Like Clockwork: Joe Biden ‘I Would Have Been the Best President

Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family.

Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May

For months last year the question of whether Biden would run loomed over the Democratic presidential contest. Then in October he announced that he and his family were still dealing with the grief over Beau’s death and he would not seek the presidency.

His decision last year not to run was viewed as a boost to Hillary Clinton’s run for the Democratic Party’s nomination.

Biden has not endorsed either Clinton or Sen. Bernie Sanders, her opponent in the primary, but he said he thinks Clinton will be the nominee.

“I feel confident that Hillary will be the nominee," Biden said, "and I feel confident she’ll be the next president."

13. You know those super-delegates you're courting...

They have a mind of their own and they will not pick the runner up.

16. He hasn't earned it.

2383 is the magic number. He doesn't even have a majority of the pledged delegates.

3. Not sure but..

all due respect to the way he has handled tragedy in his family, not once but several times. A strong man.

7. You can never completely tell with public figures..

but it took a lot of character to keep ticking and make the commute to Delaware every day for his family after tragedy struck.

5. So much respect for the way he has handled himself.

 

Can't be easy. If something were to happen to Clinton I'm betting he would move into the spot.

12. I don't think so.

 

There are other options. O'Malley might even make the ballot. He lost the primary just like Sanders has.
