"I will say that I do not believe that Susan Rice, who was President Obama’s national security adviser and is rumored to be on this list, I do not think she is going to be the choice," Perino, who served as White House press secretary in President George W. Bush's administration, said on "Tucker CarlsonTucker CarlsonTucker Carlson calls Fauci a 'fraud' after tense hearing Tucker Carlson calls Obama 'one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures' in US political history Don't count out Duckworth in Biden VP race MORE Tonight" on Wednesday.

"I think it would be a bad choice for him, I think the right would love nothing more than to have Susan Rice be the choice. She's never campaigned," she added.

"Somebody like Kamala Harris has shown she can do that. Look at Tammy Duckworth from Illinois. She wants to fight. She’s scrappy. I think Susan Rice is not going to have this. So my prediction is it will not be Susan Rice," Perino said. 

"She might make a great chief of staff. I don't think she would be a great vice presidential pick for Joe Biden," Perino, anchor of "The Daily Briefing" and co-host of "The Five" concluded.
