ABC News’ Teddy Davis and John Santucci Report: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., will not be lining up behind Sen. Barack Obama when the Illinois Democrat becomes the pledged delegate majority winner later today nor does he plan to make an endorsement on June 3rd when the primary season draws to a close.

But in a Tuesday speech to the liberal Center for American Progress Action Fund on the "holes" in Sen. John McCain’s foreign policy, Biden showed off why he might make a strong running mate for Obama, and he upped the pressure on Clinton to embrace the "probable" Democratic nominee two weeks from today.

"From my standpoint and my unsolicited prediction will be, come June 3rd, there will be a very hard accounting on the part of Hillary as to whether or not she stays and continues this fight or shortly thereafter whether or not she fully embraces Barack Obama," said Biden.
