    Joe Biden has been out of office for four months, but the former vice president hasn't left the public eye. Instead, Biden has kept a robust schedule that fuels speculation about 2020 presidential run. Some Democrats looking to bounce back from 2016 defeats are still looking to Biden to reorient their messaging in a way that could win back the working class voters who fled the party to vote for President Trump. Biden, who passed on running for president last year after a lengthy period of indecision, has promised to remain involved in rebuilding the party. When it comes to...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden fares best among Democrats in a hypothetical matchup against President Trump in 2020, according to a survey from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling out Tuesday. Biden edges Trump by 14 points in a head-to-head race, 54 percent to 40 percent, but he's far from being the only Democrat with an edge on the president heading into the next election.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden had harsh words for former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday night. “I never thought she was the correct candidate,” Biden said at the SALT conference in Las Vegas, according to Fusion reporter Hamilton Nolan. “I thought I was the correct candidate.” TheStreet’s Ronald Orol, who was also at the SkyBridge Capital event, said the audience clapped at Biden’s comments. “No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country,”...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden insists he is not making another presidential bid in 2020, despite giving a rousing speech to New Hampshire Democrats about restoring dignity to politics and winning back working class voters. Biden returned to the state on Sunday to honor the nation’s first all-female, all-Democratic congressional delegation at an annual state Democratic Party dinner. He was joined by U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and U.S. Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter. “We know now you’ve finally earned the title Granite State, because you have four women running the show,” Biden told the crowd. “Amazing...

    Joe Biden has been saying yes to nearly all the political invitations coming his way, with new ones arriving almost daily. Privately, the former vice president and his staff have started talking about how to begin planning a strategy with a roughly 18-month timeline so that if he decides on another presidential run, he’ll be best positioned to get it off the ground. Biden will be 77 by the time of the next Iowa caucuses, but Biden 2020 just might happen. He will be in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Sunday night for a speech at the state Democratic Party dinner....

    Democrats in the Senate pounced on the story to attack then-President George W. Bush over Iraq. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, flanked by other Democratic leaders, went before news reporters the day the story came out waving the newspaper in front of cameras as proof the president was failing to take care of American troops in a war. Much of the information for the story came from a Marine Corps scientist, Franz Gayl, who had been put in touch with the article's authors by Erin Logan, a staff member for then-senator Joe Biden (D., Del.). Ten years later, documents and...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will speak at two Ivy League universities' commencement-related events. But it’s not the University of Pennsylvania, despite his post-White House gigs with Penn. And it also doesn’t look like he’ll be speaking at his alma mater, the University of Delaware, either. Instead, Biden will be sharing his wise words with the graduates and their supporters at both Harvard and Cornell in May.

    “You have an obligation to step up.”There are a lot of reasons to love former vice president Joe Biden. He's had a long and storied political career, he's one of the leaders in the government's fight against cancer; then there's his love for ice cream, his kind demeanor, and charming finger point (you know the one) earning him the nickname "Uncle Joe," and of course there were those memes. If you weren't convinced he was a national treasure before, then President Obama called then Vice President Biden "the best vice president America's ever had" when he awarded him the Presidential...

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) says former Vice President Joe Biden could have easily defeated President Trump if he'd run for president last year. “If Joe Biden would have run against Donald Trump, Biden would have won in a landslide,” Sasse told The New York Times on Wednesday. Asked why Trump won, Sasse said: “I would argue pretty vociferously that’s it’s also because of who his opponent was,” referring to Hillary Clinton. Biden last month voiced regret over not seeking the presidency, predicting he would have beaten Trump if he had earned the Democratic nomination. “I had planned on running for...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden made the crucial first step in a potential run for president in 2020, according to a Tuesday report from Politico. Biden is set to attend the New Hampshire Democrat Party’s fundraising dinner, an event he declined to attend in 2015 because he didn’t want to fuel rumors of a planned run in the 2016 presidential election, according to the report. The fundraiser is important due to the state’s “first in the nation” primary status, and the annual benefit was long seen by party officials as a way to earn early support in presidential races.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday indirectly knocked Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 campaign at a Thursday event, suggesting that the former secretary of state failed to talk to middle-class voters. "What happened was that this was the first campaign that I can recall where my party did not talk about what it always stood for -- and that was how to maintain a burgeoning middle class," Biden said during an appearance at the University of Pennsylvania. "You didn't hear a single solitary sentence in the last campaign about that guy working on the assembly line making $60,000 bucks a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will return to Washington, D.C., Wednesday to join Democrats rallying to save ObamaCare in one of his first major public appearances since leaving office. Biden will join House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders on the front steps of the Capitol to mark the seventh anniversary of ObamaCare's passage, Pelosi's office said Monday. The event comes one day before the House plans to vote on repealing President Obama's landmark healthcare plan, although many conservatives have threatened to withhold their support.
