Biden to Run?
Twenty-seven days after Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States, Vice President Joe Biden told reporters he would make his third bid for the highest office in the land four years from now.
"I'm going to run in 2020," Biden, 74, told a group of reporters at the Capitol Monday evening. "So, uh, what the hell, man."
When asked if he was serious or joking, the vice president paused for about four seconds and sighed. He was then asked if he would run for president.
"Yeah, I am," Biden said. "Yeah, I am. We're going to run again."
I don't know who "we" is. Cynics said that Barack would run as poor old Slow Joe's vice president, which he is allowed to do under law.
During the Obama Administration, Biden spent most of his time cutting ribbons to open buildings or shopping malls. The gaff-prone VP had to be kept off the stage for the sake of the nation. A run for president would be nothing if not entertaining. He'd be 78 when he took office if he won.
For Republicans, the dream team would include Keith Ellison, a black Muslim as head of the DNC, Rep. Nasty Pelosi, the rich San Francisco sion as House Minority Leader and Slow Joe Biden as the Democratic Party's candidate of choice for the presidency.
Having them on the stump would insure that even more Senate and House seats would be lost - and Joe Biden? Really? Ok, he would have been arguably better than Hillary Clinton was. I'll give you that.
