Biden: ‘There is a chance’ I’ll primary Clinton.

(CNN)Vice President Joe Biden opened the door Wednesday to a potential presidential primary challenge to former secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

President Obama boasted during his State of the Union address that he won two presidential elections, and that his second in command, Joe Biden, may like to follow in his boss’ footsteps. The Vice President revealed Wednesday on Good Morning America that “yes, there’s a chance” he may run in 2016 and likely face presumed Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton for the White House.

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.

Hillary Clinton hast not yet revealed her political intentions and even her own daughter, Chelsea Clinton, insists the family is in the dark on a possible campaign. “It’s really sweet how my mom is just so clearly happy being a grandma and I know she’s going to be a great grandma, whatever other choices she makes in her life.” 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. Elizabeth Warren, a liberal icon whom many progressives see as their only alternative to Clinton. “I think this is wide open on both sides,” he said of the presidential primaries. “Right now my focus is getting implemented what the president talked about last night: to nail down this recovery and get the middle class back in the game.

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.
