Washington - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is citing favorable comments from Vice President Joe Biden that stopped short of an endorsement of his campaign.

Biden told The New York Times he prefers Sanders' "aspirational approach" to rival Hillary Clinton's "caution".

Sanders on Thursday told a crowd at the Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania, that he thinks "the Vice President is exactly right."

Sanders says he thinks being aspirational means "having the courage to envision a nation that allows us to fulfill the potential we know we have as a people".

The Vermont senator acknowledges he's thinking big, but denies that proposals like free public college, campaign finance reform and universal health care are radical ideas.

Biden was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and is hugely popular in the state.
