WASHINGTON -- Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that "in my heart" he could be a good president.

But Biden emphasized, "I haven't made a decision to run and I haven't made a decision not to run."

Biden told NBC's "Today" show that he needs to focus on his current job. Asked on "CBS This Morning" whether his wife wants him to run, he replied, "Jill and I will make that decision later down the road."

In his appearance on NBC, Biden took issue with administration critics who say President Barack Obama suffered "a lost year" in terms of achieving, or even advancing, major policy goals such as an immigration overhaul or new gun control laws.

And Biden said that he likes former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, even though the Republican asserted in his new memoir that Biden had been wrong on practically every foreign policy and national security issue over the past 40 years.

"The fundamental problem here is that Bob Gates and I have disagreed on almost every major foreign policy issue since Vietnam," Biden said.
