Only if you're into self punishment.
A Raspberry Pi would be like editing video on a really good Pentium III, or really crappy Pentium 4 Celeron.
Essentially the way we did things about 20 years ago.
Some educators use the Raspberry Pi in their classrooms as it is inexpensive and it's used as a learning tool to help them understand a bit of electronics and PC programming. I wouldn't try to edit with it, but you could. It also makes a decent economy media player. Cost is still less than $50US.
The RPi has hardware decoding for many video and audio codecs, and hardware encoding for at least h.264. Though whether or not any editor supports them I don't know. The CPU is pretty wimpy though it may be fine with standard definition video. I know ffmpeg supports hardware h.264 encoding on the RPi. The few examples I've seen of h.264 encoding on the RPi weren't very good. But I don't know if that was because of the encoder or user error.
