Former vice president Joe Biden speaking to voters in Iowa acknowledges his age and says that any potential vice presidential candidate he selects must be able to assume the presidency immediately.
Joe Biden: I can think of at least eight women, at least four or five people of color that I think are totally qualified to be vice president of the United States but for me, it has to be demonstrated that, whomever I pick, is two things.
One, is capable of immediately being president because I’m an old guy, right? No no, serious. Look, I thank God and I workout, no serious, I workout every morning, I’m in good shape, knock on wood as my mother would say.
