Biden: ‘I think I could do a good job’ in a 2016 presidential run.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says “I think I could do a good job” as president but says it’s too soon to say if he’ll try to succeed Barack Obama. Asked Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” if he might challenge the former secretary of state, a heavy favorite for the Democratic nomination, Biden said: “Yes, there is a chance.” Biden says “being president and being leader of the Senate is two different things,” noting a vice president’s constitutional responsibility to occasionally preside over the Senate.

But that’s not my focus now,” Biden told the “TODAY” show’s Matt Lauer on Wednesday morning. “My focus now is keeping this recovery moving. I have plenty of time to make that decision between now and the summer, and I will make that decision in that time frame.” The 2016 presidential election campaign officially kicked off last month when former Florida Republican Gov. Several shots were reportedly heard before a vehicle took off “at a high rate of speed.” “They could’ve easily shot and hit the guard shack or … there’s a little garage up front.

However, several GOP hopefuls and even Clinton, the likely Democratic front-runner, continue to mull decisions on whether or not to make a bid for the nation’s highest office. The vice president weighed in on morning news shows hours after President Barack Obama’s sixth State of the Union address, his first in front of a Congress controlled completely by Republicans. Granted, that recognition may not be as robust as you might think, but it should offer him enough of an increase that, even in a contest against a tough competitor, he makes a statement. (The same survey had former Florida governor Jeb Bush leading the Republicans, probably not solely because of his record in that state.) But Biden trails badly.

There’s a timeline in some political universe in which Barack Obama doesn’t pick Biden as his running mate in 2008, and Biden’s days are spent riding the Amtrak and playing Joe Kennedy to his son Beau.
