Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden committed Sunday to picking a woman for his vice president if he were to win the party's nomination.

Speaking during a CNN-hosted primary debate with fellow candidate Bernie Sanders, Biden said: "There are a number of women who would be qualified to be president," and that he would choose a woman as his running mate.

Biden also said that he would try to make his Cabinet reflect the demographics of the country and would choose a black woman to serve on the Supreme Court if a vacancy were to open during his presidency.
