Biden was going to run for presidency in 2016. Had Beau not become stricken by an illness, he absolutely would have ran, despite pressure for him to not pursue a run.Joe Biden told the story of his personal tragedy as a reason (excuse) for why he was considering running for President in 2016. Joe set that up as early as August 2015 via a story he told to the press in order to lay the foundation for this potential bid to become the Democratic Primary Nominee. The article I linked runs this process down quite clearly. I'm not entirely what point you're making?
We can at least have the decorum to not question the impact of his son's passing. The man lost his oldest son to brain cancer and led the charge for the Moonshot project. His decision to run was significantly impacted by his son's death.
Shit on Joe Biden for many things, literally, just google news his last week. But his passion for advancement in cancer treatment and his son's death, I mean, seriously?
