For Second Time This Week Jill Biden Hints Joe May Run For President
(CNN) ‚ÄĒ Her husband has already made two bids for the White House, but Jill Biden said in an interview airing Thursday she wasn‚Äôt ruling out a third attempt.
‚ÄúI think Joe would be a great president. I supported him twice. In 1987, I was out there campaigning. The last election I was out there campaigning. Of course, Barack must have thought he would be a good president, too, or he wouldn‚Äôt have chosen him as vice president,‚ÄĚ Biden told CNN‚Äôs Soledad O‚ÄôBrien on ‚ÄúStarting Point.‚ÄĚ
Biden was echoing remarks she made earlier in the week, when she told NBC she ‚Äúwasn‚Äôt sure‚ÄĚ if the 2012 campaign would be her husband‚Äôs last.
The vice president, who would be 73 in four years, stirred speculation in October when he left the door open to a 2016 campaign.
‚ÄúI‚Äôll make up my mind on that later,‚ÄĚ Biden said in an interview on CNN‚Äôs ‚ÄúState of the Union.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúI‚Äôm in one of the, probably the best shape I‚Äôve been in in my life. . . I‚Äôm doing pretty well. I‚Äôm enjoying what I‚Äôm doing, and as long as I do, I‚Äôm going to continue to do it.‚ÄĚ
What do you think? Should he??
