Biden touts modest finances as Clinton wealth controversy swirls

Washington (CNN) - He's long joked about his modest financial standing, but on Monday Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged he's come a long way since being listed among the poorest members of Congress.

Biden's comments seemed to contrast his modest finances with those of Clinton, who could be a rival on the presidential campaign trail if both decide to run for the White House again in 2016.
