    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.

    “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...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said as the Republicans were blocking President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, nine GOP senators told him they knew they were doing the wrong thing. “I call 17 Republicans and say, ‘You know better,’” Biden said Thursday. “Nine of them said to me, ‘You’re right Joe, but I can’t do anything about it because if I do the Koch brothers or somebody is going to drop $5 million into my race and I’ll lose my primary.’”

  • Joe Biden Regrets Not Running For President, but Does America Feel the Same?

    During a Friday speaking event at Colgate University, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that he regretted his decision to not run for President during the 2016 election. He stated his prior plans to run for office and believes that he “could have won.” Biden elaborated, claiming that he was “the best qualified.” Is this his way of acknowledging how inane it was for Democrats to elect Hillary Clinton (one of the most loathed politicians in American history) as their nominee? Apparently, Biden was seriously considering his bid for the Presidency, before the death of his son Beau Biden. When...

    "I think I could have won." I may not agree with his positions, I’m glad he’s not President, and he may be an inveterate gaffe-machine but, unlike many Democrat lifer-politicians, Joe Biden isn’t a bad person. Sure, we make a lot of jokes at his expense (and he does get a bit “gropey”) but at the end of the day he’s just Joe. Nobody really has anything too terrible to say about him - a rarity in modern American politics. He isn’t someone I want in the oval office, but he’s certainly not the monster Hillary Clinton is. That’s why,...

"I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very difficult primary, I think I could have won,” he said. “Maybe not, I don’t know.” "I was fairly confident that if I had become the Democratic nominee, I would have had a good chance to be president," Biden continued....

    A man, accused of raping multiple children in Bucks County, Pennsylvania faced a judge for the first time on Tuesday morning. William Thomas, 58, issued a flat denial to the disturbing allegations during his preliminary hearing. He appeared via video from prison. Thomas was arrested late last week on child pornography charges, and five additional counts of child rape were filed on Monday. In court, Thomas told Judge Jan Vislosky, "I'm scared to death, ma'am." He said he "never inflicted any pain on a child, nor would I want to." Thomas did not have an attorney, and the judge repeatedly...

    It may have just been coincidence, or perhaps something more symbolic, but whatever it was, Joe Biden saw the lights go out on him as he mentioned US "leadership" during his last major speech as vice president, in Davos, Switzerland. "We are going to retain our position of leadership," Biden was telling the audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, when the lights on stage began to dim. Rendered a dark silhouette, and seemingly unimpressed, the outgoing vice president carried on talking about the West's ideas and visions of the world. "If we don't fight for our values, no...

    Outgoing U.S. Vice President Joe Biden called on Monday for sanctions on Russia to stay, urging the world to stand up to its "coercion and aggression" after President-elect Donald Trump mooted ending the measures under a possible deal with Moscow. Speaking on a swan song visit to Kiev, Biden said the G7 nations and European Union should lift the sanctions only after Russia had fully implemented a peace deal on ending a separatist rebellion in eastern Ukraine and returned control of Crimea. Trump, who will be inaugurated on Friday, raised the prospect that he would propose offering to end the...
