Vice President Biden announced Wednesday that he will not run for president, ending months of feverish speculation over his 2016 plans and likely settling the Democratic field.
Speaking in the Rose Garden alongside his wife Jill and President Obama, Biden said the window of opportunity to mount a viable campaign "has closed." He has been weighing a decision since summer, but cautioned all along that he and his family were grieving over the loss of his son Beau Biden -- and said Wednesday he knew that process could outlast the window for making a decision.
"Unfortunately I believe we're out of time, the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination," Biden said.

I think this is good news. If we can’t beat Hillary with her cancerous flaws, the Republic is lost anyway.
Joe’s just “Biden” his time. He’s already 72 years old and he turns 73 next month.
Who wants a 74 year old running the country at the beginning of his term?
Maybe in 2020!
Joe ain’ never gonna go, he is Obama’s sock puppet
Probably when Sanders said crime pays,followed by the media cheers, Joe knew it was over. And he knows that the FBI is only investigating in a very narrow scope, not even looking for 30,000 deleted emails.
And that he knows the Justice dept will not allow a investigation.
He Biden is a loser,but I am disappointed he is not running to muddy the waters
>She may just choose BIDEN as her running mate! Perhaps that was the deal that was struck.
I don’t think so, she’s going to go for a political tyro that benefits her but that she can control - Cory Booker or something.
That's how the fake opposition system works. The Democrats run things for 4-8 years, do a terrible job, so people vote for Republicans. Then after 4-8 years of Republicans doing more or less the same thing, voters think bringing Democrats back will somehow solve the original problem. And the cycle repeats itself.
So for ambitious politicians, as opposed to placeholders like Bob Dole or John Kerry, it's important to run at the end of the opposing party's "turn" at the wheel.
He knows its a Republican year.
Big ol’ plus 1 on that.
Lets just hope the Repukes don’t screw this up again and hand Hitlery the win.
An agreement was made.
Hillary takes VJ on her staff. (OMG did I just type that)
Obama buries the FBI report.
You already hit it with this one:
2) He thinks Hillary will get away without an indictment.
It just took Biden The Slow a bit longer to realize what nearly everyone already knows.
No Go Joe got the word from the Wicked Witch from the North and he is scared to death of her.
Julian Castro. That way they cover two demographics: young and hispanic.
Just a thought, a contrarian one...
What if the hammer will very soon drop on Hillary.
And...they are setting up Biden as the humbled man from gaffville.
Even a deputy sheriff.
He doesn’t want to debate Trump.
Trump is no wet noodle, like Paul Ryan was.
Alabama Congressman Mo Brook (R) wants to start impeachment proceedings against Hillary Clinton on day one, if she is elected president.
