>>> today, the most misunderstood man in washington. that's what a new profile in gq magazine called vice president joe biden , the headline, have you heard the one about president biden? that's no joke. the article challenges the idea that the sometimes gaffe-prone vp doesn't have a chance to win the white house , especially if hillary clinton decides to run. the thought is that joe biden is standing on the sidelines waiting to hear if hillary's going to run. if she decides to run, she'll be a juggernaut and he'll stay out. not so fast. joe biden says, you know what, there's a chance i'm running no matter what.

>> he wants to keep his options open. maybe more importantly, he wants washington to know he is keeping those options open so that he's not a lame duck.
