You’ll nary hear me utter an unkind word about Joe Biden – after all, the man is a silver fox – but the time is drawing close where I’m going to have to adjust how I feel about the man who haunts my dreams with his yellow corvette, his REO Speedwagon, his aviator sunglasses, and his kegs of Natty Lite, since it seems, more and more, like he’ll join the race for President.
Joe Biden will likely wait until after the first Democratic Presidential debate, to see how badly Hillary fares and to capitalize on the public’s abject terror at having Bernie Sanders, a man who’s hairdo is inspired by electroshock victims, as their nominee, but Biden has already floated Elizabeth Warren as Veep, and now it turns out, he’s been laying groundwork for his emotional appeal for some time. According to a special report by POLITICO, it was Joe Biden himself who leaked word that his son, Beau Biden’s, dying wish was that Joe run for President.
Joe Biden has been making his 2016 deliberations all about his late son since August.
Aug. 1, to be exact — the day renowned Hillary Clinton-critic Maureen Dowd published a column that marked a turning point in the presidential speculation.
According to multiple sources, it was Biden himself who talked to her, painting a tragic portrait of a dying son, Beau’s face partially paralyzed, sitting his father down and trying to make him promise to run for president because “the White House should not revert to the Clintons and that the country would be better off with Biden values.”…
“Calculation sort of sounds crass, but I guess that’s what it is,” said one person who’s recently spoken to Biden about the prospect of running. “The head is further down the road than the heart is.”
Apparently, in what could be the most cynical play for a Presidential campaign in the history of, well, ever, Biden practiced the speech in front of several other people before delivering it to Dowd, making certain to punctuate what he told her with deep emotion. That was the mark at which his campaign actually began, and the point at which speculation began to heighten. Shortly afterward, he invited Elizabeth Warren to lunch. Then, according to POLITICO, news spread that Jill Biden had agreed to the potential campaign. Then, Biden went on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show to deliver a personal appeal.
He has a few weeks before the official filing deadline.
