Ex-VP Biden vows to stay involved, but no talk of presidency
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden says he is going to stay engaged for the rest of his life, but he didn’t make any indication about whether he will make a run for the presidency in 2020.
Biden made the comments Sunday during an appearance in Vermont that is part of his ongoing tour that is promoting his book, “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose,” which he wrote after the cancer death of his son Beau.
Biden spoke in the hometown of independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is also considering another run for the presidency.
Biden said last week he believes he is the most qualified person to be president.
After saying he’d stay engaged, Biden spoke of his work in academia and of family life.
