According to a report in the Washington Post, former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile considered replacing Hillary Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee and replacing her with Vice President Joe Biden.

“Again and again I thought about Joe Biden,” Brazile wrote, adding “No matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on that threat to replace her.”

“I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them,” she wrote.
