Al Sharpton wants Biden, Kerry, Warren to run if Clinton indicted

Rev. Al Sharpton takes Hillary Clinton at her word that she won't be indicted over her email scandal, but said if she does he would hope that a well-known party unifier would step in to replace her.

He even named names in an interview today: Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn.

At a media roundtable hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, he said he feels confident that Clinton won't be indicted after her likely nomination in July, citing her firm denial at Wednesday night's Democratic debate.

"I don't think that will happen," he said of an indictment that would force her to leave the race.

But if she was, he was asked for a "fresh candidate" who might be able to step in to unite the party and he immediately suggested Biden.

"There's a very fresh face right around the corner in Joe Biden, is that fresh enough for you?" he said in the interview held just two blocks from the White House. He added that Biden is "fresh enough to me."

Sharpton added, "As far as we are down the process you'd have to have somebody that could unite the party quickly."

He had earlier complained that Sen. Bernie Sanders, Clinton's rival in the nomination race, can't win blacks and Latinos, but he didn't rule the Vermont senator out as a Clinton alternative.

Sharpton noted that he supported Kerry when he ran for president in 2004, and he said that a Warren candidacy "would be electrifying."

I would not second guess the black and Latino vote for Bernie.

Bernie can get the black vote with millennials and those in the Northeast.
