The pandemic became the central topic during the debate. "You can not be less than frank about the nature of the crisis", Sanders said, adding the crisis showed the need for his signature Medicare for All healthcare proposal, which would replace private health insurance with a government-run system. "And I commit that I will. pick a woman to be Vice President".
Biden has opposed the Medicare for All plan, saying it is too costly and he prefers to build on the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, by adding a public option for those who want it.
"I could start naming people, but the press will think that's who I picked", Biden said.
"That has nothing to do with the legitimate concern about income inequality in America. So my very strong tendency is to move in that direction", he said.

"For me it's not just nominating a woman, it is making sure that we have a progressive woman, and there are progressive women out there", Sanders said. Sanders used the outbreak as an opportunity to push his signature promise "Medicare for All", while Biden argued that Americans are "looking for results, not a revolution" and that it was not the time for massive structural change to the US economy.
Sanders, a democratic socialist, said his long-standing support for sweeping economic and social reforms was actually proof of his ability to lead and contrasted it with what he said was Biden's sometimes shifting views. "That's what leadership is". Others on the short list of both men include Senators Any Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren, who also dropped out of the race.
