Biden and Democrats talk 2016?

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Joe Biden in 2016?
   The vice president is stoking speculation that he may be laying groundwork for a presidential campaign with a series of meetings with Democratic supporters throughout the long weekend of inauguration festivities.
   Biden was meeting with delegates from the Democratic National Committee during a private reception Tuesday following a DNC meeting. The vice president held events at the Naval Observatory over the weekend, invited New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan to his swearing-in and dropped by an Iowa inaugural ball, prompting interest in his plans.
   Biden told CNN in an interview Monday that there are "a whole lot of reasons why I wouldn't run" but that he was focused on helping President Barack Obama. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remains a heavy favorite if she decides to run.
