(CNN)As Joe Biden approaches his selection of a Democratic running mate, insiders have been telling reporters that his team is asking three questions of the remaining female candidates:
- Will this nominee be good at the job?
- Will she get along well with Biden?
- Will she be an asset or a liability in the campaign?
These are all important questions that have been asked in past campaigns. For Biden especially, it is important that his running mate do no harm to the ticket. He has the momentum now and wants to maintain it into the fall.
