Joe Biden Is Leaning Toward a 2016 Run

Vice President Joe Biden, who has long been considering a presidential bid, is increasingly leaning toward entering the race if it is still possible he can knit together a competitive campaign at this late date, people familiar with the matter said.

Mr. Biden still could opt to sit out the 2016 race, and he is weighing multiple political, financial and family considerations before making a final decision. But conversations about the possibility were a prominent feature of an August stay in South Carolina and his home in Delaware last week, these people said. A surprise weekend trip to Washington to meet with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), a darling of the party’s liberal wing, represented a pivot from potential to likely candidate, one Biden supporter said.

“The vice president has not made a decision about his political future,” Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff said. “Anyone speculating that he has made a decision is wrong.”

    Biden is dislutional if he thinks he even has a chance.
    I will say this one positive thing about him. YEARS and YEARS ago, he wrote a law that “Domestic Violence is a Hate Crime.”
    After that? I haven’t seen anything positive since!

      It’s not really about Biden. His run is for the cover of Shillarys destruction story. Their trying to take shillary off the headlines. We know the process. Hang some shinny object ls out in mid air ,take away the headlines . Misdirected ,mislead,lie obfuscate, divert ,deflect.Never let a good Crisis go to waste.

    I seem to recall one of the arguments against Impeaching Obama was that then Joe Biden would be Pres. Hummm, how is that argument holding up against this??? I read in another string, someone say he’s (Obama) only got 16 months left, suck it up, it’s too late to impeach him. It is not to late and it is long past due!!!! DO IT NOW!!!!

      Well it never was a true thought. What it was in reality : Was a quick cover story for the cowardice clowns in the GOP. Everyone knows full well, Just who they were. Yes the freaking RINO ,LIBERAL MODERATE RE-PUKE’s . Who desired to keep Obama in office, as a shield ,to use as a deflection from their cowardice in action. For they did not desire to cut gov. Spending they did not desire to repeal old blow hard no care health care. And yes they were the ones who Promised to keep the campaign promises of cutting spending ,repealing Obama no care, and to end Obama’s amnesty actions ,hey aren’t you who supported those liars feeling betrayed.
