Oprah Winfrey talks to former Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, about his highly anticipated memoir, "Promise Me Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and objective".
The 74-year-old said avoiding the 2016 race was "the right decision for my family" after his 46-year-old son Beau died of brain cancer in May 2015.
But, the former vice president said, he couldn't positively answer whether he was ready to give his whole heart and soul to running. Biden is expected to talk more about his late son in his upcoming book, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and objective", which will be released November 14. "And that's why I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman-not me, not Bill, nobody-more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America". "I believed I was", Biden said.
At the time, Biden and his family were just five months removed from the death of his son, Beau, a former DE attorney general and serviceman, due to brain cancer at the age of 46.
Biden certainly hasn't been shy about criticizing the current president Donald Trump. "The honest to God answer is that I don't know", he said.
The former vice president lamented the loss of decency among politicians and citizens, citing a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August that turned violent.
Biden told Oprah that good leaders understand their strengths and weaknesses, adding that "the people who don't do that are the people who aren't self-aware enough to know. They play to their strengths and try to shore up their weaknesses", Biden said. "Most of the time that abuse ends up in their downfall as well".
