Biden still eyeing WH

2009-06-14 17:19

Washington - US Vice-President Joe Biden isn't ruling out his own presidential aspirations.

The two-time presidential candidate says the current line-up is the right one, with Biden as President Barack Obama's No. 2. The Vice-President says he is a close adviser to Obama and is satisfied with his role in the administration.

For instance, Biden says, he reacted to Supreme Court nominees as a veteran Senator. Now, he gets to help pick them.

But he says he still has his eye on the Oval Office.

Biden is 66 years old and would be 73 on Election Day in 2016.

Biden unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination in 1988 and again in 2008.

Biden appeared on Sunday on NBC television's Meet the Press.
