Fox News is reporting they have inside information that Joe Biden is planning on announcing his Presidential run in the next 48 hours. There is talk that Hillary Clinton wants him to announce it sooner than later, who knows what the motive behind that is.

There was a podium for Joe Biden ready for him at the CNN Democratic Debate in case he decided to run, but he didn't show up. Now sources say that he is scheduling interviews for his campaign staff.


Fox News reported that Vice President Joe Biden plans to jump into the presidential race, he's just not rushing to do it.

White House Correspondent Ed Henry said that we could see a decision announced by Biden in the next few days, possibly at the Iowa Democratic Party's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on Saturday.

Three sources close to @VP telling me he's expected to announce he is running but the sources are all urging caution on 48-hr timeline

In the last 2+ months that pollsters have been polling Joe, he's gained 12+ points and Hillary has lost 14+ points. Meanwhile, Bernie has also gained 12+ points. The only one benefitting from a Biden candidacy is Bernie Sanders.

IMO, Joe's going to split the moderate democrat vote with Hillary and throw the race to Bernie. It's obvious to me, anyway. If Joe wanted to actually win, he would have been campaigning over the last two months and gathering support, not letting Bernie gather and solidify his supporters.

Bernie's supporters have no reason to stray, but Hillary's do.

The candidate that sells himself as most anti-Establishment is the Establishment's choice -- just like Obama. The Establishment is Congress. (But Congress will never admit they want to spend (misappropriate) money under Bernie's $18 trillion plan for America.)

That's my take anyway.

Joe is looking to do as little talking as possible so he appears sane, thus the delay.

I expected this sooner.
Bernie is to old and the Dems don't want him.
Hillary is one more scandal from a jail cell.
Kinda depressing joe is the best of the rest....

Maybe Joe has inside info on Hillary being indicted.

Also, I bet Hillary would love for Joe to announce around the time she is testifying in front of the Benghazi committee.

Joe is not the best of anything. He was VP to a president who promised progressive policies and delivered the opposite. He is the poster child for the Establishment.

And many people haven't forgotten Larry Sinclair. I know I haven't. Whether you believe Larry or not, he was indeed arrested on a bogus warrant issued by Beau Biden's office just a few weeks before Joe was named Obama's running mate.

Joe is a very bad man.

I can't stand Joe either, but him running could be the nail in Hillary's campaign coffin. That, at least would make me smile.

Joe in the election is an interesting twist. Yes, he is known for his
propensity to say things out of turn, but I would not underestimate
him for many reasons, not the least of which Obama has already
endorsed him, that alone is worth much investigation.

WaPo Accidentally Publishes Biden Candidacy Story, Abruptly Yanks


Embarrassed Washington Post editors were left scrambling earlier today after a story was accidentally published that declared Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy.

With “XXX” showing in certain areas where details were yet to be added, it’s clear the piece was meant to remain in draft mode. But somebody with a fat finger hit the wrong button

Biden is just as old as Bernie.

Anyways I really do hope he jumps in, but I have to wonder at this point just how seriously he's taking it. On the Democrat side Biden is my top choice, followed by Bernie, and then there's no one after that really (unless Elizabeth Warren would run).

He doesn't stand a chance. He'll get knocked out early in the primaries. Whoever is egging him on to jump into the race must have their own agenda because it should be apparent to anybody that he stands little chance.

Hillary is one more scandal from a jail cell.


Oh yes, this Benghazi scandal is really hitting her this time.


Politico reports, Republican congressional investigations on Benghazi have included "13 hearings, 25,000 pages of documents and 50 briefings." In a letter written in March 2014 responding to a request for information from a ranking Democrat in the House Armed Services Committee, the Pentagon notes:

"The department has devoted thousands of man-hours to responding to numerous and often repetitive congressional requests regarding Benghazi, which includes time devoted to approximately 50 congressional hearings, briefings and interviews which the department has led or participated in. The total cost of compliance with Benghazi-related congressional requests sent to the department and other agencies is estimated to be in the millions of dollars."

A bipartisan report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence determined that "there were no efforts by the White House or any other executive branch entities to 'cover-up'

Is this really all the GOP has? Really? Benghazi?

Sure Herr Hillary has made the call and informed every candidate
on both sides of the aisle; didn't they get the letter informing
them The Election has been cancelled; please come to her Coronation.

I don't know why everyone is so convinced Hillary is the One. She didn't win in 2008, and, in fact, she dragged Obama across the finish line by keeping her name on the Michigan ballot while he took his off. She won the popular vote and reserved the right to take it to the credentials committee, but she didn't. She rolled over and handed Obama 600,000 votes cast for her in Michigan.

I don't see Hillary as anything more than a plant and a political operative. The biggest lie told is that she wants to win. I think she's just playing along with the email scandal knowing her negative press just helps Bernie.

She won't ever see jail time for it.

Congress wants to spend money on Bernie's plan. Billions will disappear -- with no oversight -- just like they did under Obama's stimulus plan. Hillary will profit greatly from that. Hillary's true love is money. The Clintons have a long history laundering money.

Agreed though the Democratic Party is doing everything in its power to
float her to the nomination, "inevitable" and all that propaganda,
the rigged debate.

And some of their old partners in "crime" were recently arrested by the FBI.
Of course that could work either way depending on who is pulling the strings.

I do not see Bernie as a viable candidate for the election, imo he is just there
to make Hillary look younger and less leftist, and I am no fan of Biden.

I don't think the DNC is banking on Hillary and her ongoing *ahem* unpredictable email scandal to win. What I see them doing is their very best to convince people that she is the Establishment's choice.

If Biden runs, he will just split Hillary's votes *Perot style* and that will benefit Bernie.

Just like last time, the Establishment's candidate is billing himself as an outsider and anti-Establishment. They aren't going to make their choice obvious in this political climate. Voters from both parties are very anti-Establishment.

When neither Jeb nor Hillary win the nomination, voters will be convinced they beat the Establishment. But the Establishment will win.

I think it will be Bernie in the general election, and Trump will ditch republicans and run third-party to fracture the conservative vote so badly, that Bernie will win comfortably.

Biden needs not to waste his time unless he knows Hillary's got legal problems

The voting public is definitely leaning anti establishment, yes,
and Bernie has that going for him big time, just as Trump and Carson do.

As a person, he seems genuine and he is likable enough,
unlike Hill who is most unlikable, and held as dishonest
and untrustworthy.

If Bernie really wants to win, his path is clear,
He wont win demurring to Hillary.
