He was expected to announce in the coming months that he is running, but Vice President of the United States Joe Biden is NOT running for President, ending months of speculation. Biden, 72, was definitely considering the run and is said to have talked about various campaign strategies with consultants, but according to a spokesman, Biden decided he wouldn’t run on Tuesday for reasons pertaining to his son’s death, noting the window for a successful campaign “has closed.”

“While I will not be a candidate, I will not be silent,” Biden said with President Obama and his wife by his side, hinting that he’ll be involved in the Democratic primaries in one or another.

Biden was considered by many to be the likely candidate for the Democratic Party. I’m hearing that Biden was definitely interested in a run, but something changed his mind.
