With Hillary looking weaker by the day, or at least by the interview, Vice President Biden has made clear that he’s not standing down from the presidential sweepstakes. That’s my take on his otherwise inexplicable trip to Philadelphia today to show how much he likes Greek people:
At 8:00 PM, the Vice President will deliver remarks at the Grand Banquet of the 42nd Biennial Clergy-Laity Congress of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The Vice President’s remarks at this event are open press.
Pennsylvania is also am important Democratic primary state.
As long as Hillary has seized the Gaffe King mantle from Biden, there’s little reason for him to back off. Stranger things have happened in politics than a Biden presidential nomination.
I mean, not much stranger, but it could happen.
The VP has made sure to consistently present himself as an ultra-liberal firebrand willing to attack Republicans in the nastiest manner possible. The Democratic base really likes such meanness.
There will be an opening on Hillary’s left, and if Elizabeth Warren doesn’t run, Biden may be the one to jump right into it. As much as Hillary’s been too esteemed as a candidate, Biden may be this cycle’s victim of misunderestimations.
