Biden also defended his record on foreign policy when asked about former Defense Secretary Bob Gates' claim that Biden was "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue" in the past forty years. In his book, Gates also called Biden "a man of integrity," which the Vice President said was the part he focused on.
"The fundamental problem here is Bob Gates and I have disagreed on almost every major foreign policy since Vietnam," Biden said. "I'm very comfortable with my position. I let the American public judge who's been right or wrong, Bob Gates or me, and history will judge ultimately who of us was right or wrong, but he's a fine man."
