Joe Biden hasn’t ruled out a run for office after his tenure as vice president ends in January.
Speaking to ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Biden said he had no plans for staying in elected office ― but he couldn’t say for sure.
“I’ve learned a long time ago ― you don’t say anything for absolutely certain,” Biden said. “There’s that whole Satchel Paige phrase, you know, they asked Satchel Paige, he won a game on his 47th birthday as a pitcher. And they said, ‘Satch, what’s it like, 47 winning the big?’ He said, ‘Boys, that’s not how I look at age.’ He says, ‘How do you look at it?’ He said, ‘I look at it this way, how old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?’ I’m 44, so I’m ready to go.”
Biden is 73 and will turn 74 in November. But he also objectively loves being in the arena and is deeply invested in the political process ― now spearheading the so-called moonshot for a cure for cancer for this administration. So, we shall see.
