At this point, no one in my family or I have made the judgment to run,” Biden said.
“Let’s wake up!” Biden said. “This is America. We all walk around like, ‘Oh my God. What are we going to do?’ C’mon man!”He adviced to Republicans and Democrats in Congress. “Argue like hell … but show some respect,” he said.
