Joe Biden to run for 2020 US Presidency?


Joe Biden, United States Vice President and close confidante of President Barack Obama, has indicated that he might run for US Presidential elections in 2020.


He was attending a senate session on Monday, after which he told reporters about how much he enjoyed working in the chamber over his long career there.



CNN asked him jokingly if he planned to run for office again."Yeah, I am. I'm going to run in 2020," Biden responded.

When asked by reporters for what position, Biden responded, "For president. What the hell, man."


Reportedly, when Biden was told by the media they were planning to publish his quotes, the vice president responded, "That's okay."



In an attempt to clarify, he said "I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committing to anything. I learned a long time ago fate has a strange way of intervening."



Interestingly, Biden represented Delaware for 36 years in the Senate before he became President Barack Obama's vice president in 2008.


Biden ran president in 1988 and in 2008, but decided against another presidential bid this election cycle in a October 2015 news conference. Biden formally announced that he would not pursue a presidential campaign in 2016. He said that the window had closed on "mounting a realistic campaign for president." Instead, the vice president hit the trail for Hillary Clinton.
