Vice President Biden votes and hints at 2016 possibilities

Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill Biden voted Tuesday in Greenville, Del.

Vice President Biden, while voting Tuesday morning in Greenville, Del.,  indicated he will keep open the possibility of a 2016 run for office – any office. Asked by a reporter whether this day would mark the last time he would vote for himself, Biden grinned and responded, “No, I don’t think so.”

The vice president arrived at his polling station at Alexis I. duPont High School  shortly after 7 a.m. and entered the school holding the hand of his granddaughter Natalie. Biden's wife, along with son and Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden and daughter-in-law Hallie Biden accompanied him.

About three dozen voters had arrived and were waiting in line ahead of Biden and his family. The vice president chatted with people in line and spent about 20 seconds in the voting booth before emerging.

"It's always a kick, it really is, to see people out here," Biden said. "I hope everybody exercises their right to vote. It's a great honor. And people who are standing in line in a lot of places, I encourage you to stand in line as long as you have to."
