This is Chris Wallace. In the wake of Joe Biden taking himself out of the race for President, I interviewed the Vice President at his official residence. You can see the full interview on Fox News Sunday, but here is an excerpt.
Wallace: Mr. Vice President, thank you for this rare interview with Fox News Sunday.
Biden: Now that I’m not running, I can appear on Fox. Let the cabinet members do the low-ratings shows on MSNBC. Besides, your audience needs to know that I supported the raid to kill bin Laden.
Wallace: But three years ago, if I may, Mr. Vice President, I’m reading directly from a New York Times account of your remarks at a Democratic congressional retreat, you recounted your advice to President Obama as, quote, “Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go.”
Biden: You’re not telling the whole story, Chris. On Meet the Press a few months later, I said the full context, that I added, “Follow your instincts, Mr. President.” Of course, I knew his instincts. I knew he would do the raid. I’m not a Dick Cheney, I wanted him to feel that he made this decision all on his own.
Wallace: Are you jealous?
