(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday that President Barack Obama consults him on all major issues as promised, and that the job is what he hoped it would be.
"There's not a single decision made that he hasn't asked me my view," Biden said on NBC's "Meet the Press" program.
Biden has said he accepted the chance to be vice president on condition that he would be an important consultant and confidante to Obama.
"He's kept his end of the bargain," Biden said of Obama, describing himself as "one of the last people who has the opportunity to make my case to him."
"I think he respects my opinion," the vice president said.
Biden cited a tangible benefit of his role, saying: "I used to react to nominees to the Supreme Court; now I got to help select a Supreme Court nominee," in reference to Obama's nomination of U.S. Appellate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the high court.
