  • Biden: I Wouldn't Have Replaced Hillary [VIDEO]

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he is uncertain about a run for president in 2020, but indicated he's looking for fresh blood to lead the Democratic Party back to the White House.

Biden tells NBC's "Today" show he had decided not to run past year, and says, "I would have never done that".

Feldman also said Biden would likely face plenty of opposition from other Democratic candidates who are ready and willing to take on Donald Trump in 2020.

"No, no, I'm not closing the door", Biden replied. After being diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013, medical complications forced Beau Biden to step down from his role as the Attorney General of DE in January 2015, but, without his income, Beau's family were put in a hard financial situation. The painful subject forms the story of his new memoir, 'Promise Me, Dad, ' set for release this week.

Biden wrote about that struggle and his political decisions in his book "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and objective", which will be released this week. "I don't regret the decision I made because it's the right decision for my family", he said.

On Sunday, an interview between Biden and Oprah Winfrey in which Biden admitted that he regrets never being President - believing that he had a lot of potential and so many things he wanted to achieve.

Kasich, who has been an outspoken opponent of Trump's since he challenged him for the Republican nomination in 2016, declined to address his own 2020 plans.

Although "Barack was the first person outside [Biden's] family to know about Beau's illness", Biden writes that he had kept the details of his son's declining health and his family's financial crisis under wraps, not even telling President Obama about "the true desperation" of the situation. Former second lady Jill Biden said in June that her husband "is not going away". "I'm not doing anything to run", he said.
