    While Hillary Clinton is viewed by many as a political powerhouse who will cruise to the Democratic presidential nomination, there may be room for a familiar face to challenge her: Joe Biden. The newest indication that the vice president could jump into the race comes from a Wall Street Journal report, which cites friends and advisers who say Biden, 72, received encouragement to do so from sons Beau and Hunter. Beau Biden died last month after a long battle with brain cancer. Hillary Clinton, who served as secretary of state during President Obama’s first term and worked closely with Biden,...

    US VICE President Joe Biden is considering a run for the White House after his dying son reportedly urged him to seek the presidency again. Biden, who competed for the presidency in 1988 and 2008, lost his eldest son Beau last month after a battle with brain cancer. Beau, the former attorney general for Delaware, encouraged his dad before he passed away to have another shot at the Oval Office, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Biden was speaking at the start of the annual U.S.-China Security and Economic Dialogue, which takes place amid growing tensions over cybertheft and China’s island building in the South China Sea. Secretary of State John Kerry said he was looking forward to a “very frank” discussion on cybersecurity, Internet freedom, human rights and religious freedom.

    When famous people die these days, there is an irritating modern tendency towards hyperbole. Everyone even remotely well known who passes away is instantly, breathlessly propelled via social media into the once rarefied stratosphere of ‘great’ or ‘finest’. Insincere platitudes of alarming extravagance rain down on the heads of often thoroughly undeserving individuals. Sometimes, though, it is deserved. ‘Beau Biden was quite simply the finest man any of us has ever known,’ said Vice President Joe Biden about his son, who has died from brain cancer aged 46.

    From CNS News: Speaking at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday about affordable housing, Vice President Joe Biden said home ownership helped him pay for his children’s college education, even if that would not be the case today because of the amount of money he earns.

    Vice President Joe Biden once told Chinese President Xi Jinping that U.S. leaders only support human rights as a matter of political optics, and that this makes the United States no better than China, according to a new New Yorker profile of Jinping. The New Yorker relates encounters between Biden and Jinping in 2011 and 2012, when both were vice presidents of their respective nations: Biden told me that Xi asked him why the U.S. put “so much emphasis on human rights.” Biden replied to Xi, “No President of the United States could represent the United States were he not...

    Was it another of US Vice President Joe Biden’s now infamous verbal gaffes when he told American Jews last fall that they will ultimately be safe only in Israel? At a time when Western nations are trying to convince their Jewish populations to stay amid rising anti-Semitism, it seems incredible that America’s #2 would essentially warn his nation’s Jews to flee. But that’s precisely what Biden did while hosting a Rosh Hashanah party attended by senior American Jewish leaders last September. Journalist Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic wrote that Biden began by recounting his first meeting with legendary former Israeli...

    "No matter how deeply involved you are in the U.S. … there’s only one guarantee ... and that's the state of Israel" In the April issue of The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg reports on a remarkable incident last fall at the residence of Vice President Joseph Biden. Speaking before guests—including leaders of Jewish organizations and Jewish officials in the Obama administration—invited to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Biden recalled meeting Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir when he was a young man in the Senate: “I’ll never forget talking to her in her office with her assistant—a guy named Rabin—about the Six-Day War,” he...

    An incredible admission by US Vice President Joe Biden has been revealed, in which he told Jewish leaders that should the American Jewish community be in danger, it has only Israel to rely on—and not America. […] “You understand in your bones that no matter how hospitable, no matter how consequential, no matter how engaged, no matter how deeply involved you are in the United States…there’s only one guarantee. “There is really only one absolute guarantee, and that’s the state of Israel,” he stated. Responding to the statement, Corey Robin of Salon wrote how disturbing the statement is, given that...

    BOSTON — President Barack Obama summoned today's quarrelsome political leaders to emulate the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in the pursuit of compromise on Monday, and said a new institute that bears the longtime Massachusetts senator's name can be as much an antidote to political cynicism as the man once was. "What if we carried ourselves more like Ted Kennedy? What if we were to follow his example a little bit harder?" the president asked a crowd of family, former aides and political dignitaries of both parties under a tent in raw weather just outside the doors of the Edward...

    ow worried are Democrats that Hillary Clinton might be a problem as the Democratic nominee? Some are even thinking of Joe Biden as an alternative. A draft-Biden movement has started.

Joe Biden? When the next president is sworn in, he will be 74 years old, but that’s only the beginning of his problems. A creature of Washington since he was elected to the...
