This is supposed to get me to support him?

Why does Biden think that pledging to only serve for one term as president is a plus for his candidacy? Sure, it might reassure some people who are worried about his age (although not me). I guess only four years of the risks that come with an older president is better than eight. But the advantages of an incumbent president running for reelection are huge. Voluntarily giving that up for a small concession to the age issue, that won't fully reassure anyone who is concerned about the age issue, is just nuts.
