Vice President Joe Biden hinted he would make a bid for the White House in 2016, reinforcing speculation about a Democratic primary face-off with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In an interview with GQ
, Biden also compared himself to former Presidents Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, both of whom served as vice president before moving up to the Oval Office.

"I can die a happy man never having been president of the United States of America. But it doesn't mean I won't run," Biden told the magazine in an interview released Thursday.

"The judgment I'll make is, first of all, am I still as full of as much energy as I have now — do I feel this? No. 2, do I think I'm the best person in the position to move the ball? And, you know, we’ll see where the hell I am."

Biden's mention of Jefferson and Adams suggested they serve as inspiration to him for a possible candidacy.

"If you come in the office, I have two portraits hanging — one of Jefferson, one of Adams. Both vice presidents who became presidents," he said.

"I joke to myself: I wonder what their portraits looked like when they were vice presidents."
