As most now know VP Biden is now out of the presidential running, but what does this mean? While it may not seem like a big deal at first glance,
there really is a pretty strong message sent by Biden's sudden exit.
In order to understand one must look at the bigger political picture. Biden entered the race for the democratic nominination just over a month ago.
He must have known something back then because otherwise he would have never risked the public embarrassment of having to withdraw so soon after
throwing his hat in the ring. What could this nugget of knowledge have been?
Regardless of his bumbling nature, Biden is still the VP and as such he had access to inside information (inside the beltway intel). For him to enter
the race against a political titan like Hillary Clinton the information he had must have been pretty powerful. Clinton has been polling at about
46-50% approval within the party, compared to Biden's poll numbers of about 15%. With those numbers it was political suicide for Biden...unless he
Biden entered the race because he likely knew, or had a pretty good idea, Hillary would be charged by the FBI in the Benghazi / classified email
investigation. This would cause her to drop out eventually. He must have also known the president wouldn't intervene in the matter. Biden's exit
from the democratic race is even more telling.
Biden's sudden exit from the race sends an even stronger message. This new message is, Clinton likely won't
be charged by the FBI in
the email-gate affair...and that the president will do anything in his power to prevent this from happening in order to preserve the image of the
party over all else (including justice).
So there you have it. Biden's out, but it's the underlying message sent by his entry and sudden exit which is so important.
