Transcript for Will Joe Biden Jump Into the Presidential Race?
And Cecilia and Jon Karl are here now, welcome to the both of you. Jon, I want to go back to Joe Biden. I don't think we've ever seen an interview so emotional, so raw, from someone contemplating a run for president. What does that tell you when you look at that interview? Well, what it tells you is that, nobody knows what Joe Biden is going to do. But those close to Joe Biden say a mistake to watch that interview and to think that he's not going to run. Biden and his closest advisers see a clear path to running. They think he can win, they are seriously looking at this. He has not made his mind up. He's anguishing through this decision in a very public way. And, Cecilia, you have been on the campaign trial with Hillary Clinton. This interview comes the same week where you say Hillary Clinton is trying to be more authentic, trying to be softer, we saw that in the interview with David Muir. It also comes as some democrats are looking for a plan B. Can she compete in authenticity against what we saw with Joe Biden? Well, she's certainly trying. The biggest threat to this may be Hillary Clinton herself. Right? We're seeing the shift in Hillary Clinton right now. You saw her dancing on "Ellen" we heard talking about her mother more.

I mean, this is his best chance in his life to be elected president. He can pull this off, you know, but I got to tell you, when he was up in New York for 9/11, he went to rescue 1 firehouse, somebody mentioned beau and he said, it's been 103 days since he's died, he's literally counting the days since his son died. Remarkable. Cecilia, if he gets in, what does Hillary Clinton campaign do? Well, you know, they have expecting this. The reality is, you're seeing this shift now. They're clearly nervous. Biden, if he does run, has a huge road ahead of him. Hillary Clinton already has 78 people in Iowa alone. Biden just two in south Carolina. If Biden gets in tomorrow, it is going to be a tough race. Let alone October 13th before the democratic debate. Love him, sir. Oh, geez, I -- Reporter: And that grief
