Biden Thinks The GOP Would’ve Eaten Him Alive If He Ran For President

Joe Biden, who considered mounting a presidential campaign this year, told CNN on Thursday that Republicans “probably would have eaten me alive.”

The Hill reported that when the television network’s Jake Tapper asked whether he would have been a more successful candidate than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the vice president responded: “Oh, I don’t know, they probably would have eaten me alive, you know? Who knows what would have happened. I learned how to become popular. Once you’re not running for president, I mean boom, you’re a popular guy out there.”

Biden nearly threw his hat into the ring, but decided to remain on the sidelines as he continued to grieve the death of his son Beau. Some polls indicated that the former Delaware senator could have effectively challenged Clinton for the nomination and perhaps beaten Donald Trump in last month’s general election.

During the CNN interview, the vice president claimed Clinton could have done better if she had been “really focusing on the real inequities that exist and still exist for working-class, middle-class people who are left behind.” He explained: “What happened was that wasn’t a central part of the campaign moving forward in my view. … We don’t show enough respect to that group that has in fact been left behind.”
