Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Vice President Joe Biden says he's convinced America is better positioned than other nations to continue to lead the world's economy – whether or not his boss is still in charge.

Biden touted the resiliency of the U.S. economy on Thursday during remarks to the Ohio Newspaper Association.

He said the economy will continue to provide Americans with decent jobs for years to come whether or not he and President Barack Obama are in office. And he said he's convinced that people are regaining confidence about the country's ability to lead economically.

Biden said he believed that in the year 2020 or 2030, the U.S. would be "the single most vibrant economy in the world," adding that is in the world's interest that it is.
