Joe and Jill Biden sat down with 60 Minutes in the aftermath of his decision not to seek the Oval Office, and CBS News has released a preview in which the vice president discusses the moment of decision. "I came home and Hunter, our son was upstairs, with mom, with Jill. And I walked in and I said, 'You know, I just don't think there's time.' I've just decided. 'I don't think we can run the kind of campaign we have to run to be able to win.' ... I remember Jill just got up off the couch, gave me a big hug, and said, 'I think you're right.'" Asked whether she was relieved by the decision, Jill Biden says that she "was disappointed. I believed he would have been the best president." The clip is in the gallery. (More Joe Biden stories.)
