WASHINGTON - Addressing rumors that she would become a vice president to the eventual Democratic nominee for president, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told reporters that Joe Biden would make a "great running mate" to her once she becomes the Democratic nominee.

Harris had been asked by Daily Mail reporter Emily Goodin what she thought about rumors of her becoming a vice presidential candidate.

"I think that Joe Biden would be a great running mate," Harris said, swiping at Biden. "As vice president he's proven he knows how to do the job."

Joe Biden served as vice president to Barack Obama for two terms. He had dropped out of the presidential race in 2008 after winning less than 1% in the Iowa caucuses and was picked as Obama's vice president to bring experience to the Democratic ticket.

The prospect of Harris as a vice presidential nominee has been the subject of some speculation, given Biden's current lead in fundraising and polling and the diversity that Harris could bring to the ticket as a woman of color.

"That would be a dream ticket for me, a dream ticket!" Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., told Politico earlier this week. "If she is not the nominee, that would be a dream ticket for this country."

The attorney working with Tara Reade, the former Joe Biden Senate staffer who alleged he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, said Friday he is no longer representing her, just two weeks after he first began working with her. Douglas Wigdor said in a statement the decision to drop Reade came on Wednesday of this week, and that it wasn't a reflection on the veracity of her claims. Wigdor said he and others at his firm still believe Reade's allegation against Biden, that he digitally penetrated her and groped her in the basement of a Capitol Hill office building when she worked as a low-level staffer in his Senate office in the Spring of 1993.
