Vice President Joe Biden will not seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. “The long process of grieving over the death of his son Beau has closed the window on any chance of mounting a presidential campaign.”
He announced today, with President Barack Obama and his wife Jill Biden that he couldn’t do this if the family wasn’t ready, but unfortunately “I think we are out of time.”
Biden served as a U.S. senator for 36 years, and unsuccessfully sought Democratic nomination for president in 1998.
“While I will not be a candidate I will not be silent, Biden said on Wednesday.”
