From a White House pool report filed from Panama City, Panama, where Vice President Joe Biden is meeting with government officials to talk about the country's economic growth:

The doors were opened and the VP announced. Both men threw their arms out in recognition and warm greeting. VP said something about Panama President Ricardo Martinelli looking good -- as people NOT running for office anymore do, VP noted. (The president is term-limited and VP will meet with candidates for the job later today.)

THEN Mr. Martinelli replied something like, "YOU'RE going to be running next time." Biden chuckled, mildly abashed and quickly said, "Oh, we'll talk about that."
