Vice President Joe Biden knows how to keep a crowd on the edge of their seats. After wrapping a Senate session Monday, Biden was asked if he would run for office.

"Yeah, I am. I am going to run in 2020," Biden said. When asked what office he would seek, the 74-year-old vice president responded: "For president. And also, you know, so, what the hell, man, anyway," CNBC reports.


Although it sounded as if Biden was joking, he added that ruling him out as a candidate for president would be a mistake.

"I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening," he said.

CNBC notes that if Biden were to run for office, he would be 77 years old on Election Day in 2020.

Biden was considered a front-runner in 2015, but he chose not to run for office, noting that the window had closed for him to make a realistic push for the presidency.
