Former Vice President Joe Biden has hinted that a 2020 presidential run could happen — and to celebrate, he just ripped twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a new one.
It’s not often we agree with Biden… but this one time, he’s totally right.
Speaking at a hedge fund managers conference in Las Vegas, Biden said Hillary did poorly against Trump — and it was no ones fault but her own.
Biden received cheers when he admitted “I never thought she was a great candidate.”
Instead, Biden said, “I thought I was a great candidate.”
“No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for the that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country,” Biden said.
To the outside observer, that doesn’t sound extreme. But in the world of hyper-partisan political theater of Washington, D.C., attacking your own party’s failed presidential candidate is a real nasty move.
When asked about his plans for 2020, Biden didn’t rule out another run for president.
“At this point, no one in my family or I have made the judgment to run,” Biden said.
“Could I? Yes,” Biden said. “Would I? Probably no.”
Before he could run for president, however, Biden would have to work on his public image. The Biden family made the news in March when it was reveled that the late Beau Biden’s widow was dating his married brother, Hunter.
