I'll Have What He's Drinking
Joe Biden announces his intention
to run for President in 2008.After more than 30 years in the United States Senate and nearly 20 years after his first try for his party’s Presidential nomination, Joseph Biden has no doubts about making another run for the White House.
“I’m in,” the Delaware Democrat said Friday as he began a five-day visit to the first-in-the-nation primary state.
“I know I’m supposed to hedge, but I’m in.”
Biden dropped out of the 1988 nomination race amid allegations of plagiarism.
The next person to think mano a mano
Joe Biden has any chance of winning the nomination, let alone the presidency, will be the first. He's been pretty solid on the war, which unfortunately means he gets no traction against Hillary on that issue. If Hillary decides not to run, which I doubt very much, he could be the biggest beneficiary.
If Hillary does run and as I expect, Gore, Kerry and Edwards are also running? Then Biden has virtually no chance. Biden's something of a stiff on the campaign trail, and he's well known for his supercilious and abrupt demeanor. His likeability quotient is practically nil.
