Jill Biden: ‘Joe Would Make a Great President’

Vice President Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, spurred new talk today of a Biden 2016 presidential candidacy when she said her husband would be an excellent fit for the job.

“Joe would make a great president,’’ she told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. “I don’t know whether this is his last campaign. We’re focusing on this campaign and winning this campaign. I take one campaign at a time.’’

Well, if Biden had another campaign in him, it presumably wouldn’t be to run for Senate.

Dr. Biden indicated all is forgiven since the vice president went off script last month and said he backs gay marriage, forcing President Obama to rush the “evolution” of his support for it. But she suggested there was some patching up to do.

“You know, Joe and Barack – they’ve worked this out – it’s fine, you know, Joe speaks from the heart, that’s what he did,” she said.

Dr. Biden suggested the overriding issue of Biden’s last campaign was getting the United States out of Iraq.

“Last time when he ran, I supported him. I wanted us out of Iraq and I felt that Joe would do that, but Barack did it, so everything has worked out,’’ she said.

  1. At last count Biden has run for Democratic nomination for President 117 times and has received a total of 34 votes. Why not try again?

  2. When my fiancee told me 35 years ago (a) there wasn’t going to be a wedding, (b)she had found someone else and (c) she’d really appreciate it if she never heard from me again I figured out pretty quickly that it was over. Biden would STILL be asking her if she was serious

  3. How nice, she supports her hubby. Four more years are not going to be kind to VPBiden so we don’t have to worry about him stepping on his, um, tongue in 2016.

  4. “Last time when he ran, I supported him. I wanted us out of Iraq and I felt that Joe would do that, but Barack did it, so everything has worked out,’’ she said.

    I’m sorry, but she’s an idiot.

    • and this woman is a so-called “doctor” ? when you look at it, she must some serious issues.. just look who she’s married to..
      …nuff said :)

  5. What a dolt. She based her husband’s candidacy on him getting use out of Iraq? Seriously, I doubt goofy Joe could punch his way out of a wet paper bag. After the last 3 and half years does she really believe Obama and Obiden deserve a second term? What freaking planet is she on? Much less a term as President for Goofy in 2016? God only knows what gibberish he’d be spouting by then.

  6. Well, her comments confirm one thing – the left has a pathetically low qualifications bar for who they want to represent them. Apparently, they’ll settle for some unqualified, inexperienced, horses’ rump (Jerry Brown, Joe Biden, Dingy Harry, Nancy Botox, the Honorable Senator, Madam Joan Kerry, and Barack Ubama) and don’t really care that they couldn’t govern their way out of a brown paper sack with a pair of scissor and a friggin’ blow torch.

    • Joe is a first class “schnorer” – cheapskate. Mr/Mrs. B gave less than $400 a year over a ten-year period leading up to 2008 and nothing has changed since.They take the adage, “charity begins at home” to serve themselves at anyone’s expense, except theirs.

    • I read that article also and even worse than costing us over a million dollars a year flying back to Delaware every weekend, it’s outrageous that Biden often flies home on Friday, but then flies back on Saturday to play golf with POTUS (about $20,000 for that golf game!).

      I’d love to see Keith do a post about how the Amtrak Senator is now the Air Force Two VP.

  8. Why is she “Dr. Jill Biden?” Her dissertation was published under the name “Jill Jacobs-Biden.”

    And, for the record, she has a Doctor of Education. She is NOT an MD or a PhD.
