Former VP Biden to speak at Omaha cancer center dedication

"I never thought she was the correct candidate", Biden said. "I thought I was the correct candidate", according to a tweet from Fusion reporter Hamilton Nolan. Still, however, Biden did emphasize that he thought "Hillary would have been a really good president". With eight years in the executive branch as vice president, and 36 years in the legislative branch as a DE senator, Biden believed he was the "best qualified" person for the role.

The popular two-term vice president surprised many political pundits when, following the 2015 death of his oldest son, Biden announced that he was not interested in succeeding then-boss and now-former President Barack Obama.

Perhaps it could be done more delicately, but to pretend Biden is wrong about Clinton not being a great candidate is to bury your head in the sand. Biden has repeatedly said his emphasis right now is on his family being "put back together", but on Thursday, he left the door open about a possible run in 2020. "I thought I was a great candidate".

Biden also talked about working with Mr. Obama for almost a decade, saying they often disagreed on tactics and even had their share of "shouting matches".

"I think I could have won", Biden said in March speech at Colgate University. "Probably no", Biden said.

Local lawmakers react to Sioux City Planned Parenthood closure
Iowa Republicans have long-sought to defund Planned Parenthood as well as promote legislation restricting abortions. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland will close in Sioux City and three other Iowa locations at the end of June.

Speaking in the SALT conference on Thursday, Biden said that he would donate his $200,000 speaking fee to charity.

But Mr Biden said he did not regret the time he was able to spend with his son before he died.

Biden would be almost 78 years old in 2020. For her part, Clinton has blamed former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, among others, for her defeat.

Biden even indicated that he was somewhat hesitant to join the Obama campaign as the running mate, initially turning the job down, CNN notes.
