Post Show Thoughts: VP Biden on 2012, economy

We had a busy Meet the Press this morning with headlines out of both the Romney and Obama campaigns. 

Vice President Joe Biden made news in showing his support for Gay marriage.

"I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties." (You can read more about Biden's comments from NBC's Carrie Dann)

On the economy, Biden also defended the administration's jobs record saying there has been "steady growth" and "no stagnation."

As the president's opponent, Mitt Romney, decides on his own running mate, one of those people mentioned as a possibility is New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte. She was on our roundtable today and did more than leave the door open to being Romney's pick.

When David asked Ayotte if she was ready to be president, she replied, "I have great experience as attorney general of the state. I'm very proud of that experience. And i would say i have, some would say, better experience than Barack Obama had when he was Senator and ran."

However, Ayotte added that her main focus right now is "serving New Hampshire."

You can watch our entire conversation on our website to hear more of David's interview with Vice President Biden as well as our roundtable featuring Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH); Chief Economist from Mesirow Financial Diane Swonk; and NBC's Chuck Todd and Tom Brokaw.

We'll be back next week. If it's Sunday, it's Meet the Press.
