American Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is considering signing actress Roseanne Barr as her running mate.
The Roseanne sitcom star announced her desire to challenge U.S. incumbent Barack Obama in February (12), launching an election campaign with the left-leaning third party just a few days later.
The comedienne recently failed to rally up enough support from delegates, losing out to Stein, but Barr is still holding out hope she may land a spot on the ticket, making plans to attend the Green Party Convention in Baltimore, Maryland this weekend (14-15Jul12) in a bid to solidify her place in a race for the White House.
And it appears she's being strongly considered for the position of vice president, with Stein's campaign manager, Ben Manski, telling The Washington Post that Barr is one of the people on the politician's "shortlist".
