It turns out that like many Americans, Vice President Joe Biden wasn’t impressed with Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate.

Biden knocks Clinton: Not a ‘great’ candidate
Former Vice President Joe Biden took a swipe at Hillary Clinton on Thursday, saying upon further reflection she wasn’t a “great candidate” for president.
The former VP, who continued to leave the door open just a crack to a possible 2020 run, spoke at a hedge-fund manager conference in Las Vegas.
According to Fox Business Network, Biden addressed the Democratic presidential nominee’s surprise November defeat to President Trump in blunt terms.
“I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” he said, adding:
“No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country.”
Biden also may have been publicly musing about his own plans. He reportedly said he’s focusing on his family right now, but if it looks like he’s the best person to run, “I may very well do it.”
Will liberal media types call Biden a sexist for criticizing Hillary? Of course not. He gets a pass on this sort of thing because he’s a Democrat.
