Dr. Jill Biden says that “America missed an opportunity” to elect her husband Joe president.

In an interview on NBC’s “Today” airing on Friday, the vice president’s wife said, “I think he has the character, I think that he’s a convener. I think that one of his strengths is compromise.”

“And so I feel, you know, maybe America missed an opportunity. I don’t know. It just wasn’t the right time,” Dr. Biden said.

The second lady insisted, “I really do feel that Joe would’ve made a great president.”

The vice president announced he was not running for president in October 2015. Biden’s son Beau, the former Delaware attorney general, died after a battle with brain cancer.
