BREAKING: Joe Biden Will Not Run For President

In a speech to the nation, Vice President Joe Biden announced that he is not running for President in 2016.

Saying that he has “run out of time” to successfully mount a campaign for the Democratic nomination, Biden proceeded to give something akin to a stump speech.

Flanked in the White House Rose Garden by President Barack Obama, Biden said that he believed that the United States needed a “moonshot” type effort to cure cancer and fight against human suffering.

“If I could be anything, I would have wanted to be the president who ended cancer, because it’s possible,” Biden said.

The Vice President’s son Beau died in May of brain cancer at the age of 46.

Biden has been in national political life since he was elected to the Senate at 29 years of age.
