“Well, I think that is very unlikely, but we will see what happens down — after this whole campaign winds down,” Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, said on ABC’s “This Week."

“I want to see if Hillary Clinton appoints a vice president who is a progressive. I want to see Hillary Clinton become a champion of the needs of working families and putting together an administration not based on Wall Street needs but on the needs of working Americans."

Host George Stephanopoulos then asked if Warren would be a good pick for Clinton.

“Well, I’m a great admirer of Elizabeth Warren. She has been a dynamic senator and has stood up to Wall Street her entire political life,” Sanders said.

Warren endorsed Clinton last week, saying she’s a “fighter with guts.”

Warren, a liberal stalwart and favorite of progressive voters, has been a rumored vice presidential pick for Clinton, though she hasn't explicitly expressed interest in the position. But when asked by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow if she thinks she's capable of doing the job, she responded, "Yes, I do."
