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."

It accused Biden of "slandering the supreme leadership" of North Korea -- a term usually referring to leader Kim -- and said the former senator had become "reckless and senseless, seized by ambition for power".
