Dick Cheney on Potential Biden Presidential Run: ‘Go For It, Joe’

Dick CheneyIn an interview with CNN set to air Tuesday night, former Vice President Dick Cheney said he’d love it if his successor Joe Biden decided to enter the Democratic presidential race.

“I’d love to see Joe get in the race,” said Cheney in a preview that aired Monday on CNN’s New Day and CNN Newsroom.

“Go for it Joe,” he said. “He’s tried twice before, he obviously is interested. I think there’s a lot of support for him in the Democratic Party. I think it would stir things up. They’re short candidates on their side.”

Cheney was also very critical of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her “sloppy and unprofessional” handling of classified data on her private emails. “She does have some opposition now, and my bet is Joe’s going to run.”
