The former Vice President, who decided not to stand in last year's election following the death of his son Beau, said he would have been a great candidate.

On May 18, the former vice president was interviewed at a hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, where he reportedly criticized Hillary Clinton's campaign.

In addition, Biden told the audience that he never thought Hillary Clinton "was a great candidate", which also received claps from the audience.

Biden called Obama "absolutely, totally competent" and said he took his job "extremely seriously", but acknowledged that the former president had made some mistakes.

Perhaps it could be done more delicately, but to pretend Biden is wrong about Clinton not being a great candidate is to bury your head in the sand.

"I think I could have won", Biden said in March speech at Colgate University.

Biden was asked when he became convinced that Clinton was the right person to run against then-candidate Donald Trump in the general election, according to CNN.

You can see why Biden and Obama were a flawless pair.

Despite his financial needs, Biden pledged to give the $200,000 speaking fee for appearing at SALT to charity. Accepting the position of vice president, though, was still not an easy choice, Biden admitted.
