Joe Biden might consider making a run for White House 2020

Joe Biden might consider making a run for White House 2020”

Hillary Clinton was not a great presidential candidate, but she "would have been a really good president", according to former Vice President Joe Biden. "I thought I was a great candidate". During his remarks, the former vice president appeared to knock Clinton while suggesting that he would have been a superior candidate in the 2016 election, CNN reports. "Could I? Yes", he said.

"No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for that moment in the nation's history they are most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country", TheStreet quoted him as saying.

"I may very well do it", he said.

Biden would be nearly 78 if he made a decision to run in the next presidential election cycle in 2020.

According to Fox Business Network, Biden addressed the Democratic presidential nominee's surprise November defeat to President Trump in blunt terms. In a recent poll by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, Biden was shown to have the best chance of beating Trump if the election were held today. "That's the total reason", Biden said.

After eight years of working in the White House alongside former President Obama, Biden said his priority was to "put back together" his family after his son Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015. This is America. We all walk around like, 'Oh my God.

"The public is sick of it.This fever has to break", he said. "I thought I was a great candidate".

Biden would be almost 78 years old in 2020.

Biden even indicated that he was somewhat hesitant to join the Obama campaign as the running mate, initially turning the job down, CNN notes.

The former vice president admitted that the previous administration "made mistakes" and that his disagreements with the president even devolved into "shouting matches" at times.

Biden added that he plans to give the $200,000 fee he received for speaking to SALT to charity.
