Boarding his flight to Florida Monday, Joe Biden briefly stopped to speak with the traveling press. Asked to comment on the President leaving Walter Reed Sunday to wave at supporters from inside a car, Biden said he is "reluctant to comment" on anything relating to the President's health and that he would leave that to his doctors.
Asked if he would debate the President if he were healthy by the next scheduled debate on Oct. 15, Biden replied, "If the doctors — listen to the science. If the scientists say that it’s safe and the distance are safe, then that’s fine. I’ll do whatever the experts say is appropriate to do."
He added that he is "looking forward" to the town hall style debate.
"I’m not an expert on that but I think we should be very cautious as I’ve thought all along, and I’m going to continue listening to the scientists," he said. "But I’m looking forward to have an opportunity to do a town hall meeting if that occurs.”
