More reporting about Joe Biden positioning himself for a Presidential run

NATIONAL JOURNAL's Jim O'Sullivan offers another article suggesting Vice President Biden is putting together a framework for a 2016 Presidential bid.

I realize a lot of this is a bit like "Groundhog Day", but it's still interesting to follow the national reporting about Delaware's former longtime senator...

As mentioned, Biden has been positioning himself for this job since at least the 1987 presidential race, when his plagiarism of Labor Leader Neil Kinnock got him tossed out of the Democratic primary. Biden wanted this for a long time.

Don't you think a Hillary/Joe Biden primary would be fun?

A Hillary vs. Biden primary? There'd be no contest, Hillary would beat out Biden. Biden's got his strengths, but Hillary is far more popular than Biden on his best day.

Hillary is a statesman (stateswoman), able to meet and be a public face of our nation. Biden, while a smart guy who's able to broker deals in back-rooms, just lacks the public persona, looking Presidental. Then there's his Achilles Heel; he puts his foot in his mouth.

No doubt in my mind, IF those were the only two choices for DEM nominees for Prez, it would be Hillary.

Another slow news day, Allan?

Mrpizza: Slow news days happen sometimes. However, there are all sorts of news stories out there, but Allan has also gotten to know which stories most of us will respond to (political, both national and Delaware) and tends to bring those up here. Every now and again, he'll throw us a curve ball to see what we'll say, if anything. Even sports once in a while.

Trust me, I worked with Allan for 5-6 years at the other radio station, and if anyone knows about what's going on in the world literally, its Allan. I'd call him the newsmans' newsman. If he had the time, which given how busy he is at WDEL I'm surprised he ever has time to fool with this blog thing, he could bury us in news stories most of us wouldn't know about and wouldn't be interested in. He's smart, he knows his audience.

MFD: I agree with all your accolades for Allan and then some. But seriously. Joe Biden?
