On Friday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Joe Biden not ruling out running for president in 2020. Watch the video below.

In an appearance on Thursday, the former vice president slammed Hillary Clinton as a candidate and Donald Trump as a president. Looking ahead to 2020, he reportedly said, “This fever has to break… I may very well do it.” So now on the ABC talk show, Joy Behar concluded, “Joe Biden sounds like he’s leaving the door open.”

But there’s concerns about his age, given that Biden would be 78 in 2020. Behar, however, countered by pointing out the advanced ages of John McCain, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and Bernie Sanders. “Guy Day Friday” guest co-host Mark Cuban thought Biden “would be great” politically, but expressed concern about his stamina.

“He goes down the middle. He can deal with Republicans. He can deal with Democrats. That’s his greatest strength. But age matters,” Cuban said, wondering “whether he’s really got it in him to really fight through those four years.” He and Paula Faris seemed to agree that Biden should’ve run in 2016.

Faris said, “I think there’s a lot of buyer’s remorse for a lot of people, and hindsight’s always 20/20. He probably knows having gone up against Donald Trump, and hearing that every day, he could’ve won… He’s got this magnetic personality. You’re drawn to him, whether or not you agree with his policy.”

And Sunny Hostin noted, “He also has experience. What happened to experience? When I heard The Rock is thinking about running for president…” The lawyer, of course, was referring to a conversation the panelists had about Dwayne Johnson on “The View” earlier this week. Cuban now pointed out, though, “No one’s ever fully qualified to be the president.” Check out the video below.
