Friendly rivals, Biden and Clinton share spotlight

NEW YORK (AP) — One is a party luminary who draws intense political speculation wherever she goes. The other is the vice president of the United States, with his own higher ambitions.

Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Joe Biden are sharing a stage Wednesday night in New York at the Clinton Global Initiative's annual awards ceremony. The event will highlight the unusual dynamics between the two friends and sometime-rivals.

Whether either of them could someday win the White House will be the hard-to-miss subtext.

Both have a base of loyal supporters egging them to run again, and neither has ruled it out. But early indications suggest Clinton would have a heavy advantage over Biden. That creates an awkward and rare situation for a sitting vice president.
