(THE HILL) Vice President Joe Biden made it clear Tuesday that he’s open to running against Hillary Clinton in a 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

Speaking on ABC’s “The View,” Biden pushed back when co-host Barbara Walters claimed he had said he would not enter the next race for the White House if Clinton did.

“No, I haven’t” said that, Biden told Walters. He added later that “whether [Clinton] runs or not will not affect my decision.”
