SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is joking about running for president in 2016.
During a visit to a Sarasota, Fla., restaurant on Wednesday, Biden took a customer's cellphone and engaged the man on the other end — apparently the customer's brother — in a lengthy discussion of the health care overhaul law.
After a while, Biden told the man, who seemed to be a Republican, that he wasn't going to argue with him to get his vote. Then Biden said: "After it's all over, when your insurance rates go down, then you'll vote for me in 2016."
Biden's campaign declined to comment on his remark or clarify his plans for 2016.
The exchange followed a political rally in which Biden slammed a GOP ad on the auto industry as "flagrantly dishonest."
