Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said Wednesday there’s a “chance” he’ll challenge former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to be the Democratic party’s presidential nominee in 2016.

“But I haven’t made my mind up about that — we got a lot of work to do between now and then,” he said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “There’s plenty of time.”

He said Mrs. Clinton is a “really competent, capable person and a friend.”

“The person who is [going to] be the next president of the United States is the one who’s going to be able to articulate the clearest vision to the American people where they’re going to take the country,” he said. “I don’t think you have to make up your mind until the summer. I think this is wide open on both sides.”

Mr. Biden said his focus right now is implementing the agenda President Obama laid out in his State of the Union address Tuesday evening. Polls show Mrs. Clinton, who hasn’t formally announced her candidacy yet, is the overwhelming favorite on the Democratic side if she runs.
