Didn’t we just get done with all this crap? Can’t we have a moment’s peace? How about this: First Tuesday in November, just put the two candidates together in a room and decide it with a coin toss. Why not? Could we do any worse?
Oh well. WSJ:
Political allies of Vice President Joe Biden have concluded that he can win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination—even if Hillary Clinton enters the contest—and are considering steps he could take to prepare for a potential candidacy.
While Mr. Biden has made no decision about his future, people familiar with his thinking say, he hasn’t ruled out a bid for the White House. If he runs, that could set up a titanic battle between two of the party’s most prominent figures.
One step under discussion by Biden backers is to form a political action committee he would use to funnel money to other Democratic candidates, which could build goodwill for a possible White House bid, people familiar with the talks said…
“He’s the vice president of the United States of America! When you’re the sitting vice president and you’re running against anybody, you still have a chance,” said one person close to Mr. Biden.
True. But then again… he’s Joe Biden.
So, how do you like your chances of ever, ever, ever being elected President of the United States, Mr. Biden?
