Will not run for president

21 Oct, 2015

In a statement made from the White House Rose Garden with his wife Jill and President Obama, Biden says he will not run for president, ending months of speculation.

I believe we’re out of time — the time necessary to mount a winning campaign…As my family and I have worked through the grieving process, I’ve said all along — what I’ve said time and again to others — that it may very well be that process, by the time we get through it, closes the window on mounting a realistic campaign for president – that it might close….While I will not be a candidate, I will not be silent. I intend to speak out clearly and forcefully, to influence as much as I can.
