Former Vice President Joe Biden says Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, was not the best candidate, but “would have been a really good president.”
During an appearance at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, Biden said he could have done a better job taking on Trump on the campaign trail.
“I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” Biden told attendees.
“Hillary would have been a really good president,” he added.
Biden said the continued gridlock in Washington and the ongoing crisis in the White House could bring him into the fray in 2020, but he wants to leave options open.
“The public is sick of it. … This fever has to break,” Biden said, “I may very well do it,” he said.
“At this point, no one in my family or I have made the judgment to run,” the Former Vice President added. \
