In Other News: Joe Biden is (Still) Thinking About Running for President

It looks like the Democrats may try to breathe life into an even older, even mustier presidential candidate for 2020.

Over the weekend, Joe Biden went on PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton for an interview about how his and President Obama’s foreign policies allowed the Syrian Civil War to begin in 2011; funneled weapons to “moderate” rebels who took those same weapons and started a group called ISIS; then proceeded to hem and haw for five and a half years while ISIS ran rampant, before leaving office and the subsequent cleanup to the Trump Administration in 2017.

Just Kidding!

Actually, Joe and the good “Reverend” spent a while armchair-quarterbacking about how poorly President Trump is handling the Syrian War, and about how everything would be so much better if he were in charge.

They then chatted for a while about how Republicans hate black people and don’t want them to vote (very original), before finally getting down to the real nitty gritty: is Joe Biden considering running for President in 2020?

When Sharpton asked the question, Biden gave almost exactly the same cryptic answer that we all heard hundreds of times during the 2016 presidential campaign. Biden talked about the loss of his son, Beau, in 2015, the loss of his wife and daughter in 1972, then stated that he hasn’t ruled a run out. Biden also stated that he doesn’t trust “all the polls showing (him) winning.”

Biden may have been referring to a January poll that showed him leading Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, and Oprah Winfrey in a Democratic Primary by double digits.

Normally, remarks from a former Vice President who served in the Senate for decades about considering a presidential run would be about as extraordinary as a bowl of oatmeal (without brown sugar). What makes Biden’s remarks interesting is the fact that by the time the 2020 election comes around, he will be a few days away from turning seventy-eight years-old.
