Joe Biden’s Clinton ‘diss’ wasn’t so bad

Headlines everywhere popped up Friday morning proclaiming that former Vice President Joe Biden had called out Hillary Clinton at a conference Thursday night.

Twitter certainly noticed.

But if you look a bit closer at what Biden said at the SALT conference in Las Vegas and include the context — not just the portion where he says, “I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” — it’s less of a diss and more of an analysis of the 2016 election.

While talking about how the death of his son stopped him from running against Trump, he talked about Clinton’s’ failed campaign and issues with her as a candidate. As outlets at the event reported, like CNN and Fox Business, Biden went on to say, “Hillary would have been a really good president.”

The part of the story that might have (some) Democrats excited: Biden didn’t exactly rule out a run for president in 2020.
