Vice President Joe Biden announced today that he will not be candidate for the presidency in 2016…
About time. Personally, I don’t like that he blames the death of his son for this decision. It was his son, after all, who really encouraged him to run. Plus, grief is something that every family deals with. You do not put your whole life on hold. Most of us get two or three days of bereavement time, then it’s back to work.
If Vice President Biden had gotten into the race earlier he would have had my support. I believe he is a very intelligent and very dedicated man. However, as he said, the window has closed. I could not have supported his candidacy at this late stage.
So, who am I supporting? Stay tuned. I’ll let you know.
