Several months after the Presidential Election took place, former Vice President Joe Biden is speaking out and he is saying a mouth full. He admits that the 2016 Democratic nominee #Hillary Clinton was not the best candidate, but she would have been a really good president. What exactly does he mean by that statement?

When Biden spoke at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas last Thursday, he explained that Clinton did not do a good job of taking on Donald Trump. Then he added that he believed he could have done a better job than Clinton on the campaign trail. Biden admitted something else that got his listeners' attention.

Biden might run in 2020

CNN reported that Biden says he is frustrated with what is going on in Congress and what Trump is doing. It might be too early to get excited about what Biden said, but he said he is so frustrated that he might be forced to run for president in 2020. As of now, he is leaving his options open. Biden said if things don't improve by then, there is a good chance that he will run for president.

Biden expressed what a lot of Americans have been saying. He said the public is sick of the way Trump is running the country. Even though #Joe Biden will be 78 years old in 2020, he believes he still will be equipped to run the country. His decision not to run in 2016 was because his son Beau had recently died of brain cancer at the age of 35. At that time, Biden was dealing with his grief.

Not the first time

This was not the first time Biden has made similar statements. Several times before, he outlined what he thought was wrong with the 2016 Democratic campaign. He talked about it during an interview last year and again last March. He summed everything up by saying that he doesn't think Clinton figured out how to campaign successfully. Even so, Biden did endorse Clinton over Bernie Sanders.

Biden seems to be in a better place now than he was when he could have agreed to run for president. He confessed that he regrets every day that he did not run against #Donald Trump. Without a doubt, he believes he would have won. He said it was the right decision not to run at the time, but now he believes a third run for the White House might be a charm for him in 2020.

The former vice president believes two things. He believes he can run a much better campaign than Clinton did, and he believes he would be a much better president than Donald Trump is. It is a long time until 2020, but the public will more than likely hear other things about this subject as time goes on.
