Joe Biden predicts he will run for president in 2020, adds that he is not yet 'committed'

Vice President Joe Biden told a small group of reporters Monday that he may run for president in 2020.

"Yeah, I am. I am going to run in 2020," Biden said when asked if he would run for office again. When asked what role he would seek, the 74-year-old vice president responded: "For president. And also, you know so, what the hell man, anyway."

The vice president said, however, he wasn't making a commitment to run when reporters asked if he was kidding.

"I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening," he said.

Biden would be 77 years old on Election Day in 2020.

In October 2015, Biden formally announced that he would not pursue a presidential campaign in 2016. He said that the window had closed on "mounting a realistic campaign for president." Instead, the vice president hit the trail for Hillary Clinton.
