During a "Today" show interview on NBC on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden was asked about former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates' comments about him being wrong on most foreign policy issues over the past 20 years.

"Look, I like Bill Gates," Biden began, pointing out that the former defense secretary also called him a "man of integrity" in his book.

"I think he is a man of integrity as well, look the fundamental problem here is that Bill Gates and I — Bob Gates and I — have disagreed on almost every foreign policy issue since Vietnam," Biden continued.
