Joe Biden: I was the ‘great candidate’ for 2016 — not Clinton


A legend in his own mind…


From NY Post: Former Vice President Joe Biden said Hillary Clinton was “never a great candidate” — but that he was.

“I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” Biden said at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas on Thursday, CNN reported.

Despite his blunt assessment of the former Democratic candidate, Biden said Clinton “would have been a really good president.”

Asked if he will seek the presidency in 2020, when he would be almost 78 years old, Biden said: “Could I? Yes. Would I? Probably not.”

He emphasized that his focus now is on his family being “put back together” after the 2015 death of his son Beau from brain cancer and to fulfill financial promises to his wife, including paying off their mortgage. But the famously coy former veep added that once those responsibilities are taken care of, and he’s healthy and the best candidate, “I may very well do it.”

“At this point, no one in my family or I have made the judgment to run,” Biden said.

He also addressed the need to fix the problems facing the country. “Let’s wake up!” he said. “This is America. We all walk around like, ‘Oh my God. What are we going to do?’ C’mon, man!”

Biden didn’t target President Trump directly, but he did appear to allude to the recent turmoil in the White House.


President Obama went eight years “without a single scandal,” he said to applause. “Not one.”

  1. Obama had not one scandal the media covered but in my opinion and the opinion found in facts by others he was guilty of fraud, misconduct, several counts of treason, sedition and murder. And then there were the out right lies he told the American people in order to shove his Communist policies down our throats. Then we have his outright stirring of racial tension in America. He was the worst most destructive President in the history of our country and our Congress gave him a pass even when they knew he had committed fraud, misconduct and treason. Many openly admitted it but they refused to do their duty and uphold their oath and impeach Obama.

    I hope Biden does run in 2020. His creepiness around women will make Trump’s “Grab ’em by the poosy” remark look like child’s play by comparison. Trump will get an even greater percentage of the female vote.

  4. Poor Joe, his dementia is showing. He choose NOT to run due to the fact that his son had just passed away . . . or was he given the word that he was NOT to run by the DNC machine?

  5. just the fact that he said Clinton would have been a really great President shows the horrific lack of judgement he literally swims in,that would make him one of the WORST possible Candidates in existence. That’s not even including his self defense advice for Women that earned him the nickname “Shotgun Joe”.
