Biden calls on African leaders in fight for democracy, pledges U.S. support

(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden laid the interests of the United States, and the world, alongside the success of African countries in a pledge to support regions of the continent where he says democracy is threatened.

Citing an old African proverb, Biden encouraged the attendees to work with partners for a better future: “'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ There is no time when that is more true than today. We’re prepared to go with you, if you want us to.”

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.

The vice president's comments came a day after Hillary Clinton rekindled debate over her and her husband's wealth by making a comparison to other wealthy people who the former secretary of state said were "truly well off." 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.
