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.

Watch State of the Union with Candy Crowley Sundays at 9am ET. For the latest from State of the Union click here.

    He has experience, but all the wrong kind to be a leader of America. He keeps his foot to close to his mouth. Never know what blurt will come out next.

    Biden is the biggest idiot in the entire Washington D.C. area. He's got less chance of being president than a listeria tainted cantaloupe.

    ON THE OTHER HAND........Just what America needs ......Mitt Romney as Pres. and Cain as Vice Pres in a major world problem discussion with Putin or perhaps queen Elizabeth would invite them to Windsor!!!Wonder how the two of them would have handled the oil mess in the gulf or perhaps the flooding in Louisiana.!!!!I'm sure the two of them would have had a ball chasing Bin Laden around the world!!!
    . Realistically, neither has the special qualities it takes to be a leader. One of those things is humility, another ,basic intellegence and a strength of character that seems to be missing in this case........ENOUGH SAID!!!!

    As to Biden.............I like him right where he is.....We could use a little humor right now!!!!!!!

    This guy gives new meaning to the term "laughable lib." Thankfully, come 2013 he'll be out of the public eye; but oh how I'll miss his constant foot-in-mouth spewings.

    Now that is a joke, Biden??? The man is a total idiot and village simpleton. He is not fit to lead anything. Of course most of the people that support him are simpletons themselves.

    Let's get this straight, Candy the Fat Ass's big reveal is that Snuffy the Idiot will run for POTUS in 2016. What a piece of work for so call journalism – but there are idiots out there who consider this noteworthy. Ain't CNN great? Candy should have had "Bye, Bye Blackbird" playing in the background.

    Biden is a lot smarter than he seems in the blooper reel. Like a lot of others here, I agree that he would be too old for the job. Who knows? Maybe the GOP will have worked through its post-W psychosis by then and would nominate someone like Huntsman. The 2016 Democratic nominee will be someone we have barely heard of today. See Clinton in 92, Obama in '08.

    "Biden in 2012" would have made a bombshell headline.

    But he's just layin low, biden his time.

    He'll be a few weeks short of 74 at the 2016 election and will cop the same questions McCain copped at 72. Ron Paul seems to be getting an easy ride though at 76 (77 at next year's election).

    Well, with the job he's done as VP, he's sure to get 2 or 3 votes!

    Moron still thinks he's popular. Yeah, with the late night comics who make fun of him!!

    He is a nice guy. Hillary is the best too....listen, GOP and Tea thugs are for "Rich and Oil Companies of Saudi" not for you. democratic classfare is a moron. He did not vote for Obama either in 2008, well he won. It is sick to read his persona....
