Joe Biden Also Wishes That He Was the President Right Now

He told Oprah that while he thought he was the best candidate for the job he couldn't give the run everything after the death of his eldest son Beau who was also in politics

74-year-old Biden has been stirring the speculation pot since he nearly jumped into the race in 2016, and reignited rumors of a potential run this week when he told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that he regretted not being president.

Biden previously said he would not seek the 2016 Democratic nomination while he and his family grieved the loss of his son, Joseph "Beau" Biden III, who died of cancer in 2015. "And I think that he is also looking at 2020". "You want to look at them, I want to think of them as this lovely kid in the back of the book, or strong Major in the United States Army, or the guy introducing me at the National Convention". Biden appeared to refer to Trump's response over the summer to white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which the President blamed "many sides" for the violence that left one person dead.

Now promoting his new book, Promise Me Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and goal, about his relationship with Beau, Biden also says that after campaigning for Hillary Clinton, he knew "a month out" from Election Day that Trump was poised to win.

He says that as the primary race was gearing up, he was still grieving his son Beau's death. "But was I prepared to be able to give my whole heart, my whole soul and all my attention to the endeavor?".

"But anyway, yes, I understand", she said. In an emotional moment in January, Obama surprised Biden, whom he called his "brother", with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. "They play to their strengths and try to shore up their weaknesses", he explained.

Winfrey's full interview with Biden airs Sunday on OWN. "And the people who don't do that are the people who aren't self-aware enough to know ... because most of the time that abuse ends up in their downfall as well".

Ugh. Trump isn't the leader we need!
