WASHINGTON– Vice President Joe Biden is casting himself as an effective voice on the world stage and someone who is in lock-step with President Barack Obama.

He’s also drawing implicit contrasts with previous Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Biden says at a forum honoring previous Vice President Walter Mondale that he and Obama have actually had no ideological disagreements whatsoever. He says he spends in between four and seven hours a day with Obama and that they rely on each other immensely.

Biden says the Obama administration has actually had two terrific secretaries of state, but that when he talks to foreign leaders, they understand he’s promoting Obama.

He states a minimum of half of Obama’s personnel made use of to work for him.

The vice president is considering challenging Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.
