AmericanPossibilities.org will go live at 9 a.m. Thursday, and Greg Schultz -- who was a senior adviser to Biden when he was vice president -- will serve as the PAC's executive director.

In a May 2016 interview with ABC News' "Good Morning America," Biden said he would have."
"I planned on running," Biden said at the time. "It's an awful thing to say...I think I would have been the best president, but it was the right thing, not just for my family, for me."
