    Biden: 'If I Don't Move I'll Be Demoted To Secretary Of State Or Something' 5:00 PM, Oct 7, 2015 • By SHOSHANA WEISSMANN During the White House's Summit On Worker Voice on Wednesday, Joe Biden had a clear message for labor unions—that Hillary Clinton might not be a reliable ally, but he would be. His speech focused on his sympathies for the labor movement, his friendship with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, and the like. He also hit Clinton, saying, "if I don't move... I'll be demoted to Secretary of State or something like that. [laughter from audience] THAT'S A JOKE."...

    If Joe Biden jumps into the Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton will be ready to go on the offensive. According to a Clinton campaign source, a team of opposition researchers working on behalf of Clinton is currently digging through Biden’s long record in office to develop attack lines in case the vice-president runs. The research effort started about a month ago and is being conducted by operatives at Correct the Record, the pro-Hillary superpac founded by David Brock, which is coordinating with the Clinton campaign. According to the source, the research has turned up material on Biden’s ties to Wall Street;...

Gays and lesbians should not fear "those shrill voices" working to oppose homosexual "marriage," Biden said, because Americans "have moved so far beyond them and their appeals to prejudice and fear and homophobia." The potential Democrat presidential contender also took the occasion to attack the character of candidates from across the political aisle, stating, "There's homophobes still left – most of them are running for president."

"There's homophobes still left,” he continued to laughter and applause, in his keynote address. “Most of them are running for president, I think."(continued)

    Vice President Joe Biden is throwing his unequivocal support behind letting transgender people serve openly in the U.S. military, as the Obama administration considers whether and when to lift the longstanding ban. Biden's declaration at the Human Rights Campaign's annual dinner Saturday goes further than anything the Obama administration has said before, evoking memories of when Biden outpaced President Barack Obama in endorsing gay marriage. Although the White House says Obama supports a Pentagon review aimed at ending the transgender ban, neither Obama nor the military has said definitively that the policy will be changed.

    A new poll of New Hampshire likely voters is more bad news for Hillary Clinton. The survey indicates Clinton is the weakest Democrat candidate for next fall’s presidential election… The poll, of 743 likely voters, found Clinton leading Trump by 8 points, 50-42 percent. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, however, lead Trump by 20 points, 57-37 percent... This poll, it should be said, should be taken with a certain grain of salt. The poll’s sample is split 46 percent Democrat, 38 percent Republican and only 17 percent Independent. That composition is completely different than the 2012 electorate, according to exit polls.

In addition, the poll shows Clinton virtually neck-and-neck with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a hypothetical match-up. Forty-six percent (46%) of all voters – and 24% of Democrats – think Clinton should suspend her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination until all of the legal questions about her use of the private e-mail server are resolved. Sanders vowed to reverse that trend if he becomes the Democratic standard-bearer and gets other candidates to ride his coattails. She’s now polling...

Also, in a document cited by the Wilmington, Del., office of Biden’s former bishop – Bishop Michael A.

On the Democratic side, support for Vice President Joe Biden -- who is still considering a run -- has almost doubled...

    WASHINGTON — When the U.S. State Department announced this week that it finally is going to designate the Haqqani network as a foreign terrorist organization, it was a nonevent for most of our countrymen. That's because few Americans know how deadly the organization is. For that we can thank those at Foggy Bottom who are wedded to the naive hope of a near-term "diplomatic breakthrough" in Afghanistan. Couple that misguided belief with the Obama administration's self-deception that the radical Islamic jihad against the West ended with the demise of Osama bin Laden and it's understandable why the Haqqani network...

There's no doubt about that, but I think...we shouldn't get into the politics of this back and forth because I don't think...

    nationwide Monmouth University poll released Tuesday morning. But unlike in past months, it's not just independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the former secretary of state's rear-view mirror. This time, Vice President Joe Biden, who has been entertaining the possibility of a run, is effectively tied with Sanders in second place among Democrats nationwide. In the latest Monmouth survey, Clinton drew 42 percent to Biden's 22 percent. Sanders picked up 20 percent, while 10 percent were undecided and all other candidates earned 1 percent or less. In last month's Monmouth poll, Clinton picked up 52 percent, compared with 16 percent...

    Vice President Joe Biden issued a fiery call for a more equitable tax system as he marched with union workers Monday, diagnosing fairer taxes as a solution to a growing disparity between the wealthy and middle class. “I hope everybody in America has a chance to become a millionaire.

    Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday he was unsure if he will seek the Democratic presidential nomination, telling a Jewish audience that his decision will hinge on whether he and his family have the “emotional energy to run.” “Unless I can go to my party and the American people and say that I am able to devote my whole heart and my whole soul to this endeavor, it would not be appropriate,” Biden said, responding to a question following a foreign policy address. Biden offered his most extensive public remarks regarding his deliberations about entering a Democratic primary race that...
