Roundtable: Obama White House veterans break down 2016

(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden appeared on the morning shows Thursday, answering questions on the President's State of the Union address, and a rumored 2016 bid.

Asked if Hillary Clinton's decision will influence whether he runs or not, Biden told CBS: "No, not directly. The only reason a man or woman would run for president ... is that they think they're in a better position to help the nation at the moment, and what is the plan you have for your the country, and that's the only thing to generate whether you run."

How does the rest of the Democratic party feels about that answer?

Former speechwriter to Obama Jon Lovett, and former deputy press secretary for the Obama 2008 campaign Ben LaBolt discuss.
