In an interview airing Sunday on "60 Minutes," Biden told O'Donnell that if elected he would put together a bipartisan group to provide recommendations within 180 days on how his administration should work to reform the U.S. court system.

"If elected, what I will do is I'll put together a national commission of, a bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative. And I will ... ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it's getting out of whack ... the way in which it's being handled," Biden said in a video released by CBS on Thursday.

"And it's not about court packing. There's a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I've looked to see what recommendations that commission might make," he added.
