Biden: I Made ‘Right Decision’ Not to Run
Vice President Joe Biden is happy with his decision not to run in the current election cycle.
“My decision, I know, was the right decision,” he told Bloomberg in an interview published Wednesday.
“I believed I could win, but that’s not enough. I know myself. And I know it takes time,” he told Bloomberg on Air Force Two after a trip to Ukraine.
“You’ve got to get through the first Thanksgiving — the first empty chair; the first Christmas, the first smell of spring.”
The Hill reports:
Biden told Bloomberg he wouldn’t endorse a candidate in the Democratic presidential primary despite having met with both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Gov. Martin O’Malley (Md.) in the last two months. He said he’s also spoken with Hillary Clinton and told all three candidates he is available for advice.
His son’s death has prompted him to focus on helping to boost cancer research.
“What I’m doing now, I’m meeting with every center of power within the cancer world. I’m meeting with billionaires who have set up foundations,” he said.
“I’m meeting with everyone from the Mayo Clinic to one of the largest outfits that took care of Beau.”
