A Biden-Warren ticket? - Power Line (blog)
"...As for Biden, Warren is just what he needs to make a strong run at Clinton. Running by himself, Biden, who has always been a pragmatic Dem rather than a hard leftist, might face an uphill battle peeling off Sanders voters. With Warren, the face of the populist left, at his side, Biden would likely cut deeply into Sanders' support and possibly sideline the Vermont socialist entirely.Running by himself, Biden faces the intractable problem of being a white male. A big part of the case for Hillary is her gender; indeed, this may be what's keeping her afloat. Many female Democrats are desperate to elect a female president...." see full article

Could a one-term Biden presidency rescue the Democrats? - Washington Post (blog)

"...As the buzz about Vice President Joe Biden mulling a presidential race takes flight, those sympathetic to his run float a one-term trial balloon. It's smart on many levels and solves several problems both for Biden and the Democratic Party, the latter which is reeling from the FBI inquiry into Hillary Clinton's e-mail and her declining poll numbers...." see full article

Four ways Biden could upend the 2016 race for everyone - WTSP 10 News
"...A bid by Biden call it the Democrats' Plan B could offer a credible alternative, albeit at the risk of a more divisive campaign. In case of party emergency, here's Joe, political scientist Dante Scala of the University of New Hampshire puts it, though he's not convinced the modern political process makes that a feasible scenario. That worked 50 years ago for Hubert Humphrey, but of course party elites controlled the process (then) in a way they don't now. A Gallup Poll released last week found Democrats split down the middle on whether Biden should run: 45% in favor, 47% against. You can take that as a glass half-full or half-empty for Biden, says Democratic pollster Margie Omero. Still, Biden would need to find a non-Clinton/non-Sanders base. I'm not sure there's a sizable group of low-hanging fruit waiting for him. ..." see full article

Run Joe run? Biden calls Chattanooga shooter a "perverted jihadist" - Hot Air
"...But I still have to wonder if, while fully sincere, it was also a bit more calculated. Biden has done nothing to tamp down the rumors that he's at least considering a run for the Democrat nomination, even if it was only for one term. With Hillary's prospects beginning to dim under the possibility that she might, if elected, spend a significant portion of her first term behind bars, Biden surely must be thinking about it more seriously. But he's serving as second fiddle to a President who has faced enormous criticism both at home and abroad for his lack of both vision and execution when dealing with ISIS. Were Biden to run, he probably wouldn't want to march onto the stage offering a third Obama term when it comes to foreign policy...." see full article

The Joe Biden Speculation Is Not About Joe Biden. Its About Hillary Clinton. 

"...The Democratic Party, though, is just fine with boring. That's why for all the anybody-but-Hillary chatter this summer, the party's powerbrokers continue to line up behind Clinton and the major donors continue to cut checks. For the establishment, then, Biden represents little more than a Plan B in the event something unthinkable derails Clinton, be that her email problems, or something else that pops up between now and next summer. And for the rest of us, for now, he's just something to talk about...." see full article

Why Joe Biden Should Hang It Up and Not Run for President
"...A long drive through the cornfields and anti-choice billboards of America's heartland gives a fella time to think. And this is what I think. Joe Biden should retire honorably as vice-president in January of 2017. (I'm not even going to dignify the Al Gore business.) The whole thing about announcing you're only going to serve one term is completely bananas; you become a lame duck about eight seconds after your victory speech on election night. And, call me Kreskin, but I don't think that the current Republican congressional majority is made up of people who are going to be so moved by the gesture that a new era of bipartisanship will be born...." see full article

Biden mulling one term presidency - American Thinker (blog)

"...In theory, the idea of a president not having to run for re-election is attractive. We wouldn't have all this "legacy building" that has led to so many missteps by Obama in his second term (Iran, Cuba, immigration, etc.). Supposedly, a one term president would do what's best for all Americans and not just those in his party or in service to an agenda not burdened with the need to run another race. But Congress would have to run for re-election and would have their own agenda. With the president as a lame duck from the moment he takes the oath, it's hard to see why Congress wouldn't serve their own interests. The president would have little clout within his own party and could end up being little better than a figurehead...." see full article
