Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Biden Talking With Supporters about Presidential Run

Oh, yes, please, Joe.

Among those who fear a Clinton presidency, sure, a fair number are staunch Republicans who want to see their own candidate (there are now 17 and counting in the race) in the White House. But a growing number of Democrats also find it hard to support Hillary. They’d never vote Republican, but are already exhausted by the scandals, the lies, the shameful manipulation of the Clinton Foundation to launder bribes and payoffs.

Those Democrats want a candidate they can support, not accept holding their nose shut against the smell. They want someone who does not contemptuously demand “Vote for me because what else are you going to do, suckers?”

So it is with some cheer that we learn Vice President Joe Biden, inspired in part by his late son, has been holding meetings at his Washington home to discuss challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, the New York Times reported.

Biden has said publicly he would make a decision at the end of the summer but the Times said the vice president and his associates were actively exploring getting in the race. Citing several people who have spoken with him and his advisers, said the Biden camp was contacting Democratic leaders and donors who have not firmly committed to Clinton.

NYT columnist Maureen Dowd cited a conversation in which Beau Biden, a former attorney general of Delaware who was dying of brain cancer at the time, tried to get his father to promise he would run. The vice president’s younger son, Hunter, also encouraged him, Dowd wrote.

“He was so close to Beau and it was so heartbreaking that, frankly, I thought initially he wouldn’t have the heart,” Boston attorney Michael Thornton, a Biden supporter, told the Times. “But I’ve had indications that maybe he does want to – and ‘that’s what Beau would have wanted me to do.'”
