U.S. Vice President Joe Biden speaks at a White House Community Leaders Briefing on July 16, 2012 in Washington, DC.

Vice President Joe Biden launched two unsuccessful White House bids in 1988 and 2008. He visited to Iowa over the weekend, delivering a keynote address at Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry – a speech that many political observers say came across much like a presidential stump speech.

“I don’t know how many times I’ve walked the picket line, I don’t know how many times I’ve been with you in your hometowns as factories were being padlocked and jobs were sent overseas,” Biden told Iowans on Sunday.

Biden’s Iowa stopover has generated a lot of talk about a potential run, even though the Vice President himself has stay mum on his presidential ambitions.

What would a Biden campaign in 2016 look like? How does his fundraising chops compared to that of another long-rumored potential candidate, Hillary Clinton? As a voter, whom do you prefer: Clinton, Biden or someone else?
