(CNSNews.com) - Speaking in Portsmouth, N.H., on Friday, where he was introduced by Vice President Joe Biden, President Barack Obama said he could not have a better vice president and that Biden was a "wonderful, wonderful man."

"Joe Biden was fired up," said Obama. "And I meant what I said at the convention: I could not have a better Vice President. But, as importantly, I could not ask for a better and more loyal friend than Joe Biden. He is a wonderful, wonderful man.

"And last night, I did my best to lay out the stakes in this election," said Obama. "You see, now that both sides have made their argument, there's a big choice to make. And I honestly believe this is the biggest choice, the clearest choice, of any time in our generation, because it's not just a choice between two candidates or two political parties. It is a choice between two different paths for America--two fundamentally different visions for how we move forward."
