    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden hold hands in the air during a campaign rally, on Aug. 15, 2016, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. NBC News confirmed that Clinton's campaign is considering Biden as Secretary of State if she wins.

    Vice President Joe Biden is under consideration for secretary of state if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, a trusted source confirmed to NBC News Thursday night.

    Politico first reported that Biden is "at the top of the internal short list" of the Clinton's transition team's list for the post.

    Biden, a senator for 36 years who has served as chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee before becoming vice president, has hammered Donald Trump over his cozy statements about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
