<p>CNN senior Washington correspondent Jeff Zeleny had some fawning words during Thursday&rsquo;s <em>Anderson Cooper 360</em> for Vice President Joe Biden as he continues to mull a 2016 presidential campaign, referring to him as a <strong>&ldquo;generally excellent&rdquo; </strong>campaigner with an<strong> &ldquo;authenticity that is really being craved in this election cycle.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>As part of a segment on the possible run by Biden, host Anderson Cooper asked Zeleny to explain <strong>&ldquo;what do we know about him as a campaigner&rdquo; a</strong>nd<strong> &ldquo;how much of his calculus right now is based on what he perceives Hillary Clinton&#39;s abilities as a campaigner or lack of abilities as a campaigner are.&rdquo;</strong></p>
