Hillary Clinton felt compelled to run for president despite lacking a clear campaign vision, Vice President Joe Biden argued in an interview published Thursday.
“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden told the Los Angeles Times’ Mike Memoli. “And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.”
Biden said Clinton likely felt obliged to run for president and that the historic nature of her bid weighed on her decision-making.
“She thought she had no choice but to run. That, as the first woman who had an opportunity to win the presidency, I think it was a real burden on her,” Biden said.
Thursday’s interview was the latest assessment from the Obama administration about why Democrats fared so poorly in this year’s vote. Biden, along with President Barack Obama, have argued their party didn’t pay enough attention to working-class voters outside large urban centers.
Biden — who said in the interview he, like Obama, was planning to remain living part-time in Washington after January — said voters were looking for a candidate who could connect to their struggles.
Whatever reason Hillary gave for her decision to run, I could care less !!!! And the reason she LOST was absolutely exhilarating as hell !!!!!!!! She just did not "Cut the Mustard" !!!!!! The PEOPLE just did not TRUST OR LIKE HER !!!!! It's as plain as that !!!!! She now represents the entire female population of the DNC and the FEMDEMS still don't understand how ridiculous they appear, by voting Nancy Pelosi in as Democratic minority Leader of the house !!!! They must be NUTS !!!!!! But I couldn't wish them any more misery than they will already have, with her in charge !!! A Political Suicide wish....to be sure !!!!! They are FINISHED as a PARTY !!!!!
BINGO...you got that right!
She felt is would be handed to her. Guess what the PEOPLE had other plans and thank GOD they did.
Hmmmmph...why do either of them...king o OR crazy joe need to stay in DC?????? What are they spying on?????
This reminds one of the interview of Ted Kennedy back in 1979. He was asked directly why he wanted to be President. He just froze for about 3-5 seconds, and then gave a rambling answer that didn't really have anything to do about his supposed desire to be Prez.

VP Biden has nailed it right on. She forgot about the people.
The SOONER we forget about "BITCH of BENGHAZI" the BETTER !!!!!
Those who VOTED for her and won the "Popular" vote............"Sorry 'bout that " but that's the way the system works !!!!!
If the situation was reversed you would be"ALL FOR" the system as it is !!!!!
So "TOUGH NOOGEY" !!!!!! WE WON....YOU LOST !!!! Get used to the idea !!!!!!!!
People keep calling it the 'popular' vote, but it's actually the California vote. That is where most of her popularity is.
Whatever??? Whatever is a liberal slang word. Understanding the popular vote is way more important than a 'whatever'. The California vote demonstrates why the so called 'popular' vote is dangerous to the Republic.
