Kanye 2020 buzz is still in the air, and current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is dropping hints that she might want him on her team.

Clinton appeared on the latest episode of Buzzfeed's Another Round podcast this week and talked to hosts Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton about Kanye West, the Black Lives Matter movement, The Good Wife, and more.

When Kanye's political ambitions were mentioned, Clinton started by reiterating  that she's told 'Ye before that he might want to push back his presidential run.

“I have to say, I’ve told Kanye that I think he might want to wait. Cause I’ll be running for reelection."

Instead, Clinton said she may give Kanye some kind of role to help boost his chances in the political arena once her (hypothetical) two terms are up.

“I might want to give him some additional experience so he’s got, on all the other things he’s done on his resume, he’s got some kind of envoy role or something he could point to," Clinton said.

And when it came to the question of what she would say if Kanye one day asked her to be his vp, Clinton answered like a true diplomat.

"I would not rule out anybody for vice president," she said vaguely.
