In December, NYPost Page Six reported Clinton and Bloomberg were spotted having dinner together at Orso restaurant in New York City. Doomberg floated the idea of having Clinton on the ticket last week. But now Clinton is saying it isn't going to happen.
Clinton asked if she'd be Bloomberg's vice president: 'Oh no'
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday quashed rumors she would consider being former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's vice presidential running mate.
"Oh no," Clinton said when asked the question during a Vocero interview while in Puerto Rico for a Clinton Global Initiative event. "I'm just waiting and watching as this plays out. I will support whoever the nominee is."
Matt Drudge first reported on Saturday that Bloomberg was considering Clinton as his running mate, but the story was not confirmed, according to Fox News. The Bloomberg campaign replied to these reports saying, "We are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation."
Earlier this month, Clinton went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, stating that she would "never say never" in response to DeGeneres's question asking if she would consider being a candidate's running mate.
She later clarified in the interview, "I never say never because I do believe in serving my country — but it's not going to happen," referring to when she twice denied President Obama's request to appoint her as secretary of State
