Joe Biden Makes His Boldest Claim Yet About Hillary Clinton's 2016 Candidacy

Biden, who will be 77 when the next presidential election happens, made the comments last night at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, CNN reports.

Let it be known that Joe Biden doesn't plan on letting President Trump get away with all the juicy soundbites this year.

But Biden didn't point to any specific moment.

Clinton was also stymied by a protracted FBI investigation into her use of a private email server, which gave Trump and his supporters easy rhetorical ammunition, right up to Election Day. "I thought I was a great candidate", Biden remarked.

"Although it would have been a very hard primary, I think I could have won", Biden continued.

This was partly prompted by his son Beau's brain cancer diagnosis and subsequent death, aged 46, in January 2015.

Biden admitted that the Obama administration "made mistakes" and that he and Obama would often disagree on tactical issues, even having "shouting matches" at times.

"The former vice president is the ideal speaker to mark the momentum and excitement surrounding the opening of the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center", said UNMC Chancellor Jeffrey Gold.

"Hillary would have been a really good president", he added. "I thought I was the correct candidate". I thought I could beat anybody that ran.

My son was dying, and he died. "Probably not", he said.

When asked about running for president in 2020, Biden replied, "Could I? Yes".
