I’m not a fan of Joe Biden, but I can certainly understand his logic here. He had a tough year and a half leading up to the 2016 election. His son died of brain cancer in May of 2015 and seriously considered running for president. Biden was so emotionally drained from the death of his son, he just couldn’t pull the trigger and run in the Democrat primary for president. But there was another factor too that prevented him from running.. It was Hillary Clinton and her smear machine that would have targeted Biden, his dead son and his entire family if he dared run against Queen Hillary Clinton.

Biden writes that he feared opposition research from the Clinton camp that would “stop at nothing,” and he eventually announced he would not run in October 2015.
“Clinton backers sent the signal that they would not stop at voting records and policies if I did get in the race,” Biden reveals.
On “Outnumbered,” Marie Harf agreed with Biden’s claim that he could have defeated Clinton in the primary.
“I also think he probably could have given Trump much more of a competitive general election race,” Harf said. “And I think that he is also looking at 2020.”
Kennedy said that Biden’s book and Donna Brazile’s book “sound the death knell for Hillary Clinton.”
She explained that different factions of the Democratic Party are speaking out and declaring that it’s over for Clinton politically.
Normally, I’d say too bad Joe. Face up to what your legacy really is, a failed one. But with the added burden of a death of a son from cancer? That’s over the top. And I can understand why Biden shied away. It’s sad, but Joe Biden is right. The Clinton Crime Family would have done everything they could to rip open emotional wounds suffered by Joe Biden with the loss of his son, and the loss of his wife and kids from a car crash in the 1970’s.
