I recently made a prediction on ATS that, due to Hillary actually looking vulnerable in Iowa and New Hampshire to Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden might now actually be having second thoughts about going up against her.
I believe his recent praise of Sanders was an attempt to give him a bump in the polls against Hillary.

Biden and the Obama administration hate Hillary, but would've backed her if she continued her unchallenged cruise to coronation in order to keep Republicans out of the White House.

They like Sanders, but believe that while he has helped diminish Hillary Clinton...he is still un-electable.
They may now also have some inside information from the FBI regarding an impending indictment against Clinton being handed down very soon, which they hadn't known when Biden was last considering a run.

I believe Biden is about to have another go at the nomination.
This recent interview with Dick Morris, says he believes it could happen, as well.



Dick Morris: Joe Biden Could Enter Race



Vice President Joe Biden may make a surprise eleventh-hour entry into the 2016 presidential race as Hillary Clinton's poll numbers continue to plummet, veteran political analyst Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV.

"There's a real chance. We have to focus on the incredible fact that … Hillary has fallen apart among female voters over the last three weeks," Morris said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"Among all voters, she used to be beating [Donald] Trump by 10 points, now she's losing to him by three. [Sen. Ted] Cruz used to be beating her by two points, now he's beating her by nine. [Sen. Marco] Rubio used to be beating her by three, now he's beating her by 10.

"And the entire change has been among women voters. No men voters."

Morris, who served as an adviser to President Bill Clinton and is a Newsmax contributor, said Hillary Clinton has dropped an average of 13 points among women in the last three weeks.

"That is largely due to Bill Clinton and to all the publicity and expose of his sexual activities and of her efforts to cover them up and to enable them.

"If [Sen.] Bernie Sanders [of Vermont] beats her in Iowa and New Hampshire, which I think he will, that will show she's in very tough shape politically and … there might be a lot of pressure for someone else to get into the race, like Biden."

In addition, an FBI investigation into the former secretary of state's use of a private email server for government business could end up with an indictment, Morris believes.

"The indictment would knock her out of the race and free her delegates who are already on the ballot to commit to Biden and run as Biden delegates. You could still see that happen over the course of the next four to six weeks."

Asked about Donald Trump's crack that he hopes to run against Sanders, Morris said:

"Anybody on Earth can defeat Bernie Sanders, so that's probably what Donald's talking about.But the Democrats know that anybody can beat Sanders.

"So if Hillary is showing signs that she can't beat Sanders, and that she's in trouble with the Justice Department and that Obama is not supporting her and that women are running away from her, that all increases the pressure on Biden."

I really wish that Jim Webb had stayed the course... I think he bailed too soon... although he bailed on his Senate seat due to the current culture in DC on BOTH sides of the aisle...

He knows that it isn't "by, for and of" the people right now, hasn't been since WW2...

Biden? He's a lifer politician like most of what's left to choose from...

I think the odds on electing a President who puts the nation first, are worse than winning the powerball tomorrow night.. so you might as well take the better odds, and hit the machine and get your chance of buying your own island

There is a good chance someone else will enter the race if Sanders wins Iowa and New Hampshire. Because they'll never let Sanders have the nomination.

But I doubt this will happen. My guess is Clinton will handily defeat Sanders in Iowa. It will be closer in NH. Sanders may even win. But then Clinton will demolish him in SC and it will be all over but the shouting.

The Sanders campaign will likely limp on till Super Tuesday. But with little interest from the press. After a disappointing Super Tuesday for Sanders, he will "suspend his campaign" and endorse Clinton.

You may be right. BUT...I think something has been leaked to the Obama administration from the FBI...regarding an indictment on Hillary. It might possibly be devastating to her run...and she'll have to leave.
I think this is a catalyst for Biden again being urged into the race by Obama.

Biden reentering will automatically receive her delegates. If he doesn't, Sanders gets the nomination...and Obama can't count on him to win.

It is obvious to anyone watching closely that he is being prepared to take over for the fast-diminishing Hillary. As I've pointed on in another thread on this, the same day of continued and new incrimination evidence surfaces about Ms. Clinton, the media had a statement from Joe that he "...regretted every day that he did not run..."

You don't need a crystal ball to see that the groundwork is being prepared for Hill's successor for the throne. The only question is, will she surrender gracefully her efforts for the job because of internal pressure, or must an official criminal charge cut the ground out from under her protests of no wrong doing?

Just like the months Joe floated a possible run, I think this theory is another effort to distract from the fact that the DNC only offered up two contenders -- and one has an 'unpredictable' ongoing scandal dominating headlines. So, in effect, it may just turn out that the DNC only offered up ONE viable candidate: Bernie Sanders.

Biden detracted from this fact for months while the GOP had 16 uninspiring candidates and one that is highly polarizing and horribly unpredictable.

It seems to me that the DNC (and GOP) may have set up their own members and that they chose Bernie from the get-go. It would be just like them to capitalize on partisan blindness.

Does Biden's wife know this? She said "No Joe" on NBCs Today show just this morning.

But you know more than she, no doubt.

Oh thank god we are saved.

The guy who helped the credit card companies screw us and loves wall street.

Not to mention his amazing leadership and inspirational speaking power.

They are prob nervous Sanders has a chance and he will fight the lobbyists.

No, it's more likely that they know Hillary is in some serious legal hot water she can't easily slime her way out of.

Does Biden have himself a nest egg in his campaign fund because it's a lil late now to start fundraising and recently I read this article,

Biden says Obama offered financial help amid son's illness



Washington (CNN)As his eldest son faced the prospect of resigning as Delaware's attorney general amid health concerns, Vice President Joe Biden received an offer that floored him: financial support from his boss, President Barack Obama.

In the never been told before story, Biden recalled how concerned Obama had been.

Describing in an interview with CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger one of his weekly lunches with Obama, Biden said he told the President he was worried about caring for Beau's family without his son's salary.

"I said, 'But I worked it out.'" Biden recalled telling Obama. "I said, 'But -- Jill and I will sell the house and be in good shape.'"

Obama, Biden remembered, pushed back vehemently on the thought of Biden and his wife selling their home in Wilmington, Delaware.



Looks like Biden has bigger things to worry about than trying to be president.

Exactly. And Bernie could win the nomination and the presidency depending on who he runs against. The Republicans also don't have a strong candidate except for the hair guy who loves watching himself talk on TV.

Sad election.

And even then, amongst the Republicans, there is a massive split regarding Trump.

One day - Republicans say he is a plant for the DNC.
The next day - they say he is the greatest chance of going against the establishment.

But I thought he was a plant in order to swing Republican votes to the Democratic Party...?

This is the current cluster*^%* of confusion that is the election cycle.

Trump says that every woman subconsciously or consciously flirted with him on The Apprentince. He also said, that was to be expected.

He has some sort of pathological issue when it comes to how much he adores, praises, and gloats about himself and his business (and his daughter he wants to date).

Sad election, indeed.

The money would pour in for him if Dems think he's jumping in to save the 2016 election from Republicans.

If anyone jumps in, it would be John Kerry.

If Kerry jumps in, he'd probably break his leg again.

He might, however, remember what chili is this time around, or leave Teresa home should he encounter it in the untamed wilds of a local Wendy's.

I don't want to see Hillary become president any more than the next guy, but are you guys serious?
Do you actually think that Hillary is about to get indicted and will be unable to run?

That is some very wishful thinking.

It may be true that the WH doesn't like her but at the end of the day, they'll begrudgingly support her.

All this talk of possible doom towards Hillary's campaign is just conservative news bits, shot out into the blogosphere, hoping to get a rise and deliver propaganda.

I think the globalists like Bernie...and they have more say and pull more weight than anyone inside the USA. The "world" wants Sanders, as a more democratic-socialist America would be good for them.
