The ultimate nightmare for Queen Hillary the entitled may be about to manifest itself and it could be bad news for the prospect of the restoration of the Clinton dynasty. There is some chatter now that none other than Vice President Joe Biden may be considering a run for the White House in 2016. Democrats have to be getting increasingly jittery over the prospect that Mrs. Clinton may not even make it to the nomination with the cascading series of scandals that continue to dog her. The Dems very unwisely put all of their eggs in that one rotten basket and if Hillary goes down she is going to take the entire party down with her.
The damned liberal New York Times reports on the possibility in the story “Joe Biden Said to Be Taking New Look at Presidential Run”:
Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his associates have begun to actively explore a possible presidential campaign, which would upend the Democratic field and deliver a direct threat to Hillary Rodham Clinton, several people who have spoken to Mr. Biden or his closest advisers say.
Mr. Biden’s advisers have started to reach out to Democratic leaders and donors who have not yet committed to Mrs. Clinton or who have grown concerned about what they see as her increasingly visible vulnerabilities as a candidate.
The conversations, often fielded by Mr. Biden’s chief of staff, Steve Ricchetti, have taken place through hushed phone calls and quiet lunches. In most cases, they have grown out of an outpouring of sympathy for Mr. Biden since the death of his son Beau, 46, in May.
On Saturday, the New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd reported that Mr. Biden had been holding meetings at his residence, “talking to friends, family and donors about jumping in” to challenge Mrs. Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two nominating states.
One longtime Biden supporter said the vice president had been deeply moved by his son’s desire for him to run.
“He was so close to Beau and it was so heartbreaking that, frankly, I thought initially he wouldn’t have the heart,” the supporter, Michael Thornton, a Boston lawyer, said in an interview. “But I’ve had indications that maybe he does want to — and ‘that’s what Beau would have wanted me to do.’ ”
Mr. Biden’s path, should he run, would not be easy. Mrs. Clinton has enormous support among Democrats inspired by the idea of electing a woman as president, and her campaign has already raised millions of dollars.
While it’s probably no more than just a wild hair up old Joe’s ass, the advance public relations squad has already floated the trial balloon. The meme that Biden would be fulfilling the wishes of his now tragically deceased son – not the cokehead – who implored him to do so could be the motivating factor for the Cheshire cat to do the unthinkable by crashing the Clinton coronation ball. Team Clinton is sweating the load right now as the aura of invulnerability has already been impinged upon by Bernie Sanders who has been rousing the anti-Hillary rabble but who has as much chance as Deion Sanders of mounting a serious challenge to the queen. Biden however is a different animal entirely.
While the liberal establishment spinmeisters are working overtime to bat down the rumors – they are in too deep in their push to put a woman into the White House and shatter that big glass ceiling – it would be very prudent for a party that is one Hillary indictment away from extinction to hedge it’s bets.
Oh to be a fly on the wall in the Team Hillary command bunker.
