Claiming that he was “the best qualified” candidate for the office, former Vice President Joe Biden said in a speech on Friday that he wishes he had run for president. He also thinks he could have won.
“I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very difficult primary, I think I could have won,” said Biden, noting that if he had been the Democratic Party’s nominee, his chance of securing a victory would have been quite good.
Recalling the time he was able to spend with his son, Beau Biden, who died of cancer in 2015, the former VP said that he now regrets not running for office, but, at the time, he couldn’t concentrate on the presidential race.
He further stated that he doesn’t regret “spending the time he would have spent campaigning with his family, instead.”
