Vice President Joe Biden says he feels optimistic that the Obama White House and the Republican-run Congress can score several achievements together.

Biden says in an interview he didn't feel an atmosphere of blatant partisanship Tuesday night in the House, where President Barack Obama delivered his next-to-last State of the Union address.

He says it "felt the opposite," compared to recent tensions.

Biden tells NBC's "Today" show that "Republicans realize they're in control and have to govern." He says that reality makes him "more optimistic about getting things done."

The vice president also was asked about what seemed like derisive laughter among some Republicans when Obama noted at one point that he'd run his last campaign.

Biden responded that he didn't think it represented "any institutional disrespect" of the president.
