    Joe Biden regrets not running, "I could have won"

    Former Vice President Joe Biden not only regrets not running for president — he’s “fairly confident” he could have beaten Donald Trump.

    In an appearance at Colgate University on Friday, the university’s president, Brian W. Casey, asked Biden, “Did you ever think, what if? Any regrets that you didn’t run?” “I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very difficult primary, I think I could have won,” he responded. “I don’t know, maybe not. But I thought I could have won.”

    “I had a lot of data and I was fairly confident that if I were the Democratic Party’s nominee, I had a better than even chance of being president,” he went on. “But do I regret not being president? Yes. I was the best qualified.” Biden has been open about his desire for the presidency since he won a Senate seat in 1972. However, the death of his son, Beau Biden, in May 2015 at the age of 46 after a battle with cancer, kept him from running in 2016.

    Biden later hinted to reporters that he might run for president in 2020.

    There are PLENTY of Democrats willing to stipulate that Hillary ran a STUPID campaign. Joe Biden has as much as said so, himself.

    He is probably right.

    (As long as he could have somehow won the DNC's completely rigged Primary)

    Hell, I bet his campaign staff would have even used some form of internet/email security......

    yep. The DNC had Her Majesty slated as the heir apparent ten minutes after Obama became their nominee. she was 'groomed' from that moment on (SOS appointment, which she obviously butchered)

    Not sure he could have won the primary. I think had he run and had Pres Obamas endorsement then maybe he could have won.
