WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Will they be this friendly towards one another come 2016?
An email sent by the Democratic National Committee Tuesday to supporters shows a picture of Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton smiling and pointing at the camera in the Oval Office in an effort to get people to join the Democratic Party.
“These Democrats Want To Know: Are You In?” the email states.
The picture also shows President Barack Obama in the foreground facing the chipper couple with his arms wide open.
The email was paid for by the DNC and was not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
Both Clinton and Biden are two of the presumed favorites to possibly run for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
Biden, who hasn’t ruled out a third run for president, recently visited Iowa, while Clinton said in a New York Magazine interview that she is wrestling with running for president again.
Obama said in a broadcast interview that he suspects both politicians would say it was “way too premature” to focus on the race.
