Joe Biden On 2020: I May Very Well Do It [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday suggested a possible 2020 bid for the presidency, saying he “may very well do it.” “If I were offered the nomination by the Lord Almighty right now, today, I would say no because we’re not ready, the family’s not ready to do this. If in a year from now, if we’re ready and no one has moved in that I think can do it, I may very well do it,” Biden said on ABC’s “The View.”

  • PickyPecker

    I love you, Uncle Joe, but the only thing I can see you doing is to ‘say’ you are doing this and be the lightening rod. You’re tough enough to handle that.

    • Tawreos

      I hope that is what he is doing.

    • Bambino

      Agree. Him putting it out there now as a front for the fresh blood to slowly emerge is a good strategy. To ward off the Good Old Pedophilia party attacks on any great minority candidates the way they did to Hillary.

    • kelven

      Yep, Joe is great and as some have suggested would make an excellent Sec. of State. But it’s time to let a woman (and preferably a woman of color) give it a try.

      • lymis

        It’s time to support a fully qualified woman as President.

        We’re seeing what happens when people just “give someone a try.”

        Let’s see who comes forward and what their actual qualifications are.

    • Jay George

      Exactly because the moment a front runner emerges, the republican smear machine will go to work.

    • JT

      They need someone to attack Drumpf from all the angles and Biden could do that, regardless of whether, in the end, he runs or not.

  • peacfulseas inWA

    I like Joe, but no.

  • Tawreos

    No. Joe Biden is a great man, but his time has passed. We need another Barack Obama, not another old guy

    • Joe was a tremendous asset to Barack. I kinda want to see him continue that role with someone else.

    • JackFknTwist

      I think Joe Biden would make an incredible Pres. …a safe pair of hands, a progressive, a great decent guy.
      Bu…..a big but………………isn’t it time to energize the younger generation by nominating someone who belongs to that generation.
      There’s nothing worse than someone who holds on too long, a boxer who stays in the game too long, or a politician who does not go at the height of his career and waits to be turfed out of office on the down turn.

      On reflection we need a new blood infusion into politics and the older generation have to realize that time passes.

  • Treant

    Eh, it’s a thousand years until 2019. While I think Uncle Joe is way too old for it, he’s free to run if he wants to.

  • Mark

    He’d be 78 then. Love ya Joe, but it’s time for our generation to step aside.

    • PlutoAnimus

      OK, Biden Scrooges, who would stand a better chance of beating Trump or Pence?

      I certainly don’t think any of the others (Sanders, Gillibrand, Harris, et al.) would be likely to do better than Biden, and there’s plenty of reason to think they would do worse.

      You do want to win this time, don’t you?

      • Tawreos

        Пожалуйста, оставьте американские выборы американцам

        • Phillip in L.A.

          Russians just might say, “ . . . американцам выборы американских,” but there is certainly nothing wrong with what you wrote, Taureos. 🙂

          This is just one of the advantages of using a highly-inflected language such as Russian!

          • Tawreos

            Any mistakes are Googles, not mine. Most days I have enough problems with English to learn a whole new alphabet =)

          • Phillip in L.A.

            No, no mistakes, Tawreos–it’s just a fine point of usage, and either way is just fine

      • Circle Thomas

        Black women just took a Democrat to victory in Alabama of all places, and you don’t think a Black woman could beat Trump or Pence in 2020?

      • Mark

        Look, he’s in my generation and I like him a lot. But, it’s time to move on. And frankly, we’re a long way out from the election and who knows who might appear on the horizon. Call me a scrooge if you want to .Trust, me, I’ve been called a helluva worse.

      • Queequeg

        Yes, we do want to win, and people like Biden.

    • Adam Schmidt

      Show me a better candidate that can convincingly and realistically beat Trump and I’ll back them. Until then, yeah… I’ll gladly vote for Biden.

      • Mark

        It’s a long way out and who knows what may happen between then and now. This is today and I stand by my comment. Period.

    • BlindBill

      If he picks a young smart savvy VP – then yes, he should!

      • JackFknTwist

        Good point.

        • 10_39

          He is too old. That job takes stamina and a sharp mind. He is a good man but neither strong nor sharp.

      • Winston Statehill

        Why “young”? I’m 65 and when I was 35 I didn’t understand this emphasis on youth. Biden, himself, was 70 when he won the Vice Presidency after being elected to the senate at 68. What was he suffering from that made him so unmarketable?

        • BlindBill

          Young is a subjective term … My operational definition would be a candidate that has yet to reach the age of 65 when 2020 rolls around. Think in terms of the Biden presidency vp training for the 8 years following.

    • Bj Lincoln

      You do make a point. His age bothers me because even if he is in good health, the human body can only take so much stress before it starts breaking down and the last thing I want is a President die mid-term. As for his understanding of other generations, especially the younger ones, I believe he is more in touch than Drumpf plus he surrounds himself with younger people. He asks questions and delegates qualified people to handle departments and answers. I would still vote for him. Who else can beat him?

    • Marides48

      Ditto!

  • pablo

    Let it go, Joe.

  • AmeriCanadian

    His constant waffling will be totally used against him. I hope he has a trusted advisor that will tell him the truth.

  • JWC

    I would be good with that

  • bkmn

    There is about one year before the decision has to be made. Enjoy the downtime Joe. It might influence you.

  • Ninja0980

    Thanks but no thanks Joe.

  • LeeCMH

    Biden is fine, but I would really like to see Elizabeth Warren president.

    • pablo

      Me too, but I doubt the DNC will allow it.

      • LeeCMH

        Perhaps, but the times they’re a changin

    • AmeriCanadian

      Elizabeth Warren would be a president for the people. That just won’t be allowed by the corporate overlords.

    • Dave Babler

      After her comments about the primary being rigged, I find her to be unacceptable.

    • CraigNJ

      She’d be a better Secretary of the Treasury

  • james1200

    I love Biden, I do, but sadly, I think he’ll be considered too old. And even worse, at a time when sexual harassment is finally being taken seriously, Biden’s “creepy” behavior is going to become an issue.

      • james1200

        There’s too many instances of this. I don’t think it’s anything sordid, he’s just being grandfatherly, I guess, but those women and girls clearly don’t want to be touched and it will become an issue. The GOP will make sure it does.

        • Lazycrockett

          He spent 4 years swearing in Senators, the hits will just keep coming and coming. The media always did stories on his huggy touchy feely behaviour ever other year.

    • Max_1

      Who needs Republicans with Democrats like you?

      • james1200

        I can’t talk about this amongst internet friends, lol? Please! And you think this isn’t widely talked about? It has been for years!

      • penpal

        Exactly. The GOP will neglect, excuse, and support the predators in their party while they point the fingers at Democrats, and Democrats will join in and eat their own. It’s the same fucking game every time and we never learn how to play, which is why we always lose. STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT REPUBLICANS WILL THINK.

        • james1200

          Listen, I didn’t think Franken should have resigned. I’m simply telling you what the GOP is going to do to him with the tons of videos of Biden and his massages.

          • penpal

            And the only reason it’s going to work is because “morality” or whatever that is, is a one-way street with those assholes and self-righteous prigs within our own party do the work on their behalf.

          • zhera

            So someone pointing out that Biden acted creepy makes them a self-righteous prig?

            As someone who’s been on the receiving end of that kind of behavior too many times to count, I think you need to consider if your ‘party above everything else’ is really the wise thing.

        • Romero

          Yup! Look at what they all did to Franken! Democrats and much of the voter base love to self-destruct and eat their own. That’s why we lost 2016. If they (y’all) don’t get your shit together starting now, forget about winning 2018 and 2020!

          *Washes hands and leaves the room*

    • Lazycrockett

      Yep that will be a big media thing. Over n Over again.

    • zhera

      Ouch!

      Biden, no. Just no!

    • JCF

      ITA.

  • BartmanLA

    Oh the Trump tweets this is going to generate! Get your popcorn this is going to be good! LOL

        • matrem

          Yawn. 1/10 trolling at best.

  • Sam_Handwich

    I’m fine with him running and being part of the debate heading into 2020. I’m also fine with him losing a primary race. I’m also fine with him as Sec of State, because we’re going to need someone with institutional knowledge to fix that goddamn mess.

  • MikeBx2

    He’s 75.

  • Lazycrockett

    He will lose during the primary. He is too gaffe prone.

    • Ninja0980

      Not to mention Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill will be brought up.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Old discredited complaint. Who is more gaffe-prone than Trump?

  • William

    Biden is 75 years old.

    • GeneInSJ

      I hate to say this but yes, he’s too old at this point.

      • Reality.Bites

        Justin Trudeau is 45.

        And he’s the oldest party leader in Canada.

        I’m 59 and I’d be extremely reluctant to vote for someone as old as I am and more so for someone older.

        As an MP, or member of Congress, sure. Not for the “buck stops here” position.

        But no, I don’t favour term or age limits. If you are eligible to vote then you should be eligible to run for any public office.

        It’s the way democracies do it. The US should join the club.

  • Tomcat

    Sorry Joe but you are just NOT what the youth want for them.

    • Friday

      Counting on the youth vote hasn’t exactly been a winning strategy lately.

      • Romero

        That’s only because democrats insist on putting down millennials. Hillary Clinton fucked herself over with most young voters the instant she pulled that crap.

        Then the Hillbots jumped on board and pulled the same shit all because most of us were going for Bernie Sanders.

  • Publius

    In college one of my law professors was an aide to then-Senator Biden. She was in charge of establishing the general counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee back in the day. She’s known the Biden family since she was an intern. She would always tell the class she never saw Joe Biden break once, and that he was the real deal. As real in private as he was in public. The closest thing this country has had to a real honest politician in a while.

    With that said I hope he runs, but I would equally prefer fresh blood in the Democratic Party. Either way, I’d support his candidacy if he runs.

  • PeedeResistance

    “The Lord Almighty.” ugh!
    Uncle Joe, you’re a good guy. You’re also too old.

  • I’d rather he didn’t. He’s a good guy, but also just a bit weird.

  • MBear

    No

  • Tomcat

    See Joe, they want a young hipster that says things like Bodda Bing Bodda Boom and Hilly Dilly.

  • Boreal

    No. Young(er) blood needed. The party relies too heavily on people from the last few decades instead of grooming new statesmen.

    • Ninja0980

      Which was a problem in Senate and House races as well.
      Yes, gerrymandering was a *)(# to us but the fact is our neglect of local and state parties hurt us too.

      • Boreal

        This idea of creating new leaders should be part of the long term strategy. Obama won because he was competent and popular but won at the expense of the party expanding back into areas where they were once in the majority. There is far too great a focus on National Ds instead of state and local.

  • Sam_Handwich
  • That_Looks_Delicious

    There is, or there ought to be, a useful position for respected and beloved elder statesmen in the Democratic party without them necessarily being the nominee at the top of the ticket.

    • ChrisMorley

    After last night Its Kamala Harris if she wants it.

    • David Brian Holt

      I agree. She has her flaws but she’s our best candidate right now.

      • BobSF_94117

        Sigh

        • David Brian Holt

          Yes, she has a few flaws. She doesn’t have a great track record while working as state attorney general on claims by those wrongfully convicted. That upset a lot of people.

  • Do Something Nice

    I love Joe and would gladly vote for him. But I hope someone else runs.

  • Nathaniel

    I have an idea for January 2021:
    Cory Booker – The President
    Hillary Rodham Clinton – Secretary of State
    Joe Biden – Secretary of Defence
    Kamala Harris – Secretary of Justice/AG
    🙂

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      I think Harris will definitely have backers. As will Warren and Gillibrand. Gillibrand in particular seems to be positioning herself for a run. I think Hillary is retired from government positions, which doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll be retired from public life. I can totally picture her campaigning and fundraising for Dem candidates, working on a liberal think tank, etc.

      • Nathaniel

        Yes, Gillibrand also would be great Secretery of Defense or even President. Warren – I’m not a big fan.
        When it comes to Hillary you can bet that she would not reject nomination for Defence or State Secretary. I think she even wants it, and show everyone that she will end carrier when SHE decide.

    • matrem

      How about Kamala Harris as president?

      • Nathaniel

        Yes, she would be great too. And Gillibrand also.

      And we do a lot of shitslinging here also, but we are willing to live and let live.

  • HZ81

    It’s going to be a ‘No’ from me as it was the last time he ran, but he’s welcome to go for it.

  • BeaverTales

    He has appeal to all Democrats, unlike the previous candidate(s) who were viewed as either dishonest or divisive. He’s going to be 77 and seems to be more honest and less tone deaf. He can’t possibly be worse than anyone in the GOP. He can combine demographics and forces within the party, like Obama did.

    If a better candidate exists, they are free to run against him in a free and fair election. That is the America I grew up in.

    • Bambino

      And pick Obama as his VP just to witness the head explosions from the Grand Ole Pedophilia society is well worth it.

      • That’d be a colossal fuck you to the GOP.

        • Jonathan Smith

          would be a COLOSSAL fuck you……..
          but we want to win

      • Lazycrockett

        Obama can’t be VP, I assuming you know that.

        • zhera

          Maybe Bambino meant Michelle Obama?

        • Bambino

          Yes she can! :p

      • ErikDC

        It’s not clear Obama would be eligible to serve as Vice-President now, as there is some debate over the interaction between the 12th and 22nd amendments. The Republicans would most certainly sue and SCOTUS would have to decide.

        • Reality.Bites

          Secretary of State would be fine. Who better to restore the USA’s international reputation and relationships with allies?

          • Lazycrockett

            It’s basically what hes doing at the moment.

          • Reality.Bites

            He has no power, no influence on what passes for the US government. I’d say he’s reminding the world there are two USAs and one is a member of the world community and the other is not.

          • I am guessing Obama is done with being a politician.. It is much easier raking in money via books and speaking engagments….

        • Bambino

          Just merely floating the idea out there and watch the fragile racist party having a major meltdown can be quite entertaining.

    • Biden has made a history of gaffe like statements, and he is more like the nice drunk uncle at Thankgiving than the mean racist drunk uncle..

      Biden has run for President two times before, and has never been the greatest campaigner.. I am not the biggest fan of Biden, but he does know how Washington works, and was used by the Obama Administration to cut deals with McConnell during some budget impasses..

  • Jay George

    I love Joe Biden, but he’s too old for the job.

  • Gigi

    The Democrats need an energetic and optimistic progressive who’s able to tap into the agmngst and anger of middle America and energize the base. Joe Biden isn’t that.

    • Friday

      I think you may be wrong there, actually. Joe Biden is a lot more ‘regular folks’ than we’ve seen from the Republicans anywhere in higher office or the executive branch, just lately, and he’s the guy that used to get *dismissed as serious* *because* of saying …kind of ordinary blue-collar things they’d call ‘gaffes’ despite them paling in comparison to what has become almost ‘normalized’ now. He could be a very damn good choice for the next one, actually.

      And he’s definitely been unafraid to show more progressive attitudes and sometimes hit harder since he left office.

  • Phillip in L.A.

    Has there been a Constitutional Amendment I haven’t heard about? Last time I looked, “the Lord Almighty” did not distribute nominations for ANY elective office in this country

    • madknits

      Exactly. For this reason we fought and won a war against the British.

  • Sam_Handwich

    My hubs loves Michelle Obama and wants her to run. After the Dotard clusterfuck, she would certainly represent a return to sanity. But i’m not sure she has any interest

    • Lazycrockett

      MIchelle doesn’t give that much of a fuck bout this country to lose 4 more years of her life to it. She has sacrificed enough.

      • Bj Lincoln

        She has the energy and desire to make a difference but I don’t think she wants the responsibility. She knows it’s huge and does not want the stress.

      • Reality.Bites

        Their kids already sacrificed their childhoods too.

        • Bj Lincoln

          I just hope they don’t misbehave now that they are trying to live their own lives. We have seen a few get into some kind of trouble. Compared to Drumpf, it was nothing.

          • Reality.Bites

            So far the trouble seems things like kissing boys and smoking cigarettes.

            But something we need to understand now and forever is there is nothing we can do to please to committed Republican voter – and nothing the Republicans can do to lose their support.

            If someone’s self-definition is being against the Democratic Party there is nothing the DP can ever do to win their vote.

      • Romero

        And I would NOT want to put Michelle Obama through the same racist bullshit that her husband was put through for eight years. If I were them, after this whole Adolf Trump/Trumpanzee fuckery went down, I’d simply say “Fuck America, you ingrate racist scumbags” and find a nice home or condo in Toronto or Montreal.

    • JCF

      She doesn’t. It’s Impossible Dream, people—let it go.

  • SoCalGal20

    It sounds like Joe is only going to run if no other awesome candidates come forward, so I don’t think he’ll be running.

    • mpatreyu

      My awesome candidate was going to be Franken. Have to go shopping again.

      • SoCalGal20

        Harris, Gillibrand, and Kennedy are the ones I’m hoping will run. Any combination of those three would be an awesome ticket imo.

        • Nathaniel

          Unfortunately, two women on the ticket would raise conservative turnout. You know… misogyny.

          • Bj Lincoln

            I too think it would not be strategic at this point. But then she has a better chance because any one will be better than another 4 years of Drumpf. By then he will have raked in some nice money and destroyed the country in every way. As it is, it will take years to comeback from the damage he has already done.

          • It doesn’t matter, misogynist will turn out.. Gillibrand isn’t Hillary Rodham Clinton.. Ditto with Harris. Much like the racists will gladly come out in force if Harris won the nomination..

        • canoebum

          After what she did to Al Franken you can still support Gillibrand? She destroyed him before any facts were known. I’m looking for someone to primary her highness before her head gets any bigger.

        • I think Gillibrand and Harris should run..

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    I am so torn here. I was not a fan at the first, but he was a stellar VP, probably one of the best, and we need someone who restore some dignity to the nation. BUT, I think we need someone who has a credible chance of standing for two terms. Even Reagan was retired by that age.

  • Dave Babler

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    One quality Joe Biden has that whoever is going to be the nominee will need is that intuitive ability to connect in the “Rust Belt.” Justified or not, it was very easy for the Republicans to paint Hillary as someone who didn’t understand blue collar workers or cars/steel/coal/manufacturing. Hypocritical, I know, because Trump is as far removed from that world as possible, but Dems are held to a different standard. It is too big a block of electoral votes to take for granted.

      Oh, pffff. She’s proven herself to be a complete Trump toady.

      • Nathaniel

        In a few years she will flip flop.
        Then the media: “She is the new Republican! Go Nikki! Hillary’s emails! Go!”

    I think Vice President Biden has done a lot of good, but I’m hoping for Senator Kamala Harris to run.

  • JT

    I’d love to see Biden taunt Drumpf to haul his fat ass into a ring and duke it out.

    I could get behind this. We do really need a deeper bench, but that’s not likely to just appear. He’s older but so far as I know, healthier than the older candidates the Repugs keep putting up, and frankly there could be an advantage in him being a white guy, just cause the Repugs have gotten so *dependent* on misogyny and racism to try and increase candidates’ negatives.

    OT – Too funny not to share.

    OTOH, if so many people are typing this question that it automatically pops up in Google, maybe we’re doomed and I shouldn’t be laughing.

    By all means, do it, sir! I don’t care if you’re religious, you’re an excellent human being!

  • Achilles Tsakiridis

    Joe Biden / Kamala Harris 2020 ? That would be fun fun fun

    • Until they lose the 2020 election..

  • Rocco

    Please don’t run.

    • canoebum

      We’d be damn lucky to have a man like Joe Biden as our President. I’d vote for him in a heartbeat.

      • LesbianTippingHabits

        I would have voted for him in 2016.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    can’t wait for all the pictures of him awkwardly groping women.. then the screams of both sides as Chuck Todd nods knowingly at Leslie Graham yammering on about how the left is morally bankrupt…. rinse and repeat with all the repuke morning show guests.

  • MarkBuster

    I’d consider voting for him, and I’m one of those Bernicats that you hate so much

    • Reality.Bites

      So… got an old white guy fetish?

  • Friday’s_cat

    The Lord Almighty doesn’t whisper in ears, that’s the province of the guy from the warmer regions. Just sayin’.

  • Keith D Plane

    no, no, no,Joe, no appreciate your service but your time has past

  • TuuxKabin

    Leave the Lard and your fine self outta this, Uncle Joe. Love ya’ blind. But tutoring potential candidates across the country would be a good thing.

    Look, Joe … I love ya. But you can’t be seen as indecisive or not quite committed or golly-gee-I-dunno about this. It has to be a calling that you want.

    And you don’t seem to “want” it. You just seem to be saying, “Yeah, well. Maybe.”

    Let someone with a younger vibe and a great following step up.

  • Kevin Andrews

    Not NO but HELL NO. The last thing America needs is Creepy Uncle Joe in the Oval Office. It is long past time for NEW BLOOD and honest humans to take control of this nation and really make America great for Americans by ending all foreign aid to Israel, Ending all Wars and bringing our troops home.

  • Queequeg

    My concern is, of course, his age.

  • ian

    Of course he’s going to run. His whole dance around the issue whether or not he’s going to run in 2020 has been annoying to say the least. I haven’t made up my mind. There have been several thoughtful editorials and opinion pieces pro and con, and both sides make valid points. His age is a con, plus having been in government so long he has some baggage. On the pro side, also that he’s been in government so long he’s got the experience. Personally, I lean toward a nay. It’s time for the old guard to step aside.

  • LesbianTippingHabits

    I appreciate Joe Biden doing everything he can to encourage credible Democrats – the next generation of national leadership (?) – to step forward for 2020.

    That is, by suggesting he might run himself. I very much admire him, but his moment was – repeat, was – in 2016, and he chose not to. Thank you.

  • leastyebejudged

    He was pretty awesome on The View this am.

    I have to say, his likability index was as high as it gets.

    People calling him “creepy uncle joe” should go die in a ditch.

  • HappyDance904

    That’s like O2!!!

  • sacrob

    He ran for president twice and the voters rejected him. Maybe after they reject him for the third time he’ll take the hint…
