WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden says he can't find "any fundamental difference" between Republican presidential rivals Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, even though they two are fighting each other fiercely for the party's nomination.
Asked in a nationally broadcast interview to comment on the race in the GOP for a candidate to challenge President Barack Obama, Biden called "a Republican fight."
But he also called Gingrich "a talented guy." Says Biden: "The guy is really good."
However, on the critical issues facing the nation, including economic strategy and foreign affairs, Biden said that both Gingrich and Romney are pushing policies that the Obama administration doesn't embrace.
The vice president made the comments in an interview Wednesday on "CBS This Morning."
