FILE - In this Nov. 21, 2013, file photo, Vice President Joe Biden carries a bag full of food as he talks with reporters outside Capriotti's Sandwich Shop in Washington. Biden has sought to make himself as central as possible to the White House's orbit of influence, without overstepping his role in ways he has said were counterproductive in the Bush White House. The delicate balance has sometimes paid off _ Obama has relied on Biden at critical junctures in his presidency. At other times, it's meant being relegated to lower-profile tasks or absent at key moments. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
