    Joe Biden should announce he’s running for president in 2020. Right now. Democrats need a singular voice representing the party. And as we saw in the recent Georgia special congressional election, that voice should not be Nancy Pelosi. Cut the coy. Cut the Mario Cuomo routine. Just throw down Joe. You know you want to. If you announce now, the next two years become a debate between you and Donald Trump. You become the shadow president. You’ve earned it. You deserve it. You regret you didn’t run last time. Because you’d probably be president right now. Beating Hillary in the...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, warning of transgender Americans “under attack” in Republican-led states, on Wednesday challenged the nation’s LGBT community to push back against President Donald Trump’s administration. “Hold President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend,” Biden declared at a private LGBT gala hosted by the Democratic National Committee in New York. “Just because you don’t have Barack and me in the White House doesn’t mean it’s time to give up, keep quiet, stay on the sidelines.” Trump vowed to protect the LGBT community during his campaign, but critics say he hasn’t kept his word since...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Donald Trump without saying his name Saturday, telling a crowd of Florida Democrats last year’s election unleashed a coarseness that hadn’t been seen in decades but he said the party’s candidates can overcome that by showing disgruntled voters that they have solutions. […] “This past election cycle churned up some of the ugliest, ugliest realities that persist in our country. Civilized discourse and real debate gave way to the coarsest rhetoric, stoking some of the darkest emotions in this nation,” said Biden, 74. “I thought that after all these years we had passed...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday slammed a comment from former Vice President Joe Biden about how budgets reflect priorities. "Don't tell me what you value; show me your budget and I'll tell you what you value," Biden had said. Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) mentioned Biden's quote during Tuesday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing with Tillerson. Coons used the quote to reference the Trump administration's proposed funding cuts to the State Department's budget. Tillerson said that results gauged values more than funding. "Having the funds are certainly appreciated and needed, but then we have to be able to...

    Why are so many people so angry at her? You've seen the headlines, begging Joe Biden to just give it up and get out of our faces already. "Dems want Joe Biden to leave spotlight," says The Hill.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that he knew a month before the 2016 election that Hillary Clinton would lose key battleground states. Biden made the comment during a closed-door appearance with Mitt Romney at the annual Romney-hosted E2 Summit, reports Politico. Based on his assessment of campaigning in those key battleground states, he said, he knew a month before the election that Clinton would lose them. Biden also stepped on Hillary just last month, saying he never thought she was a “great candidate” during a conference in Las Vegas. …

    Former Vice President Joe Biden could "absolutely" muster the energy for a 2020 presidential bid, his brother said in an interview released Wednesday. "Absolutely. Absolutely," Frank Biden told SiriusXM host Michael Smerconish when asked if the former vice president could launch a White House campaign in 2020. "Why anyone would think otherwise, I don't know." [Snip] "If you look at it objectively, Joe is one of the few people in the United States that commands respect from the right and the left, based on the fact that you may not like what Joe says, but you can take to the...

    Joe Biden has been out of office for four months, but the former vice president hasn't left the public eye. Instead, Biden has kept a robust schedule that fuels speculation about 2020 presidential run. Some Democrats looking to bounce back from 2016 defeats are still looking to Biden to reorient their messaging in a way that could win back the working class voters who fled the party to vote for President Trump. Biden, who passed on running for president last year after a lengthy period of indecision, has promised to remain involved in rebuilding the party. When it comes to...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden fares best among Democrats in a hypothetical matchup against President Trump in 2020, according to a survey from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling out Tuesday. Biden edges Trump by 14 points in a head-to-head race, 54 percent to 40 percent, but he's far from being the only Democrat with an edge on the president heading into the next election.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden insists he is not making another presidential bid in 2020, despite giving a rousing speech to New Hampshire Democrats about restoring dignity to politics and winning back working class voters. Biden returned to the state on Sunday to honor the nation’s first all-female, all-Democratic congressional delegation at an annual state Democratic Party dinner. He was joined by U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and U.S. Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter. “We know now you’ve finally earned the title Granite State, because you have four women running the show,” Biden told the crowd. “Amazing...

    Joe Biden has been saying yes to nearly all the political invitations coming his way, with new ones arriving almost daily. Privately, the former vice president and his staff have started talking about how to begin planning a strategy with a roughly 18-month timeline so that if he decides on another presidential run, he’ll be best positioned to get it off the ground. Biden will be 77 by the time of the next Iowa caucuses, but Biden 2020 just might happen. He will be in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Sunday night for a speech at the state Democratic Party dinner....

    Democrats in the Senate pounced on the story to attack then-President George W. Bush over Iraq. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, flanked by other Democratic leaders, went before news reporters the day the story came out waving the newspaper in front of cameras as proof the president was failing to take care of American troops in a war. Much of the information for the story came from a Marine Corps scientist, Franz Gayl, who had been put in touch with the article's authors by Erin Logan, a staff member for then-senator Joe Biden (D., Del.). Ten years later, documents and...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will speak at two Ivy League universities' commencement-related events. But it’s not the University of Pennsylvania, despite his post-White House gigs with Penn. And it also doesn’t look like he’ll be speaking at his alma mater, the University of Delaware, either. Instead, Biden will be sharing his wise words with the graduates and their supporters at both Harvard and Cornell in May.

    “You have an obligation to step up.”There are a lot of reasons to love former vice president Joe Biden. He's had a long and storied political career, he's one of the leaders in the government's fight against cancer; then there's his love for ice cream, his kind demeanor, and charming finger point (you know the one) earning him the nickname "Uncle Joe," and of course there were those memes. If you weren't convinced he was a national treasure before, then President Obama called then Vice President Biden "the best vice president America's ever had" when he awarded him the Presidential...
