Biden: Clinton won't really affect his 2016 decision

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden says Hillary Clinton's decision on whether she will or won't run for president in 2016 will not directly impact his own decision on whether to launch another bid for the White House.

And Biden, making the rounds on the morning network newscasts, said he thinks he'd "make a good president."

Biden: Public's guns shift similar to same-sex marriage

(CNN) – The progression of public attitude toward an acceptance of same-sex marriage can also be seen in the quest for more restrictive gun control laws, Vice President Joe Biden asserted in an interview published Thursday.

Coming and going: Obama and Biden to be out of country simultaneously

Washington (CNN) - It's the ultimate 'who's minding the store' question: For the first time since taking office, both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be out of the country at the same time (if only for a few hours).

The White House is adamant this will not affect the day-to-day operation of the government. White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters last week, "President Obama is president of the United States everywhere he goes. Vice President Biden is vice president of the United States everywhere that he goes."
