Asked by CBS News correspondent Norah O’Donnell whether he chose not to run because “you think you couldn’t win” or “didn’t want to run,” Biden answered:
“Couldn’t win. I’ll be very blunt. If I thought we could’ve put together the campaign that our supporters deserve and our contributors deserved, I would have gone ahead and done it.”
Jill Biden also said she was disappointed, saying, “Oh, yeah, sure,” when asked whether she had encouraged her husband to run.
“I thought Joe would be a great president,” she said.
