Biden: Hillary Wasn't a 'Great Candidate' for President

Obama Administration Vice President Joe Biden

While all of those decisions are now in the past, Democrats have been speculating on Biden's future, wondering whether the former vice president would run to challenge Trump in the 2020 race.

Biden, who decided against running for the Oval Office in 2016 due to the death of his son, was asked at what point he realized Hillary Clinton was the correct candidate.

"I don't think she ever really figured it out", Biden said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"I never thought she was a great candidate", he said. When they were both running for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, Biden said her Iraq proposals would lead to "disaster".

Biden's son, Beau Biden III, had been diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma, a brain cancer with a very low survival rate that took his life in May 2015 at the age of 46. "I thought I was the correct candidate".

Biden is one of the most experienced politicians in American history.

"The former vice president is the ideal speaker to mark the momentum and excitement surrounding the opening of the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center", said UNMC Chancellor Jeffrey Gold. I thought I could beat anybody that ran. "I had a lot of data and I was fairly confident that if I were the Democratic party's nominee, I had a better chance, even, of being president".

TheStreet's Ronald Orol, who was also at the SkyBridge Capital event, said the audience clapped at Biden's comments.

"I hope this ceremony serves as a testament to the strides we've made for equality and inspires us to imitate Joe Biden in our support for the LGBTQ community".

On fixing the nation's more systemic problems, he said, "Let's wake up!" And, Beau was my soul.

Biden also made allusion to the state of the country, President Obama went eight years "without a single scandal", Biden said to applause.
