While Obama and Biden have what aides describe as an “exceptionally close” friendship, they actually talk by phone only sporadically and meet face-to-face even less frequently

Even as some of the members of the Obama administration have wondered about the wisdom of a Biden candidacy, Obama has been reluctant to criticize his former vice president in his private conversations.

Democratic presidential hopeful in recent months, but his discussions with Biden were far more personal in nature, people familiar with the conversations say, because Biden knows his family more intimately. But Obama was less of a sounding board for a potential candidacy for Biden than he was for some other candidates.

In fact, Obama was largely kept apprised of Biden’s plans through their respective aides, especially because their record from eight years in The White House will suddenly become a front-and-center in the Democratic primary. And Obama made a remarkable statement issued from his office on Thursday that he was highly of Biden.

“President Obama has long said that selecting Joe Biden as his running mate in 2008 was one of the best decisions he ever made, “Katie Hill, and Obama spokeswoman,” said. “He relied on the Vice President’s knowledge, insight, and judgment throughout both campaigns and the entire presidency. The two have a special bond over the last 10 years and remain close today.” their very nature, complicated.

By all accounts, Obama and Biden have a father stronger than any recent White House partnership, considering the post-presidency tensions between George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and the turmoil between Bill Clinton and Al Gore in their final term. Instead, he focuses on the president currently in the Oval Office.

“If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are and I cannot stand at and watch that happen, “Biden said.” The core values ​​of this nation, our standing in the world, our very democracy, everything that has made America America’s stake. “
