    Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, made a bold pronouncement on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" Sunday, predicting Vice President Joe Biden will get in the race for president Monday or Tuesday. "Joe Biden's going to get in, I'm quite confident. I think he'll get in tomorrow or Tuesday," Kristol said. "I think he'll go to Delaware, presumably, and he'll announce in a state he represented for so many years, and I think he'll be a strong candidate."

    Without mentioning his name, US Vice President blasts new hasbarah chief Dr. Ran Baratz, over his past comments against President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. Biden was quick to stress America's “rock-solid” commitment to Israeli security at the start of his 45-minute address before the Union for Reform Judaism's biennial in Orlando, Florida. Then, in sharp condemnation of Baratz, Biden noted that "although we won’t always agree, and this is the one thing I do want to say - We should always be respectful of one another." “There is no excuse, there should be no tolerance for...

    China’s stringent regulation of American movies isn’t just a matter of cultural differences, but in fact runs afoul of China’s commitments to the World Trade Organization, which in 2007 ordered the country to open its doors to cinematic imports. China failed to comply with the WTO directive for several years, the researchers write, but in 2012 made a deal with the United States to raise the cap on film imports from 20 to 34 films a year -- a move heralded by the Obama administration as a breakthrough. But more films didn’t lead to WTO compliance. “The ruling called for...

Speaking in the Rose Garden alongside his wife Jill and President Obama, Biden said the window of opportunity to mount a viable campaign "has closed." He has been weighing a decision since summer, but cautioned all along that he and his family were grieving over the loss of his son Beau Biden -- and said Wednesday he knew that process could outlast the window for making a decision.

    Rumors continue to swirl that Vice President Biden will soon be (finally) making up his mind about whether to run for president. Why is this taking so long? Conventional wisdom seems to revolve around two theories: (1) He really hasnt made up his mind, or (2) hes simply waiting on standby in case something big drops on frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Either is plausible, although the first strikes me as less plausible. If nothing else, Biden is a canny politician, and he understands the difficulties of entering the race this late in the game.

But while that might be true, consider that Biden need not just be a passive player in the game.

As brilliant and charismatic as is Lincoln Chaffee, still he might just not do. But what if Biden...
