President-elect Joe Biden indicated on Tuesday that he wanted to keep some of his former progressive rivals in the Senate, further diminishing the chances of Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders joining his Cabinet. 

Speaking with NBC News' Lester Holt in his first interview since the Nov. 3 election, Biden said the two progressive senators – who ran their own unsuccessful campaigns for president – were key to helping pass his "very ambitious, very progressive agenda." 

“We already have significant representation among progressives in our administration," Biden said. "There's nothing really off the table. But there's something critical: Taking someone out of the Senate, taking someone out of the House, particularly a person of consequence, is really a difficult decision that would have to be made."

He continued: "I have a very ambitious, very progressive agenda. And it’s gonna take really strong leaders in the House and Senate to get it done.”
