(Newser) – Hillary Clinton already squashed rumors that she’ll replace Joe Biden as vice president on the 2012 ticket, and now Biden himself is doing the same. “I tell you what, there’s real trust, that’s why he’s asked me to run again,” he tells the New York Times. “Look, he said, ‘We’re going to run together, are you going to run?’ I said, ‘Of course, you want me to run with you, I’m happy to run with you.’” The tidbit came at the end of a longer conversation about the upcoming midterm elections.
