    To wrap up, McConnell got serious again: “His journey began here, by the side of those who loved him, hand on the Bible, heart in a knot, swearing the same oath he now administers to others. It's a journey that ends now by the side of those who still care about him.” McConnell included himself in that list. “Mr. President, you've been a real friend. You've been a trusted partner, and it's been an honor to serve with you. We're all going to miss you. Godspeed.”

    Joke not a joke. Way back in the olden days - 2015 to be precise - I really believed that Joe Biden was going to run for President. It just made sense. Despite his inarguable status as America’s touchy-feely gaffe machine, ‘Crazy Uncle Joe’ has a proven track record of winning. At the time, I felt (and still feel) that Biden would have been a much more dangerous candidate than Hillary. Anyone with a pair of third-rate eyeballs could see that Mrs. Clinton was going to be a disaster. Biden may be wrong about everything but, unlike Hillary Clinton, he...

    Vice President Biden on Monday raised the possibility of a presidential bid in 2020. “I am going to run for president in 2020,” Biden told a group of reporters in the Capitol when asked about his political future. Asked if he was kidding, the 74-year-old Biden paused for four seconds before saying he is “not committing not to run.” “I am not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.”

    Early on Tuesday afternoon, the Prime Minister’s Office announced in a news release that U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden will visit Ottawa during Justin Trudeau’s meeting with the premiers—and the Canadians will throw a dinner in the veep’s honour. This was a quaint reminder of how foreign dignitary visits traditionally get announced and arranged. It came a few hours after a reminder of how deals and diplomacy will get done in Trumpworld—with all the pomp and circumstance of a couple of phone calls and back-slaps.
