U.S. Vice President Biden announces his he will not seek the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination during an appearance in the Rose Garden of the White House in WashingtonBy Jeff Mason and John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he would not run for president in 2016, ending months of indecision and removing one of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s biggest potential obstacles to the party’s nomination.
