In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey on ABC's "Good Morning America," Joe Biden said that he regrets not being president, calling himself the most qualified person in the entire country to be the current President of the United States.
“I have a regret that I am not president,” Biden said, according to the Daily Caller, “because I think there is so much opportunity.”
He then took a major shot at Hillary Clinton by suggesting that he himself, rather than the former first lady, was actually the person most qualified to run in 2016 to continue the legacy of Barack Obama. According to Biden, he truly did believe that he was the most qualified person at the moment.
“Oprah, no woman or man should announce they’re running for president unless they can answer... questions,” Biden explained. “One, do you truly believe you’re the most qualified person at the moment — I believed I was.”
The Washington Examiner reports that Barack Obama claimed that he also wished Joe Biden would have made a bid for the presidency. In fact, Joe Biden remarked that Obama told him in 2014 that he would have made him president if he had the ability to appoint his successor.
Apparently, this revelation was revealed in his new memoir, "Promise Me, Dad," where Biden reveals why he didn't run for president. Among the many reasons why he didn't run was the personal struggle of facing the death of his son, Beau.
Biden told a small group of reporters on Monday that he may run for president, although quickly adding that he isn't yet entirely committed to the idea, according to CNBC.
"Yeah, I am. I am going to run in 2020," Biden said when asked if he would run for office again.
"I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening," he said.
