including two clear messages to hillary clinton. one on what she said in last week's debate, when asked to name her favorite enemies. >> well, in addition to the nra, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the iranians, probably the republicans. >> i don't think we should look at republicans as our enemies. they are our opposition. they are not our enemies. and for the sake of the country, we have to work together. >> shortly after biden walked out of the roz garden, he received a call from hillary clinton who then put out a statement praising him saying, i am confident that history isn't finished with joe biden. jonathan carl, abc news, the white house. breaking news from new mexico where an albuquerque police officer has been shot. investigators say the officer was hit several times after making a traffic stop. the suspect considered armed and dangerous, is still on loose. residents are being warned to
