Skip to comments.Joe Biden 'intoxicated' by 2016 run

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.

That’s what I am thinking. Even one of the mediocre candidates the GOP has a habit of running should be able to beat Biden. (note, I said SHOULD)Unless the GOP is touring halfway houses for their pick....
could WE get him nominated?
He’s knows he’s not black, right?
Someone needs to tell him he is NOT middle class (as he repeatedly told audiences last election).
Mooch-hell wants her turn and isn’t going to waste time with a Senate seat like her husband or Hillary.
I’m sure not laughing. The intelligence of the left along with the sock puppet media proves that ANYBODY can become pResident.
So I guess it’s not the Vodka he keeps in his drawer?
Geez. Obama wins election twice, now everyone thinks they can be president. I’ve got this illegal alien friend... I’m just thinking outside the box. What do you think?
Joe Biden is the Inspector Clouseau of American politics. Good for a laugh, but never to be taken seriously.
He is too old now and too stupid. I say go for it.
In order to run for office he'll need to be a woman and have a lot more hair.
That was a fairly common event at a very popular watering hole near the University of Delaware back in the day............
Joe meet Hillary. Hillary meet Joe. See ya later Joe.
Joe was running back and forth across the street with this MANIC smile on his face....leaving Jill alone on the walk, looking around constantly to see where her doofus husband was. She plodded grimly ahead without an escort till she reached the limosine, a protocol no-no in DC. In an event like this, you don't desert your wife....it's like leaving your girlfriend stranded alone in the middle of the Gym Jams dance floor.
As he ran back and forth from curb to curb like a yo-yo on speed, he was constantly pointing his thumb and index finger in the two-fingered gun position aiming at certain folks on the curb, mugging for the TV cameras and showing off like everybody in the crowd was a personal friend worthy of his fleshy finger aimed at them.
The same childish gun gesture, of course, that puts 6-year old kindergarten kids in school dentention for 6 months....or for one year if they yell "pow" when they point.
That whitey hatin’ wookie has no chance in hell.
