Announcing from the White House Rose Garden, with President Barack Obama by his side, Vice President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday that he will not run for president in 2016.
This has been the burning question for a long while but feelings by many who listened to him after the death of his son were that he and his family were not emotionally ready to mount such a campaign. As he often said, they were still working through their sorrow. It is interesting that Obama stood by his side as Biden defended Obama’s record of governing and noted that Democrats should stand by the Obama record.
