Crossfire: Support for Biden and Christie in 2016

(CNN) – As 2016 chatter heats up, two political insiders spill their potential picks for their respective party's presidential nominee.

CNN political commentator and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile said if Hillary Clinton doesn't run, Vice President Joe Biden might just take the cake.

"I would love to see a woman in the White House and so my money right now would stay on Hillary," Brazile said Monday on CNN's Crossfire.

"But if Joe Biden, I got to tell you, he's been a champion for women's' equality, and I would toss my support to Joe Biden,' she told Crossfire co-host S.E. Cupp.

For his part, former Minnesota governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty, given a choice between GOP favorites Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, would pick Christie.

"Christie would be a stronger candidate," Pawlenty said to Crossfire co-host Van Jones. "No question in my mind."

Cupp: Why Dems better hope Obama's lying

Cupp: Why Dems better hope Obama's lying

(CNN) - As the fallout from the botched launch of Affordable Care Act's exchanges continues, it grows ever clearer that website glitches are only a small part of the problem with the cumbersome - and increasingly unworkable - law. One has to ask: Is President Barack Obama making this up as he goes?

It's hard to imagine that the President and the team charged with implementing Obamacare couldn't have foreseen the problems that have continually popped up. Yet, here we are, bringing in "tech surges" to examine the website problems, security experts to mitigate privacy concerns, insurance executives to "brainstorm" ways to actually insure people. And all the while the President has implied he was the last to know that storm clouds were on the immediate horizon.

There are two possible scenarios here:
