CBS reporter Major Garrett asked President Barack Obama Friday “if it’s too late for Joe Biden to run for president” in 2016, amid continuing speculation about whether Biden will be a late entrant into the race for the Democratic nomination.
Obama, not surprisingly, had a less than decisive answer.
