Vice President Joe Biden told Democratic donors in St. Petersburg that he hoped the Republican presidential primary to continue for as long as possible.

Said Biden: “God love them, as my mother would say. I hope they have another 20 debates.”

He added: “I’ve been doing this awhile, and some of you have. I have never seen a time in my lifetime when Republicans haven’t tried to hide the ball, to use a sports metaphor — when they said they were ‘compassionate conservatives. We care about health care. We must preserve Medicare,’ etc. They’re not hiding the ball any more at all, guys. God bless them, they’re saying exactly what they believe. This is going to be the starkest choice the American public is going to make in a long, long time.”
