Bernie Sanders’ senior adviser Tad Devine responded positively to the idea of a Clinton-Sanders ticket for the Democratic Party.

In Politico’s “Off Message” Podcast, Devine told Glenn Thrush, “Maybe they’re going to put him on the ticket.”

Thrush asked Devine,”So when the party comes together, and, you know, obviously the odds are not in your favor. You know that. You’ve acknowledged that. If she does win‑‑I’ve talked to a lot of Clinton fans. It’s funny, man. I say, ‘What is your youth voter strategy?’ and their answer to me is, ‘Bernie Sanders.'”

Devine replied, “Well, I don’t know. Maybe they’re going to put him on the ticket then. I don’t know what that means.”

Asked if Sanders would “consider” running second fiddle to Clinton, Devine said, “Well, I’m sure, of course, anyone would.”

However, Devine claimed, “But I don’t think there’s any — any plan for that, and certainly no one’s been talking about any — anything like that. I mean, he — you know, he wouldn’t ever think about a decision like that unless, you know, it was done in the right and proper way.”
