Vice President Joe Biden says he "would have been the best president" had he launched a successful campaign for the White House, but asserts he has no regrets about staying out of the race.

In an interview on "Good Morning America" that aired Wednesday morning, Biden said the death of his eldest son Beau, who died last May, changed his political course.

"No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that," he tells co-host Robin Roberts. "And, Beau was my soul. I just wasn't ready to be able to do that. But, so, my one regret is my Beau's not here. I don't have any other regrets."

"I planned on running," ha added. "This is awful to say, I would have been the best president."

Biden hasn't made an endorsement in the Democratic presidential primary, but tells Roberts, "I feel confident that Hillary will be the nominee, and I feel confident she'll be the next president."

Biden also predicts "the constant attacks from the Republican side" won't "wear well over the next several months."

Biden decided against a presidential run last October, saying he and his family were dealing with the grief over Beau's death; since then, he's spearheaded a "Cancer Moon Shot" initiative to accelerate the effort to improve treatments for cancer and possibly find a cure.

"It's kind of bittersweet," he said. "But this is — this allows me to pour all my energies into — doing something that — hopefully will — five years from now if — someone's diagnosed with what my Beau was diagnosed with, they — they live."
