Vice President Joseph R. Biden said during a Thursday evening exchange with Ireland’s Taoiseach Enda Kenny: I can’t run for the presidency. My golf game might suffer.

He was captured by CNN making the remarks to the Irish equivalent of a prime minister during an American Ireland Fund Gala event in Washington. The Irish leader invited Mr. Biden to Ireland and to bring his “golf sticks” to take part in a round or two, CNN said.

Mr. Biden’s reply: “If you want to keep your handicap in golf, don’t run for president. So I expect strokes.”

CNN reported that it wasn’t clear if Mr. Biden was simply making a joke — or sending a stronger message about his 2016 White House intentions. If he does run for the presidency, it’ll be his third try, after failures in 1988 and 2008.
