“No one should ever seek the presidency unless they’re able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” Biden said Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“And Beau was my soul. I just wasn’t ready to be able to do that. But, so, my one regret is Beau’s not here. I don’t have any other regrets.”
The Hill reports:
Beau Biden died last summer after a battle with brain cancer.
Joe Biden has cited his son’s death as the primary reason for not entering the race.
He also expressed confidence in Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, although he hasn’t yet made an endorsement.
“I feel confident that Hillary will be the nominee, and I feel confident she’ll be the next president,” Biden said.
