Jill Biden on 2016: "Never say never"
Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, says she and her husband will "take each day as it comes" in deciding whether or not the current VP will run for president in 2016.
"We will just see what happens," Biden said in an appearance on CBS' "The Early Show" on Wednesday.
Biden pointed out that the last election yielded unexpected results for her husband - and that "you never know what is going to happen."
"Look what happened last election," she told The Early Show's Erica Hill. "We ran against Barack. We lost and then he [Biden] was chosen vice president. So you never know what is going to happen."
Still, Biden did not rule out the possibility of a bid in 2016.
"You never say never, but you know, we will just see what happens," she said. "I think you have to take each day as it comes."
Biden, who appeared on the show to discuss her work in Kenya and Somalia, also discussed ways Americans can help needy families in the Horn of Africa - and urged them to make contributions in any way they can.
"We can give a donation to help these mothers and children -- no matter how small. Even $10 will feed a mother and her family for three weeks," Biden said.
She also stressed the importance of raising awareness on the issue, and said those without a lot of money to give can "tell their friends, tell their neighbors, tell their church groups, their school groups that maybe together they could maybe pull together a small sum of money or they might say to their child, you know, there is -- children are starving in Somalia and Kenya and if you would forgo maybe one of your Christmas gifts."
"It's really a gift of life to a child in a refugee camp," she said.Note: For more information on how to donate and lists of organizations providing disaster relief in the Horn of Africa, visit www.usaid.gov/FWD)f
