Biden in 2016?

(CNN) – For now Vice President Joe Biden is focused on the president's reelection effort, but come 2016 he may be whistling a different tune.

The former presidential candidate and Delaware senator left the door open to running for president again in an exclusive interview with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley.

"I'll make up my mind on that later," Biden said in an interview set to air Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "I'm in one of the, probably the best shape I've been in in my life … I'm doing pretty well. I'm enjoying what I'm doing, and as long as I do, I'm going to continue to do it."

"And we'll find out, you know, let's get the president reelected," Biden added.

- Watch the video on CNN's "The Situation Room" at 4 p.m. ET.

    What has Mr Biden done that would give him any credibility as an executive?

    Another intelligent person in the White House after 8 years of Obama, another intelligent person? Absolutely.
    Biden gets my vote.

    Kick stupidity out of Washington! Don't vote for any of the GOP!

    Taking these terrorist leaders out one at time with Airstrikes and Special Forces, is what Biden was preaching should be done when Bush was in office. No coincidence it's a successful program today with him as the VP. No coincidence Obama picked him to be VP. There's a time for Hilary – it's just not now as VP. Go Joe Go!!

    I think Hillary Clinton is going to give Joe Biden quite a run for the moolah in 2016. She has been demonstrating Presidentiality all over the world.

    Most of Biden's "gaffes" have only been embarrassing, politically, because they were politically incorrectly truthful. It was a big F'n deal. I would rather have seen him as Secretary of State, in that he would have accomplished more, although Hillary has done a great job, and Biden has been a very active and engaged V.P. Having said that, I'm not sure I'd vote for anyone for President that's 74 or older. Reagan and McCain come to mind.

    Dear GOPers who laugh at Biden running,
    Your top polling candidate for the next election is Herman Cain. If you are still laughing, you just don't get it. Thank you for 4-12 more years.
    Signed,
    The other guys.

    Biden is more of an idiot than Obama, and that is saying a lot! Thankfully both of them will be gone in 2012. Then the real work of undoing all of the damage Obama/Biden have inflicted on this country will have to begin. ANYBODY BUT OBAMA 2012!!!

    First, he got 2% of the vote in the Dem primaries in 08, even they knew he would never be taken seriously. Second, he will be out of a job come Jan, 2013.

    Nov. 2012 can't come fast enough.
