Vice President Joe Biden says he’s not running.
“I believe we’re out of time. The time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination,” he announced from the Rose Garden of the White House in a last-minute statement. He was flanked by President Obama and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden. “I have concluded that [the window] has closed.”
I think it’s a wise move. He had no campaign structure, he’s millions behind in fund-raising, and in terms of positions he’s not a lot different than Hillary Clinton. Chances are he’d lose the nomination, and it would be a sad end to a long and admirable career as a senator and vice president.
