So the Washington Post reporter says "she is the biggest Democrat presidential favorite since at least 1984". Funny, as the nominee then was Walter Mondale. I think he won maybe one state. If she does run, hopefully history will repeat itself. I hope Biden does run. His gaffes are not near as destructive as Hillarys tenure at State was. I'd much rather have another gaffer as President than a "What difference does it make?" President.

I like Joe. He's comfortable with himself.

Benghazi, fast and furious and IRS scandals: Remember in the old days when President Obama's biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?


I have the same fundamental problem with a Biden candidacy as I did with John McClain. He may not be too old now; but by the latter half of his term, he will be.

Being President is a difficult, stressful, time-intensive job. It is not work for those in their 80s.

Dan Quayle could run as his VP.

He be as entertaining as Bachman, Cain and the cast of other colorful charecters the GOP had in 2012. Please run Joe, America needs the humor.

Benghazi is political hay. 9/11 and building 7 I want some answers to republicans! Along with WMD's in Iraq. So keep up the Benghazi and we'll get at ALL the answers.

But to the point. Biden should run. I don't think he'll get the nomination but in liberal circles we like to let the people actually vote on things.

Biden hasn't got a chance. Next to him, Quayle (who really got a bad rap) looks like a genius. I don't think anyone with half a brain (Biden's twin?) would consider a loose gun like he has shown himself to be as a potential candidate. I could be wrong though. I didn't think anyone would have considered a socialist like Obama to be a viable candidate, either.
