This feeling is a common sense view of Joe Biden future….
He has run for President twice before….
Neither effort was in anyway successful….
He has just come off a very rough time personally….
He is NOW sitting as close to the office as anyone can…
But in running ?
He would have to burn a LOT of bridges and put two people that he likes vey much in a tough position….
And he would have to put together a BIG money and organizational effort that most establishment Democarts would frown at, whit no promise he would win and with the worry that he might wound Hillary Clinton chances to keep a Democrat in the White House for the future….
Biden would be a likable, smart and well expereienced President….
But he most probably has missed his chance by being what he has done extremly well….Being Vice President….
The vast majority of Democratic insiders from the early states don’t believe Joe Biden will run for president, despite evidence that he is seriously considering a 2016 bid.
That’s the assessment of the POLITICO Caucus, our weekly bipartisan survey of the top strategists, activists and operatives in Iowa and New Hampshire. Their responses come as speculation swirls about whether the vice president will jump into the Democratic primary against his longtime colleague, and likely nominee, Hillary Clinton.
“He’s a truly wonderful man universally loved by NH Democrats, but I can’t imagine him undertaking such a monumental underdog effort at such a difficult time for his family and with the massive monetary, people and campaign advantages of the Clinton campaign,” a New Hampshire Democrat said, referring to the recent death of Biden’s son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden.
“An objective reading of VP Biden’s chances of winning the nomination will force him to accept the reality that he should not enter the race for the Democratic nomination,” an Iowa Democrat said.
