Joe And Jill Biden Discuss His Decision Not To Run For Prez

Joe and his wife, Jill Biden, discuss the Vice President’s decision not to run for President in the 2016 election in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” program, according to a preview of the discussion posted online Sunday.

The full interview is scheduled to air Sunday at 7 p.m. ET.

Biden announced last week that he wouldn’t get in the race for the Democratic nomination in the White House’s Rose Garden, alongside Jill and President Obama.

“I came home and Hunter, our son was upstairs with mom, with Jill. And I walked in and I said, “You know, I just don’t think there’s time,'” Joe Biden said. “I’ve just decided, “I don’t think we can run the kind of campaign we have to run to be able to win.” And I remember Jill just got up off the couch, gave me a big hug, and said, “I think you’re right.””

Jill Biden said she was disappointed that he decided not to run and that she believed he would’ve “been the best President.”
