With Hillary Clinton’s campaign dogged by more and more questions about government emails on her private servers, and the apparent collective decision by the press to turn their backs on Bernie Sanders, many in the Democratic party are starting to look elsewhere for someone, anyone, to run for president. And Biden’s name has come up more than a few times.
“The most relevant factor in my decision is whether my family and I will have the emotional energy to run,” Biden said, according to AJC.com.“Some might think that’s not appropriate. Unless I can go to my party and the American people and say I’m able to devote my whole heart and my whole soul to this endeavor, it would not be appropriate,” he added.“Can I do it? Can my family undertake what is an arduous commitment? … The honest-to-God answer is I just don’t know.”
