Former Vice PresidentJoe Biden says he wouldn't have agreed to replace Hillary Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee under any circumstances. "I was not ready in terms of my family", Biden said, referencing his son Beau, who had recently died from brain cancer.
"I honest to God haven't made up my mind about that", he said.
"No, I'm not closing the door". The painful subject forms the story of his new memoir, 'Promise Me, Dad, ' set for release this week. "I've been around too long, and I'm a great respecter of fate".
"Look I can tell you honestly, if the Lord almighty came down, sat in the middle of the table and said 'Joe, the nomination is yours but you got to take it now, ' I would say no, because ..."
Rain chances this week
We will see a nice blend of mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies for the rest of the work week. Ridgefield had around 3 inches, with southern CT areas got from a dusting to a half inch.
"We're both hoping that both our parties generate some real energetic people who have the depth and capacity to do it", Biden said.
"It's mostly the military men that are around him that have been the stable factors in the conduct of the foreign policy, a lot of bravado, but he hasn't changed a whole lot so far", Biden admitted - which is still not exactly naming something Trump is doing well, but bless his heart for trying.
According to the Independent, Biden has had 'stern words for Clinton.' Purportedly, he was never a major supporter of the failed Democrat candidate for the Presidency, although he campaigned relentlessly for her whilst on the campaign trail. "I did 83 campaign events for Hillary".
Kasich, who has been an outspoken opponent of Trump's since he challenged him for the Republican nomination in 2016, declined to address his own 2020 plans. "I don't regret the decision I made because it's the right decision for my family", he said. Biden will be 76 by the time the next Presidential election comes around, just 2 years older than Trump will be at that time.
