— -- New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, who Mitt Romney has named as a possible running mate, told the Boston Herald this week that she's looking forward to a chance to debate President Joe Biden if picked.

"Certainly debating Joe Biden would be quite enjoyable," Ayotte told The Herald. "Let's face it, he has got a very different vision of this country than I do."

Ayotte joked that it would not be difficult to get Biden, famous for consistently going off message over his decades-long political career, to make a gaffe.

"I don't think there's probably anything we have to do to make that happen," she said. "The vice president does have a way with words."
