'Special' controversy has Biden attacking, Romney denying

(CNN) - Mitt Romney said Wednesday that a racially charged anonymous quote in a British newspaper slamming President Barack Obama for his understanding of the United States' 'special relationship' with Britain did not come from him, and did not reflect the presumptive GOP nominee's views.

"I’m not sure who this person is, but I can tell you that we have a very special relationship between the United States and Great Britain," Romney said in an interview with NBC News. "But I also believe the president understands that."

Biden honors heroism of police officers

(CNN) – In an address to police officers Monday, Vice President Joe Biden focused almost exclusively on the heroism displayed in the aftermath of last week's deadly shooting in Colorado, saying law enforcement officers and ordinary citizens who rushed to help victims of the massacre "define who we are as a nation."

"They make us proud of our country, and maybe more important at this moment, they make us confident that this country is made of that sterner stuff and there is reason to be hopeful and confident," Biden told the National Association of Police Organizations, meeting in Manalapan, Florida.

In the 'Big Easy,' vice president addresses journalists

New Orleans (CNN) – Fresh from rallying public employees and union workers in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden mixed a dose of humor with blunt seriousness at the National Association of Black Journalist convention on Wednesday.

“I believe the differences in this election are stark,” he said. “I believe Romney and this new Republican Party - because this ain’t your father’s Republican Party — (and) their social policy… is a throwback to the ’50’s.”

Second lady talks prospects of 'Biden 2016'

(CNN) – Her husband has already made two bids for the White House, but Jill Biden said in an interview airing Thursday she wasn't ruling out a third attempt.

"I think Joe would be a great president. I supported him twice. In 1987, I was out there campaigning. The last election I was out there campaigning. Of course, Barack must have thought he would be a good president, too, or he wouldn't have chosen him as vice president," Biden told CNN's Soledad O'Brien on "Starting Point."
