"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.

"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.
