NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told the New York Times that she would "probably not" take an offer from Joe Biden to become the ambassador to the United Nations.

Considering the UN is headquartered in New York City, Ocasio-Cortez -- who represents parts of Queens and the Bronx -- said the commute would be an easy one.

"That was the one perk of this," she said. "I would get to stay home."

AOC endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders as the 2020 Democratic nominee before he dropped out of the race and the Times previously brought up her name for a potential nomination over whom Biden should appoint to his "national unity cabinet" as a way to champion supporters on the left and right side.

"I think the fact that he is an older white man kind of has a Santa Claus soothing effect on a lot of traditional voters,” AOC said. “I’m convinced that Biden could essentially adopt Bernie’s agenda, and it would not be a factor — as long as he continued to say things like ‘malarkey.’ And just not be Trump.”
