Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell has come out against Elizabeth Warren as a possible choice for Hillary Clinton's running mate, saying she's not qualified.
Rendell, who will chair the Democratic convention in Philadelphia next month, made it quite clear what he thinks of Warren, the liberal senator from Massachusetts, Philly.com is reporting
Warren is being pushed by some factions of the party to join Hillary on the Democratic ticket.
Warren is "not in any way, shape, or form ready to be commander-in-chief," Rendell said on Rich Zeoli's show on 1210 WPHT, according to the site.
Philly.com said he later called back in an attempt to clarify his remarks.
"Elizabeth Warren's problem would be the same problem I'd have," he said. "I mean, let's assume someone said, consider Gov. Rendell for vice president. I have no experience militarily, no experience in foreign affairs, and would be a difficult choice because if anything happened in week one and I became president, I would be lost.
"I think Elizabeth Warren, four years from now, would be a great choice to be on the ticket."
Meanwhile, Clinton said she firmly believes Warren is, in fact, qualified for the position.
"I have the highest regard for Sen. Warren," she said in an interview with Politico
. "I think she is an incredible public servant, eminently qualified for any role. I look forward to working with her on behalf of not only the campaign and her very effective critique of (Donald) Trump, but also on the issues that she and I both care about."
