Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Tuesday mentioned Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as a possible choice for running mate if he's the nominee, according to The Hill.

In an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program, Sanders said it was "a little bit early to be speculating," then mentioned Warren's name.

"Elizabeth Warren, I think, has been a real champion of standing up for working families, taking on Wall Street," the Vermont senator said.

Adding that he would not make a commitment he would pick a woman to run with him because "you have to look at the best candidates you can," but says he's considering it, and believes voters will support the idea. 

"The people of this country understand that it would be a great idea to have a woman as vice president. It's something I would give serious thought to," Sanders said. Noting there are "fantastic women" who would be good candidates for the vice president job.

Warren has embraced the "attack dog" role that a vice president often takes on, by publicly slamming the Republican candidates, according to The Washington Post.

Hillary Clinton is also considering women as vice president, according to her campaign manager, reports the Boston Globe.

The Hill notes Warren has avoided endorsing Sanders or Clinton in the Democratic presidential race, but the Massachusetts senator is very popular with the base and has been courted by both candidates.
