Joe Biden hasn't made up his mind about whether to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, but the former vice president is "not closing the door", he said on Monday. "But who knows what the situation is going to be a year and a half from now? I don't have any idea".
Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden speaks before presenting U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) the 2017 Liberty Medal at the Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S., October 16, 2017.

If he chooses to run in 2020, Biden will be 77 on Election Day.

"I've done it a long time", said Biden, who previously ran for president in 1988 and 2008, "and I'm just not sure it's the appropriate thing for me to do".
He does not regret sitting out the race "because it was the right decision for my family", Biden said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey Sunday.
