Skip to comments.Run, Joe, Run: Why Democrats Need a Biden Candidacy
Posted on 05/10/2014 7:58:48 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Forget Elizabeth Warren. What the Democratic Party, and the nation, need is a real debate between Hillary Clinton's interventionism and the vice president's restraint.
Joe Bidens prospective presidential candidacy is in danger of becoming a joke. Every week, some new Democratic bigwig pledges himself to Hillary Clinton. Pro-Hillary groups have already assembled to fend off hostile campaign press. At last weekends White House Correspondents Dinner, President Obama added to the air of inevitability by teasing Fox News, Youll miss me when Im gone. Itll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.
If theres any suspense left about the Democratic primary in 2016, it largely revolves around whether an economic populist will challenge Clinton from the left. The prospect of Elizabeth Warren entering the race tantalizes many liberals. But since Bidens not an anti-Wall Street crusader, his potential candidacy sparks barely any interest at all. Thats too bad. While a Warren candidacy would spark one valuable debate inside the Democratic Partyabout governments role in the economya Biden candidacy would spark another: about Americas role in the world.
Among todays Democratic foreign-policy elite, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden represent opposite poles. Hillarys a 1990s-style hawk. Although she and Bill came of age during the movement against Vietnam, they both grew far more comfortable with American military force during his presidency. In her first memoir, Clinton describes having supported Americas interventions in both Bosnia and Kosovo. As first lady, she lobbied for Bill to appoint Balkan hawk Madeleine Albright as his second-term secretary of state.
It was Albright who in 1998 famously called America the indispensable nation. We stand tall and we see further than other countries into the future.(continued)

Why Democrats Need a Biden Candidacy?
“While a Warren candidacy would spark one valuable debate inside the Democratic Partyabout governments role in the economya Biden candidacy would spark another: about Americas role in the world.”
You could say that yes
would there BE a “:role” for America with a joey biden Presidency??
Well, if the truth be told, I’d rather have Biden in the White House than Hillary.
About the only person I can think of who would be worse than Hillary is. . . .
We entered the Twilight Zone over 2 decades ago, maybe 5...
Run, Joe--Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five
Wouldn’t it be great to see Plugs and Hillary in a debate? Maybe he could ask her about Fast & Furiious and Benghazi.
the guy is basically retarded. People made fun of how stupid George Bush supposedly was even though he was a jet pilot but Biden is actually stupid.
It always has been a joke.
You joke about this, but there really is a good chance that Biden could become the nominee. The same powers that put Obama in office (and kept Hillary out) are still in charge, and nothing would serve them better than finding another puppet like Obama. And in that regard, Biden fits the bill perfectly. All they’ll need is another idiot to be his Vice President such as Hank Johnson or Corrine Brown.
I don’t think Georgie Porgie Soros is going to let anyone run against Slick Willie’s wife. She couldn’t survive a primary challenge by anybody.
And these wacko leftists judge Sarah Palin!!
Hillary is a pathetic failure at everything she has done. She is by far the worst Senator— worst Secretary of state. She was complicit in the murders in Benghazi and DID nothing!!
This is why Al Gore threw his hat in the ring. There is the very real prospect of the great Trey Gowdy to find that Hillary had Ambassador Stevens trying to pay the Al Qaeda for return of stinger missiles that she and obama provided them to shoot down Qaddafi aircraft because the UN would not authorize a “no fly zone” on a sovereign country. . She is TOAST.
A retarded democrat might as well run in 2016. The man has serious mental issues.
Elizabeth Warren was long ago unmasked as a fraud who built an academic and political career on the fantasy or (more likely) lie that she had Native American ancestry. She should have been tarred, feathered, run out of Cambridge on a rail, and never heard from again. Instead she is being touted as a serious Democratic candidate for the presidency. What planet is this?
...a Biden candidacy would spark another: about Americas role in the world.
Thanks to Obama and the radical leftist clowns in his administration, the rest of the world now believes that America has probably become a joke, a faint shadow of its former self. A Biden candidacy followed by a Biden presidency would remove all doubt.
Biden would beat Jeb Bush.
“You’ll miss me when I’m gone...”
How can we miss you if you won’t go away?
Joe Insurance Policy for President? This is satire, right?
This is a man with a negative IQ, for goodness sake.
“On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

The hits just keep on coming. Go for it Joe, how much worse can it get?
But, Karl Rove said she sustained brain damage in her fall sometime back that hospitalized her for four days. I loathe Tokyo Rove, but, he could be right. Wait until her erratic behavior goes on non-stop.
Elizabeth Warren was long ago unmasked as a fraud who built an academic and political career on the fantasy or (more likely) lie that she had Native American ancestry.
And the people of Massachusetts didn’t give a crap. But, that will follow her nationally if she does run. The rest of the nation is NOT like Massachusetts.
I'd like to see John Kerry (who served in Viet Nam) in the mix also. It would be fun to see Kerry and Hillary blasting each other over each other's dismal record as Secretary of State.
