Friday, May 9, 2014 COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden told graduates at the University of South Carolina that their generation, like his, is living in an age where the world is changing rapidly.

Biden also told more than 1,000 graduates on Friday that they are tasked with ensuring the country continues to move forward.

The speech came hours after the vice president headlined a fundraising lunch in downtown Columbia for the South Carolina Democratic Party.

Biden has said he's considering a third presidential run in 2016. He has made frequent visits to South Carolina, which traditionally is the third state to weigh in on who should become the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees.

Biden spoke at the state party's annual dinner last May. He also attended a fish fry honoring longtime U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn.
