    This is awesome news and he could steal a large chunk of democrats from the hapless Hillary ho which is a very good thing. However, I am still sticking with Bernie Sanders from Vermont.

    I do think both Clinton and Biden would be far more hawkish with regards to my big three issues: Islam, Russia and China.

    Well, the Washington Post messed up but that does not mean the Yahoo story is not accurate.


    WaPo accidentally publishes Biden candidacy story, abruptly yanks
    Report says Biden ready, paper: ‘This file was inadvertently published’

    He's a man of integrity, but I don't think he should run.

    Biden and Hillary both followed the incompetent President Bush on the Iraq War and the Patriot Act and therefore, caved to terror.

    Let us not reward their awful judgement and instead elect Bernie Sanders, who has continuously fought for the people.

    Unless Obama has a plan to throw Hillary under the bus -- which wouldn't surprise me -- and he plans to support Biden, I think Biden running could prove to be an epic FAIL. He's already run and lost twice. Then again, as an incumbent Vice President, he may be taken more seriously this time. Plus, who knows, 3rd time could prove a charm.

    I see Biden's path as consisting of two main parts:

    1. Obama endorsement
    2. Concentrating on South Carolina (and Nevada if he has the resources) to take a win from Hillary. If Clinton cannot win Iowa, NH, or SC I expect her donors to jump ship to Joe.

    I think it's more accurate to say that Bush followed a considerable number of democrats with a difference that 43 wasn't just talk, but did something about it.

    I disagree. Many died because of his horrible war and the result was the creation of ISIS. Bernie Sanders predicted this outcome. Even Republicans run away from the Bush name. I think it is very safe to say that he will go down as one of the worst presidents.

    What does he have for his legacy? He helped stop the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Which is good, but that might be about it.

    Not like we haven't re-litigated this at least 10,000 times on these pages .....

    What really helped create ISIS is pulling ALL of our troops out of Iraq. Funny that we see fit to keep troops in Japan and Germany 70 years after the end of war and South Korea for the past 60 years. And I hear this crap that Iraq didn't want us there .... well, neither did Germany or Japan. Tough shit, we're gonna be there until we feel like leaving. After the surge in 2007 and 2008, things had settled down there only to be ruined by pulling our troops out too quickly. "Bernie Sanders predicted this outcome", anyone could have.

    Now true, it was mishandled from the start by going in with about 1/4th the number of troops we needed to win the 'war', but not enough there to keep the peace until surge time in 2007. Now this I lay at the feet of 43 and Rumy. Shit, 41 had over a half million just to throw Iraq out of Kuwait

    And I still say over time Bush will be ranked in the top 45 presidents. icon_wink.gif

    He's in my top ..... hmmmm hmmmm ..... 15.

    That would be the best thing for the Democratic Party. Throw their support behind Joe Biden who is obviously very qualified and tell that power hungry, self aggrandizement seeking whore to go back to Chappaqua, Westchester County, New York where she rightfully belongs with Bill her hopelessly horny hubby. Obviously Bill will get a couple lamps thrown at him by this hot tempered, spoiled rotten bimbo.

    BREAKING: Joe Biden Announces He Is Not Running For President

    Vice President Joe Biden, who has been agonizing for months over whether to challenge Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and the rest of the Democratic field for the party's presidential nomination, has decided to pass.

    I was really disappointed when I heard this. I would have voted for him. I've always liked Joe Biden. I like Bernie Sanders also. Both of these guys seem to rise above the toxic soup of Washington politics. Ultimately, I will vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is.
