"Maybe they're going to put him on the ticket then. I don't know what that means," Devine responded.
 
Asked if Sanders would consider such a scenario, the strategist responded, "I'm sure — of course, anyone would — but I don't think there's any plan for that, certainly no one's talking about anything like that."
 
"He wouldn't ever think about a decision like that unless it was done in the right and proper way," Devine added.
 
The interview was taped hours before Sanders and Clinton clashed in their latest debate Sunday night, with Sanders going after Clinton's paid Wall Street speeches and Clinton knocking Sanders on the auto industry.
