Love him or hate him, former Vice President Joe Biden is never short on entertainment, what with his creepy, touchy-feel vibe and slightly insane statements and all.And it seems being out of the political spotlight hasn’t changed him much, particularly when you take a gander at his latest comments about Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election.
Apparently, Biden thinks Hillary wasn’t all that and a bag of chips, and that the best candidate for the job would’ve been, well, him.This guy is too humble.
According to The New York Post, Former Vice President Joe Biden said Hillary Clinton was “never a great candidate” — but that he was.
“I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” Biden said at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas on Thursday, CNN reported.Despite his blunt assessment of the former Democratic candidate, Biden said Clinton “would have been a really good president.”
Asked if he will seek the presidency in 2020, when he would be almost 78 years old, Biden said: “Could I? Yes. Would I? Probably not.”
He emphasized that his focus now is on his family being “put back together” after the 2015 death of his son Beau from brain cancer and to fulfill financial promises to his wife, including paying off their mortgage.But the famously coy former veep added that once those responsibilities are taken care of, and he’s healthy and the best candidate, “I may very well do it.”
“At this point, no one in my family or I have made the judgment to run,” Biden said.
Anyone else thankful this guy has decided, as of now, not to attempt a run for the presidency at the tender age of darn near 80?Isn’t the Democratic Party supposed to be the party of diversity and youth? If so, why does it seem like only crusty, old white people (sorry, Ms. Warren) are running for office?
