Emotional Biden says not 'there' when asked about presidential run

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden speaks on stage at an event to discuss the minimum wage at the Javitz Convention Center in New YorkBy Jeff Mason NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in an emotional interview with comedian Stephen Colbert on Thursday, said he was not in a place to say he could devote his full self to running for president again. Biden told the host of CBS’ “The Late Show” that anyone running for the White House should be able to tell Americans that his or her whole heart, soul, energy, and passion were committed to the job. “I’d be lying if I said that I knew I was there,” Biden, whose son Beau died recently, said in the interview.
