Former Vice President Joe Biden has been signaling to aides that he would likely serve only one term in office if elected president in 2020, according to a report on Wednesday.
Campaign advisers and some top Democrats have been debating whether he should publicly announce his intention not to seek a second term, but Biden is concerned that going public could make him a lame duck and rob him of political capital, Politico reported.
If Biden is elected, a prominent adviser to the campaign told the news website, hes going to be 82 years old in four years and he wont be running for reelection.
Some believe that by Biden announcing his intentions and then selecting a young and diverse vice president and Cabinet, he could portray himself to Democratic voters as the candidate best suited to defeat President Trump and the candidate introducing fresh faces in the party.
This makes Biden a good transition figure, the adviser said. Id love to have an election this year for the next generation of leaders, but if I have to wait four years to get rid of Trump, Im willing to do it.
But by not announcing his one-term plan, Biden retains a trump card.

Dream on Hairsniffer,dream on.
Malarkey. A politicians promises arent binding.
Momma always said don’t make fun of senile old hairsniffers who pretend they can be President.
Imagine the things Mr Biden will be saying when he is 82.
Biden, the walking moron, was done the day he declared his candidacy for 2020 POTUS. Hillary is mounting her horse and will march out to claim the Democrat Party 2020 POTUS candidate status. Ms. Clinton is all the sad sack Democrats have left!!!
Is this some kind of bargaining chip?? (chuckle)...
Casual lies from an expert on lying.
“One and done” because it’s his turn.
Shotgun Quid Pro Joe “no malarkey” Biden the Groping Pedo 2020.
Best Campaign Sign ever.
They don’t have anyone who can beat Trump so far
So who is next...
Hope it is Clinton.
Pick Hillary as his VP and he will only serve a week.
Short of a complete economic collapse or other black swan event of that magnitude, no democrat is winning the White House. Period.
So, he’s thinking of campaigning on the platform that he’s too old to serve two terms?
I think the negatives (for him) out-weigh the positives on this.
Donald Trump Mocks Joe Biden for Repeatedly Forgetting Which State Hes In
Did he say it was his turn ,LOL
Float Stacey Abrams as your VP and then say you’ll only serve one term. Now THAT’S a winning strategy! /sarc
Whichever candidate gets nominated because “It’s my turn” always loses. Just ask Bob Dole. I would say “ask Hillary” too, but you won’t get a straight answer from a liberal.
Two questions Joe should be asked by a reporter:
(1) What country?
(2) What gender will he be?
Less than that if Hillary’s his running mate.
