“I was vocal about looking into a whole bunch of things, and this was one of them,” Daley told the Times. “You have to remember, at that point the president was in awful shape, so we were like, ‘Holy Christ, what do we do?’"

Daley went even further on Friday, telling "CBS This Morning" that they never considered replacing Biden with the former secretary of state.

"Not for a moment," Daley said, noting that there was research done on a number of different individuals and issues. 

Former Obama adviser David Plouffe said on Twitter Thursday that the idea was never "entertained" by Obama or "most of us."
