Really awkward moment when Obama refuses to endorse Biden for president; plugs Hillary right in front of him

President Obama and Vice President Biden experienced an awkward moment on “CBS This Morning” Thursday, when Obama refused to endorse Biden in a presidential run with the two standing right next to one another.

No matter how coy he sounds when asked, there’s no question but that Biden wants to be president — he ran against Obama in the 2008 primary. So when the question of 2016 came up, Biden had high praise for the president.

“If I decide to run, believe me, this is the first guy I talk to,” the vice president told CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett, indicating Obama.

When the president was asked for his thoughts, he said Biden “will go down as one of the finest vice presidents in history,” but added “I suspect there will be other potential candidates in 2016.”

And with that, he offered special praise for his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.
