Biden: Economy kept McCain from victory over Obama
By FELICIA FONSECAAssociated Press
Biden on Friday said the election between Barack Obama and McCain would have been incredibly close, but McCain could have squeaked out a victory.
Biden made the comment during a forum that's part of the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.
The two touched on the gun control debate following the Newtown shootings and the bombings in Boston, but made no mention of Syria.
The event was more of an interview of Biden than a discussion between the former Senate colleagues.
McCain says Biden has a unique perspective on the United States' role in the world because of his experience in Washington, D.C.
