She said "no" directly in response to a straight question as to whether Clinton would be on the ticket instead of Biden.

Clinton has repeatedly said she plans to leave public service after her stint as secretary of State. Nevertheless, speculation has continued that Obama could regain some of the supporters he's lost during his first term by replacing Biden with Clinton.

Biden himself has shown no sign of leaving his current role and has also refused to definitively close the door on a 2016 presidential run. He's said he wants to focus on reelecting Obama right now and then face the 2016 question later on.
