Add one more to the crowded list of Democratic candidates
(Vanderbilt – ‘06)
With goals of not increasing Forces and Citing his Sources, it appears
that Senator Joe Biden wants another crack at the President’s job. He will
fight President Bush’s decision to to send additional troops to Iraq. No
1988 replay for Joe this time around?
“It is my intention to seek the nomination, and it’s my intention sometime in the month of January to set up the appropriate mechanism to be able to raise money for that purpose,” said Biden.
Incoming Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Joseph Biden, a potential Democratic presidential candidate, said Tuesday he would oppose any effort by President Bush to increase U.S troops in Iraq as part of a new war strategy.
Biden has spoken candidly of his desire to run for president and has made repeated visits in the past year to early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire. But he is trying to find room on a crowded stage of Democratic contenders that includes Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois.
