New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, rumored to be on Mitt Romney's list of possible running mates, told the Boston Herald this week that she's looking forward to a chance to debate Vice President Joe Biden if picked.

"Certainly, debating Joe Biden would be quite enjoyable," Ayotte told the Herald. "Let's face it, he's got a very different vision for this country than I do."

Ayotte joked that it would not be difficult to get Biden, famous for consistently going off message over his decades-long political career, to make a gaffe.

"I don't think there's probably anything we have to do to make that happen," she said. "The vice president does have a way with words."

Watch:

Clarification: The original post said that Mitt Romney had named Sen. Kelly Ayotte as a possible running mate, when in fact she has just campaigned with him and been rumored as a VP contender.
