Joe Biden was Vice President for eight years. If he wanted to continue Obama’s legacy why didn’t he run in 2016?

    Because his son had just died.

    He was very depressed when his son Beau died of cancer and he didn't think he could beat Hillary

    His son died of a brain tumor, at that time, and he had  the common decency to  NOT put his family thru the grinder of an election, at that sensitive time. 

    He , in fact,  stepped away, from what would have been his  BEST chance. ----for the sake of his family. 

    For that *alone*..........he gets my vote this time. 

    A man of HONOR and integrity........who put his family before his own vanity and political ambition. 

    That earns nothing but respect from me.

    His son died after a lingering illness. Mr. Biden was still grieving.
