Election Day 2012 isn't for another six days, but Vice President Biden is already thinking about 2016.
Appearing at an eatery in Florida on Wednesday, Biden was chatting by phone with a Republican voter when the vice president half-jokingly made his intentions known about a possible run for the White House.
Biden, of course, hasn't said whether he would run for president in 2016 and has been intensely focused on getting President Obama reelected next week, serving as the president's chief attack dog on the trail.
But he hasn't ruled out a White House bid, either. When the veep was asked by CNN last year if he was closing the door on running for the highest office in the land, Biden replied that he's "not closing anything."
"I wouldn't have run for president in the first place — and I don't think the president would have picked me — unless he thought I'd be good at the job," he said.
Biden could face some fierce opposition if he decides to run for the White House.
