VP Biden says he's staying on Democratic ticket

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says there's no question that he'll be in the No. 2 slot on next year's Democratic presidential ticket.

Asked on a nationally broadcast interview about speculation there might be a change, Biden said he's certain he'll be running with President Barack Obama again in 2012, saying, "Absolutely, positively yes. There's never been a question about that."

The former senator acknowledged there had been speculation about whether he would be replaced as the vice presidential candidate.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, Biden firmly asserted he'll be back on the ticket, saying "the president's made that clear and hardly anybody is raising it anymore."
