Biden says he has ‘plenty of time’ to weigh presidency
Washington — 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.
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.
He tells NBCs “Today” show “I was fairly effective getting controversial things resolved,” citing his work on the Violence Against Women Act when he was a member of the Senate representing Delaware.
Biden says that running for president is “not my focus now.” He says instead that his goal is “to keep this recovery moving.” Biden also says he has “plenty of time” between now and this summer to make a decision about running.
