Vice President Biden announced Wednesday afternoon he had decided not to seek the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, ending months of speculation that he might roil the party’s race.

“I have concluded that it has closed,” he said of the window to make another White House bid, speaking in a hastily called Rose Garden appearance with his wife, Jill Biden, and President Obama by his side.

“Beau is our inspiration,” the vice president said of his eldest son, who died earlier this year of brain cancer. “Unfortunately, I believe we are out of time — the time necessary to mount a campaign for the nomination.”

Biden pointed to the impact of the grieving process on his presidential plans. “I know from previous experience that there’s no timetable for this process,” he said. “The process doesn’t respect or much care about things like filing deadlines or debates and primaries and caucuses.”
