Joe Biden apparently thinks Hillary Clinton had weaknesses as a candidate in her failed bid for president past year.

He qualified the statement by adding, "Hillary would have been a really good president".

Biden, who would be almost 78 years old next election, emphasized that right now his focus is on his family being "put back together" following the 2015 death of his son Beau to brain cancer. Statistics site 538 has Biden as the leader in the 2020 field in the list of politicians making public steps towards a potential 2020 run. "Would I? Probably not", according to CNN.

Biden also spoke of his decision not to run for president in the 2016 election.

For now, as he revealed on Thursday, Biden is focused on family and on fulfilling some financial obligations, including paying off his mortgage.

Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted on Thursday during the SALT conference in Las Vegas that he hadn't thought much of Hillary Clinton's candidacy.

"We're pleased that Joe Biden will join us on one of the most significant days in our medical center's history", Gold said. This is America. We all walk around like, 'Oh my God. Biden has said he will spend the rest of his life fighting to eradicate the disease. I thought I could beat anybody that ran.

Democrats and Republicans alike are attacking each others' motives rather than their arguments, Biden said.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump (L) jokes with retired Gen. Michael Flynn as they speak at a rally at Grand Junction Regional Airport on October 18, 2016 in Grand Junction, Colo.

He made no direct reference to Trump during his speech, for which he donated his $200,000 fee to charity.

But Biden praised Obama as "absolutely totally competent" and someone who took the job "extremely seriously".

President Obama went eight years "without a single scandal", Biden said to applause.
