Joe Biden made an announcement today that most Democrats were hoping for. With President Obama and Jill Biden next to his side, he announced that he will not run for President, and that it is too late to mount an effective campaign in the race for president.
Joe is no phony. He could have easily gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money, buy at what expense. He would have to attack her character. He has run and lost the race to the White House more than once in the past, and even though he reached a pinnacle in his life as being the Vice-President of the United state, he stated he will not be a candidate, but will not be silent. The Democratic nominee that will run against the Republican nominee will have the support of Joe Biden.
Joe made this decision with the support of his family.
As for President Obama, he could have not had a better Vice-President. Joe is and always will be very supportive of his boss, President Barack Obama.
He ran for president in 1984, and then re-ran again in 1988, but because of a plagiarism scandal, he dropped out of the race a second time. Many think that Joe just didn't have it in him to run. The facts are he was deeply saddened when his son Beau Biden passed away because of cancer. More-so that he said that if he became President of the United States, he would be the President who helped cure cancer. I fully expect that Joe Biden will support the cause of overcoming cancer in every breath he takes until the end.
With Joe out of the race, Hillary's poll numbers will most definitely go way up. For Bernie Sanders to catch up and defeat Hillary in the primary elections, seems to be an insurmountable possibility. Hillary Clinton may now just have exactly what she needs as far as unified support for her to become the nominee.
President Barack Obama stood by Joe's side when he made his announcement in the Rose Garden at the White House, along with his wife. Hillary's numbers went up after the first Democratic debate this month. Now the question is whether she can keep them up or not.
It may start with the Benghazi investigation that commences tomorrow as to which direction her campaign will now run - towards victory or defeat. I put my money on Hillary, overcoming alll odds and she becomes the nominee
