Biden For President? Allies Mulling Clinton Challenge

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden’s associates have resumed discussions about a 2016 presidential run after largely shelving such deliberations while his son was sick and dying earlier this year. But Biden has yet to tell his staff whether he will run or personally ask them to do any planning for a potential campaign, according to several people close to the vice president.

Recent conversations between Biden’s associates and Democratic donors and operatives have led to speculation that Biden will challenge front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton for the party’s nomination, and individuals close to Biden have started looking into the options that might be available to him if he were to run, such as potential staff in Iowa and the filing deadlines for entering the Democratic field.

But the people close to the vice president say his launching a White House run remains uncertain. Biden is expected to make a final decision as soon as early September, according to those familiar with his plans.

No surprise Uncle Joe would run, the ultimate bitch-slap to Hillary by Obama. Now the justice department can slowly turn up the heat on Hillary's email antics -- not too hot mind you, just warm enough to make future donors really uncomfortable.

Wow the democrats don't have a lot to offer so far. Lets see;
A criminal, a socialist and now a baffoon. Still won't matter to a majority of Democrats as long as it has a D by the name.

Biden's a buffoon 4:51. This is not debatable unless your own standards are very very very low. Look at the Middle East as ONE example and there are many many many more. It's on fire due to the actions of this admin. Biden more than anyone, as a former ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, should have known better than to overthrown the governments of Mubarak and Gaddafi. Both were instrumental in keeping the terrorists under control.

"Biden is no buffoon 4:34". Sorry pal, some things are beyond argument. Biden is a one man stoogefest.

Gee 5:15, you're really smart considering the US did not overthrow either government. There is a big complicated world out there with big complicated problems that need to be taken on by adults with knowledge and intelligence. One day when you actually get out of your moms basement and venture past the end of your dads driveway you just might get a clue.

As long as someone has a d next to their name all entitlement kings and queens on the government dole will vote for them.

How anyone can defend this abysmal administration is beyond common sense. To the 5:39 troll, If you think Obama had nothing to do with the fall of Egypt and Libiya. You need to turn in your EBT card and get back in line.

Biden doesn't have a chance

IIRC, the last time Slow Joe ran he earned a grand total of about 8,000 votes total in the various primaries he was in before he dropped out.

No doubt a chunk of the live and dead electorate will pull a D lever no matter who is selected to run as head of the Democrat Socialist party. But you must admit their current candidates, and Slow Joe, represent Geritol in Action. Abysmal O'Malley looks like a youth movement in comparison. The Democrat Socialist party bosses must be pulling their hair out.

5:39 Don't even try to match wits with me you got it. I've forgotten more than you could ever hope to know about the Middle East and probably ever other topic.
The Obama admin was most certainly involved in the overthrown of the 2 mentioned governments and 2 more in the region. Does the Arab Spring ring a bell-Einstein? Arms shipments were increased and Obama admin supported US-NATO attacks in Libya using "humanitarian intervention" as an excuse. The Obama admin was instrumental in putting the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt.
My "moms basement"? You could only wish to live where I live but it won't happen in your wildest dreams. You've shown your ignorance with your comment. Keep in mind though.....I tip more in a year than you make. That much is fact.

Typical idiot response. 38 years senator for Delaware and what has he done?? Let's see. No GM plant,No Chrysler plant, no Dupont no MBA goes on and on. Then when he runs for VP he's the scrappy kid from scranton. Yeah he is most certainly a BAFFOON.

4:51 Assuming you are not a troll, YOU are the BAFFOON. If Biden is your choice that pretty much sums it all up.

Please run Joe, it would be so entertaining.

Hit a nerve 11:30? You are a fraud. One thing I've learned over time is that people that brag about being wealthy and that spend to impress usually are lying and don't have a pot to piss in. Most likely this is the case with 11:30. Oh and by his logic if one tips frequently or in excess that makes them a foreign relations expert with concentration in the Middle East. He is the definition of Buffoon.

I think that calling Biden a Buffoon is an insult to the average Buffoon.
