reached that point. unfortunately i believe reear out of time. the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. but while i will not be a cadged date, i will not be silent. i intend to speak out clearly and forcefully to influence as much as i can where we stand as a party and where we need to go as a nation. >> we intend to spend the next 15 monthing fighting for what we have always cared about, what may family has always cared about, with every ounce of -- ounce of our being. i am absolutely certain we are fully capable of accomplishing extraordinary things. >> it is a big story. we have team coverage of the decision of the reaction and we begin with beth germano who is live in the satellite center. beth? >> reporter: the question of whether joe biden would run had consumed democrat force the last few months and now many see a much clearer path for hillary clinton.
hunger for a joe biden candidacy, but there were many voters still hoping he would enter the race. >> i like joe biden a lot. i thought it would be great if he ran and gave the democrats more choice and gave the country a little more choice. >> reporter: what do you think biden would have brought to the campaign? >> oh, fun. authenticity. >> reporter: more so than hillary? >> at least the perception. >> reporter: until the first democratic debate, the perception in the party was that hillary clinton would not solidify her front runner status creating an opening for the vice president, and a strong debate performance seemed to change that. >> i think that there are enough candidates in the ring already that you don't need another one. >> reporter: many top donors and democratic strategists are already in the clinton camp, and the fear is there would be a messy, grueling primary that would only fracture the democrats. were you concerned that he was going to run and cut into her support? >> a little bit, yeah.
hillary's, so i'd fear that. >> reporter: leaving hillary clinton now to breathe a sigh of relief. >> and i think more people would vote forbidden than hillary. because of his record. it is a cleaner record. >> so you think he would have jeopardized her candidacy? >> i think so, yeah. definitely. >> reporter: and while joe biden said he would remin a presence, he urged the democratic candidates to defend and run on the record of the obama administration. live in the satellite seasht. i'm beth germano, wbz news. paula? >> thank you. and a new poll just released today showed how much work the vice president had ahead of him if he had entered the race. he finished a distant third in the poll of democrats in new hampshire. so let's bring in our political analyst jon keller now to talk about this. and we know that the country watched as bel biden deliberated about this after the death of his son he was clearly grieving since the spring. how much did that factor into this?
>> anyone who has lost a loved one know house devastating that can be to an individual, to an entire family, and the situation was complicated by the fact that bowe biden reportedly urged his father to run on his death bed. now, i have interviewed joe bid an couple of times over the years and can testify to the fact that he is one of the warmest, most engaging politicians in the country. so i don't doubted for a second he agonized over these personal factors, but as biden made clear in his statement today, he and his family felt they were up to the campaign. what he didn't say was that the closed window of opportunity he referred to really involved the perception that the clinton campaign was fomenterring and might be in tough enough shape to create a demand for a biden candidacy. but after last week's debate coming on top of improving clinton poll numbers, that perception is gone, and along with it any serious rachial for a biden run. as those poll numbers i think reflected, that was a come down
new hampshire polling. >> sure. and certainly nor people who support him, a lot to ask of the biden family. >> yes. difficult, running for president is no joke. it is very tacking emotionally and in other ways. >> jon keller, thank you so much. >> john, pulla, thank you. hillary clinton's daughter chelsea nothing but praise for joe biden and his long years of service to the nation. chelsea clinton was in boston today promoting her new children's book. chelsea praised biden for making a decision based on what is best for his family and she clearly supports her mother for president. >> i believe she is working on behah of families, women, mothers, children for longer than i have been alive. i think she really know what is the national government needs to do to support families across our country to be able to make the right choice force themselves and their children. >> tonight on the "cbs evening news" with scott pelly at 6:30, did the g.'s speech include potshots at hillary clinton? that and more in just auto bit. and a cheerleading

everything on the field. he sees the formations and routes and splits. and anything presnap that can help him get an idea of whether the ball is coming his way or going the other way. >> reporter: the bottom line? the pats have got to protect brady and this ever changing offensive line will need to be at their best. >> sate great front. and it is going to take a 60- minute effort. >> reporter: rex ryan leaving the jets actually took all of the hype out of this game, but it made new york better. talking to the players, the jets have more of a business- like approach and this will be the toughest game for them this season so far. at gillette stadium, wbz sports. thank you very much. be sure to catch "patriots' all somebody sees t." the behind-the-scenes stuff you cannot see anywhere else. and we'll have it all for you on sunday starting with the "patriots' game day." the pats and jets kick off at 1:00 here on wbz followed by "the fifth quarter post-game show" also here on wbz as well. and wbz is your home for thursday night football! tomorrow night the seahawks
