Vice President Joe Biden just announced that he will not be running for President of the United State of America.

During his announcement, Biden said that although he is not running for president, he will continue to be vocal about the policies believes in.

“Unfortunately, I believe we’re out of time, the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination,” Biden said. “While I will not be a candidate, I will not be silent. This party, our nation, will be making a tragic mistake if we walk away or attempt to undo the Obama legacy.”

Biden’s announcement about whether or not he will run has been the most anticipated part of the Democratic race, which is absolutely pathetic.

Now that this is settled, we can finally concentrate on the race at hand. More importantly, we can finally start seeing some damn polls that are actually accurate, rather than having Biden’s presence skew the results.
