    VP Joe Biden says he will not run for president in 2016

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden will not run for president in 2016, he said Wednesday, ending a months-long flirtation with a third White House campaign and setting him on a glide path toward the end of his decades-long political career.

    Biden's decision finalizes the Democratic field of White House candidates and bolsters Hillary Rodham Clinton's standing as the front-runner by sparing her a challenge from the popular vice president.

    In an extraordinary appearance in the White House Rose Garden, Biden said he always knew that the window for a viable campaign might close before he could determine whether his family was emotionally prepared for another campaign so soon after the death of his son Beau in May. Biden said his family was prepared to back him, but that he nonetheless would not be a candidate.

    "Unfortunately, I believe we're out of time," he said, flanked by President Barack Obama and Biden's wife, Jill.

        Most likely, he got an offer from the Clintons, and, or, Soros that he couldn't refuse.

              The words "smart" and "Biden" should never be used in the same sentence...
