Biden Opens Up About Reluctancy To Join Obama In 2008

via Forbes Breaking News

President Joe Biden revealed in an interview that he was initially hesitant to join Barack Obama’s Democratic ticket in 2008, but his mother convinced him to serve.

Despite his reluctance, Biden eventually agreed to become Obama’s vice president, a decision that made history by electing America’s first black president.

“I called her, and I said, ‘The president asked me to consider being vice president. I don’t want to do that.’ I said, ‘Barack, I don’t wanna be vice president.’ Finally, he said, ‘Well, d—, it’s only you,’” Biden said. (Trending: Prominent LGBTQ Activist Arrested Over Disturbing Charges)

Obama encouraged him to “Go home and talk it over to your family.”

“It was when he became the de facto nominee in August. So I go home, sit everybody down.”

“Everybody wants me to do it. I didn’t want to do it,” Biden added.

Biden’s mother said, “Let me get this straight, honey. The first black man has a chance to be president, he says he needs you, and you told him no?”

Biden served as vice president from 2009 to 2017 before being elected as president in 2020, with Obama endorsing him in the 2020 and 2024 campaigns.
