The vice president would not speculate on what led to Palin's move. "I didn’t hear her press conference," Biden told the New York Times. "All I was told was that she said and related to it was a personal decision a family decision and I take her at her word."
"In my experience that’s how 95 percent of decisions by public officials in both parties are made when they’re this important to their careers," Biden said.
