Former Vice President Joe Biden is considering a 2020 run for the Oval Office, given his latest proclamation while on a book tour. He’s arguing he is “the most qualified” to be president, and that he and his family will make a decision within the next two months on whether or not to make a final bid. We’ll give kudos: he did admit that he’s a “gaffe machine”…but that he’s still better than a liar.

Former Vice President Joe Biden says there’s no one better qualified in the nation to be president, but admitted at the same time he’s a “gaffe machine.”
“I’ll be as straight with you as I can. I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president,” Biden said Monday during a book tour stop in Missoula, Montana, according to CNN.
“No one should run for the job unless they believe that they would be qualified doing the job. I’ve been doing this my whole adult life, and the issues that are the most consequential relating to the plight of the middle class and our foreign policy are things that I have — even my critics would acknowledge, I may not be right but I know a great deal about it,” he said.
The moderator of the event, Bruce Feiler, said Biden would have a variety of potential liabilities if he choose to run, including being too old, being out of touch with the #MeToo era and being a “gaffe machine.”
