Joe Biden has a reputation for saying what's on his mind, and on Thursday night, he reportedly didn't hold back at all about former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate," Biden reportedly told an audience of hedge fund managers at the annual SALT conference in Las Vegas.

"No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for that moment in the nation's history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country," Biden continued, according to TheStreet's Ronald Orol.

Despite his criticism of candidate Clinton, Biden did add that he thought Hillary would have been "a really good president."

Biden had considered running for the Democratic nomination against Clinton and Bernie Sanders in 2016, but decided against it after the death of his son, Beau, in 2015. Biden has repeatedly said his emphasis right now is on his family being "put back together," but on Thursday left the door open about a possible run in 2020.

"If I get those things done, and I'm healthy and viable, and it looks like I'm the best man to do it, I may very well do it," Biden said. "But my family comes first."

"Could I? Yes," Biden continued. "Would I? Probably not."

This isn't the first time Biden has spoken with regret about the 2016 election. Back in March, Biden told students at Colgate University in New York that he thought he could have won the election against…

    A remarkably complete fossil of a young child suggests that key elements of the human spinal structure were already in place in an ancient human relative 3.3 million years ago. The child, about three years old, likely died suddenly and quickly drifted into a body of water, where she was covered in sediment that eventually hardened to sandstone, Zeray Alemseged of the University of Chicago tells The Two-Way. His team found the well-preserved fossil in 2000 in Dikika, Ethiopia, and for years…
  16. How The Biggest Animal On Earth Got So Big

    Whales are the largest animals on the planet, but they haven't always been giants. Fossil records show that ancient whales were much smaller than the currently living behemoths. So when did whales get so big, and how? A new study suggests it might be due to changes in climate that affected the food that some whales eat: krill and small fish. Instead of being spread throughout the ocean, lots of krill started being packed into a small area. Bigger whales were simply more efficient at eating…
