Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday said it's possible he could run for president in 2020.

"I honest to God haven't made up my mind about that", said Biden, who is promoting his memoir on Beau Biden, who died in 2015 from brain cancer.

For now, Biden, 74, wants to focus on Democrats' winning the off-year elections, he said, as well as his new book, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and objective", a memoir about the last year of son Beau Biden's life before he succumbed to brain cancer. "I've been around too long", Biden said on NBC News' "Today" show.

The former USA senator added, "But who knows what the situation is going to be a year and a half from now". "I'm not doing anything to run", he said.

He was asked about former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile's book, which says she considered replacing Clinton with Biden because of health concerns. After being diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013, medical complications forced Beau Biden to step down from his role as the Attorney General of DE in January 2015, but, without his income, Beau's family were put in a hard financial situation. His newly released book focuses on their relationship and dealing with his death. It also expands on his decision not to seek the 2016 Democratic nomination.
