Speaking to a packed ballroom at the Bellagio conference center on the Las Vegas Strip, the former vice president, who himself declined to run for president, said he believes Clinton was not the "correct" candidate, but he was.

"I never thought she was a great candidate".

Despite this declaration, Biden assured his audience that "Hillary would have been a really good president".

While all of those decisions are now in the past, Democrats have been speculating on Biden's future, wondering whether the former vice president would run to challenge Trump in the 2020 race.

Biden had considered running for the Democratic nomination against Clinton and Bernie Sanders in 2016, but decided against it following the death of his son, Beau, in 2015. It must have been hellish for Biden to spend 8 years as the second banana, to see him cut a deal with Hillary leaving Crazy Uncle Joe to ride the Amtrak back to the train station named after him.

The former vice president offered commentary on President Barack Obama's two terms in office that also appeared to serve as an undercover critique of the current administration.

Of course, Biden isn't saying anything that most every election analyst already hasn't.

"I think I could have won", Biden said in March speech at Colgate University.

That's not a far cry from what Biden said on Thursday night. This is America. We all walk around like, 'Oh my God. "It is impossible. The public is sick of it". "But I thought I could have won", he said, The Hill reported at the time.

In the aftermath of the 2016 election, Joe Biden isn't done reflecting on what went wrong.

Biden even indicated that he was somewhat hesitant to join the Obama campaign as the running mate, initially turning the job down, CNN notes.

He said his priority for now was to focus on his family and concentrate on a few personal financial matters before deciding whether to run for president.
