoken to Clinton recently.
There has been speculation that a Clinton-Warren ticket would help boost the chances of the Democrats, The Hill reports,
because it would not only soften the disappointment the progressive branch of the party will experience if Bernie Sanders fails to get the nomination, but the two-women team would energize the leftist base and help accentuate what many consider to be presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's misogyny.
Warren is also known for not being afraid to back down from a fight and many believe her feistiness would be helpful in what is expected to be a rough and tumble presidential campaign, as shown by a series of Twitter battles she has had with Trump.
