Trick or treat: US vice-president Biden kids about a 2016 run
SARASOTA, Florida (REUTERS) - For his political opponents, Vice-President Joe Biden might have been playing a trick, but for some of his ardent supporters, he could have been dispensing a special treat on Halloween: mentioning on Wednesday a possible run for president in 2016.
After a rally in Sarasota, Biden swung by Station 400, a train station-turned-restaurant filled with many who had cast their votes already for him and President Barack Obama.
One woman said her brother had just watched the film 2016, which lashes Democrat Obama, and said he would vote Republican.
Mr Biden, who spent the last few days campaigning while Mr Obama attended to recovery from the megastorm Sandy on the east coast, had the woman call her brother, and then spent some time discussing the finer points of the healthcare law with the man.
