Jill Biden: ‘Maybe America Missed an Opportunity’ When Joe Decided Not to Run (The Washington Free Beacon)
Second Lady Jill Biden didn’t sound like she was Ready for Hillary Clinton on Friday, telling The Today Show that “maybe America missed an opportunity” with Vice President Joe Biden deciding not to run for president.
Joe Biden publicly mulled a run while mourning the death of his son Beau last year. He ultimately decided against it, leaving the Democratic field essentially a two-person race between Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).
“I really do feel Joe would have made a great president,” his wife said. “I think he has the character. I think that he’s a convener. I think that one of his strengths is compromise, so I feel maybe America missed an opportunity.
