Former Vice President Dick Cheney described former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s handling of her private email through a private server as “sloppy and unprofessional.”

“Maybe she was ignorant, but I find that hard to believe. She’s an intelligent woman. She spent a lot of time in the White House,” Mr. Cheneytold CNN. “I think she should have known better.”

Asked if he thinks the Russians and Chinese could have copies of the emails of Mrs. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner, Mr. Cheney said: “They’ve gotten my personnel records. How can they not have her emails?”

Mr. Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, are out this week with a new book called “Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America.”

Mr. Cheney also said he’d “love” to see Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. jump into the 2016 Democratic presidential nominating contest.

“He’s tried twice before. He obviously is interested. I think there’s a lot of support for him in the Democratic Party. I think it would stir things up. They’re short of candidates on their side. So I would urge Joe to have a shot at it,” Mr. Cheney said.

“There was this notion that Hillary sort of had inherited the nomination, that nobody could really challenge for the nomination. I think that’s now pretty well gone by the boards because of her problems … my bet is Joe’s going to run,” he said.
