No, Joe.

[If you can't view the embedded tweet, it is a tweet authored by me linking to a New York Times article with the headline "Biden Sees Himself as Democrats' Best Hope in 2020" and the subhead: "Mr. Biden has indicated to associates that he is leaning toward running for president in 2020, setting up a primary race clash." I have further quoted the article: "In one of his calls over the holidays, Mr. Biden repeated a variation of a line he has used publicly: 'If you can persuade me there is somebody better who can win, I'm happy not to do it,' he said." And then I followed that with a rolling-eyes emoji.]

This bullshit line being used by both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders about how they'll run only if they're the best men to defeat Donald Trump is getting real old real fast.

It's voracious egotism wrapped in words meant to sound like humility. And it's extremely unappealing.
