IS BIDEN REALLY GOING TO RUN IN 2020 FOR PRESIDENT?
On Monday Vice President Joe Biden raised the possibility that he might run for president in 2020. When asked whether he was kidding and pressed on his comment Biden stated, “I am not committed to anything, I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.” Surely he was most likely kidding, as Joe is prone to do. The 74 year old Biden would be 78 in 2020. However, all joking aside, those on the Left would probably want Biden to run and he might even be the Democrat front-runner. Which shows just how pathetic the Democrat bench really is. Biden decided not to run in 2016 following the death of his son, Beau. In retrospect, Biden would have made a much better candidate than Hillary Clinton.
“I am going to run in 2020,” Biden told a group of reporters in the Capitol when asked about his political future. “What the hell man, anyway.”
Asked if he was kidding about running, the 74-year-old paused for four seconds before saying he is “not committing not to run.”
“I am not committed to anything,” he added. “I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.”
It would be surprising if Biden decided to continue his decades-long political career, which many assumed would end once President Obama and he leave the White House next month.
Biden will be 78 in 2020 and would by far the oldest person ever to win a major-party presidential nomination if he became the Democrats’ standard bearer.
