Breaking News: Joe Biden not running for President

Joe Biden ended months of intense speculation about his political future on Wednesday by announcing he wouldn't seek the presidency, abandoning a dream he's harbored for decades and putting Hillary Clinton in a stronger position to capture the Democratic nomination. With President Barack Obama at his side in the White House Rose Garden, Biden said the window for a presidential campaign "has closed." His decision means that barring unexpected developments, Biden's long political career, which includes nearly 40 years in the Senate and two terms as vice president, will end along with the Obama administration on January 20, 2017.
