Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday he would have run for president, but he decided that he "couldn't win" and that he would never again seek political office.

In a joint interview with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, on CBS' "60 Minutes," the vice president said helping his family grieve over the death in May of his son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, took precedence over a presidential campaign.

"I've said from the beginning that I don't know whether our ability to deal with the loss of Beau would reach a point where we could do that before time ran out," he said. "And there was nothing we could control."

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."

[Bloggers note: Of course Biden couldn't win - He is a clone of Hillary Clinton without the brashness, visibility or speaking ability. And, the Democratic Party machine would have had him assassinated for interering with their plan to elect Hillary - He would have diluted the vote!]
