Skip to comments.Joe Biden 'intoxicated' by 2016 run
Posted on 01/23/2013 11:59:10 AM PST by Servant of the Cross
Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night.
I took a look at who was there, said longtime New Hampshire state Sen. Lou DAllesandro, and said to myself, Theres no question hes thinking about the future.
Hes right. Biden, according to a number of advisers and Democrats who have spoken to him in recent months, wants to run, or at least be well positioned to run, if and when he decides to pull the trigger. Biden has expressed a clear sense of urgency, convinced the Democratic field will be defined quickly and that it might very well come down to a private chat with Hillary Clinton about who should finish what Barack Obama started.
Hes intoxicated by the idea, and its impossible not to be intoxicated by the idea, said a Democrat close to the White House. And the intoxication is hardly new. Officials working on the Obama-Biden campaign last year were struck by how the vice president always seemed to have one eye on a run, including aggressively courting the presidents donors. Obama aides at times had to actively steer Biden to places where he was needed like Pennsylvania because he kept asking to be deployed to Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states.

Joe Biden intoxicated....
Run Joe Run!
Haha . . . I too so hope he runs.
Surely even the cretins who voted Obama into office will not bother to show up at the polls on election day for Biden . . . although perhaps I shouldn’t underestimate the ignorance of the electorate given the last two Presidential cycles.
yes, Joe will no doubt be intoxicated before during and
after a 2016 run.
Team him up with a transgender cross dressing freak and he will be a shoe-in. This is not tong and cheek I’m dead serious We couldn’t beat barry, we don’t have a chance in hell
Absolutely no chance in the primaries. Partisan Dems appreciate Joe as a team player but are already nervous enough that he’s next in line to the presidency. A sober GOP candidate like Rubio, Ryan, Jindal, etc. would utterly destroy Clown Biden, and Dems know this.
You don't have to go home Mr. Vice-President, but you can't stay here.
I say so many stupid things ... cause I'm drunk ... and not just because I'm a moron!
Hillary is just intoxicated.
Also, ole “gaff a day Joe” is 70 and will turn 74 during the run up to the 2016 election. So, health will become a significant factor as he ages.
Hey, I'm runnin' for president in '16! Will you be in my parade?
Head Fake alert!
I'm more than a little confident in my suspicion that there are no plans for Slow Joe to do anything further after 2016.
The Dems would want us to focus on such a fool, however.
wouldnt it be sweet if Obama endorsed him and he beat Hilary in the primaries?
Yes, it's hysterical. He really thinks he's a 'storybook' too ... clean, bright and articulate! He's toast.
Almost as laughable as the chance of a foreign national with a fake birth certificate and a false SS card winning the presidency. Oh wait
Well, that and booze.
